Has God Not  Promised To Bless You?

Sometimes life beats us down so much that we give up hoping and believing that anything good will happen for us. If that is the way you currently feel, read these words: I know the plans I have for you, says the Lord...plans for good... to give you a future and a hope" (Jeremiah 29:11). God has a great plan for each of us, however, not all will experience it. Why? Because: (1). We don't believe we have rights and privileges. We actually believe God can save us and take us to heaven when we die, but don't think He can do anything about our past, present, of future. (2). We live below the level He intended because we see ourselves in the wrong light. We believe He can bless anybody-except us-because we are not worthy. God has clothed each of us in the righteousness of Christ, so you are worthy in His sight and He has plans to "bless you as He has promised." In the Bible days when a new king came to power, he made sure the old king and his family were put to death; that way nobody could rise up against him. So when David replaced King Saul, Mephibosheth, Saul's grandson, fled to the wilderness in fear. But David was a different kind of king, instead of seeking to destroy his predecessor's family, he asked, "is there still anyone left of the house of Saul, that I may show kindness for Jonathan's sake?" (2 Samuel 9:1). You may be asking why would God bless you? The answer is simple but clear: for Christ's sake!
