‘God bless you.’ I’ve said that to people, have you? What do we mean when we say that? I think I’ve meant – ‘may everything go your way’.
But some of the ways Jesus described blessing in the Bible seem to be a little different. In Matthew 5, in what is called the Beatitudes, Jesus refers to a whole range of people being blessed that I wouldn’t think of having a blessing —-
- Blessed are the poor in spirit
- Blessed are those who mourn
- Blessed are the meek
- Blessed are the peacemakers
- Blessed are you when people insult you…because of me
Jesus puts us in a topsy-turvy world with these words. Maybe blessing will bring about circumstances that humble us, so that we are poor in spirit. Maybe to be blessed will bring about mourning, so we can understand comfort. Maybe to be blessed will bring about strife, so we can learn to be peacemakers.
Our self-centeredness makes us want exactly what we want. What God is about is having a close relationship with Him and making us more like Him Sometimes that means having the opposite of what we think will be a blessing occur to us so that the blessing can follow.
So, when you are going through troubles it might just be God blessing you, you just haven’t seen the end results yet.
