Here's another scripture passage that illustrates the principle wonderfully. This is from the prophet Jeremiah in the context of God's purpose of restoration:

Behold, I will bring to it health and healing, and I will heal them and reveal to them abundance of prosperity and security. I will restore the fortunes of Judah and the fortunes of Israel, and rebuild them as they were at first. I will cleanse them from all the guilt of their sin against me, and I will forgive all the guilt of their sin and rebellion against me. And this city shall be to me a name of joy, a praise and a glory before all the nations of the earth who shall hear of all the good that I do for them. They shall fear and tremble because of all the good and all the prosperity I provide for it. (Jer 33:6-9)

Pride insidiously undermines our willingness to be needy and ask, and then masks it as humility.

I agree with that Chris. What a blessed people we are. This is one of the fundamental truth God communicated across to us at Bible Week.

All we have to do is to fervently ask God to bless us that we may bless our world.

...Nice seeing you at Bible Week.

Chris,

'The blessings of the Lord makes a person rich, and he adds no sorrow with it'. (Prov 10:22)

The prayer of Jabez has long since been a favorite piece of scripture for me since reading Bruce Wilkinson's little book of the same name shortly after becoming a Christian. Reviewing this again as a result of the past weeks teaching and reading your post reminds me that that it is well worth a second read and I am further reminded of a couple of things from Mr Wilkinson that I'd like to share...

'What's in a Name? God had more in store for Jabez than pain (which was the definition of the name Jabez). Like Jabez He (God) will never define us by our names. Our Father's name for us isn't pain or any such word! It is:
"Chosen" (John 15:19 NIV)
"Mine" (Psalm 50: 10-12)
"Beloved" (Deut 33:12)
"Sought After" (Isa 62:12 NIV)
"Friend" (James 2:23)

'And you will be given a new name by the Lord's own mouth.' (Isa 62:2)

Just a final thought... 'God never made a promise that was too good to be true' (Dwight L. Moody).

Every blessing to you and yours.

Thanks, all.

Matthew, that was the verse I was looking for! Didn't find it with quite the right wording... probably because that quote is from the NASB(?)

I shall add that to the main post.

Have a great holiday in France!

Chris

We as Christains can be nothing more than "blessed". When you look at the Psalms it starts off with the word blessed [Ps 1:1] and then the book finishes with Praise [Ps 150:6]. In the blessing let us be grateful and praise God for all that he has done [Ps 103 - The message version is pretty good].

Chris

Allow me to comment on your post rather than posting myself!

What I have discovered this past week is that more of God's blessing basically means more of God: that is a blessing that comes with a challenge: true spiritual blessing cannot be selfish as it is for the glory of God, but as God will not share his glory with another, being blessed also means less of me.

An to quote a verse (that I have quoted several times this week) "God our God blesses us that all the ends of the earth may fear him." (Psalm 67:7)



AMEN!

AMEN!
