“Blessings crown the head of the righteous” (Proverbs 10:6).
Dear friend, are you eager to know God’s promise? Today, God says, “Blessings crown the head of the righteous” (Proverbs 10:6). So according to this verse He is going to bless the righteous in the land. There are two types of blessing the Lord is promising you today. First, the Lord will cause you to shine like the sun in this land. You will do well in your studies, in your work that all the people will know that you belong to the Lord. In Matthew 13:43 Jesus says, “Then the righteous will shine like the sun in the kingdom of their Father.” In the same way you are going to shine for the Lord.
Second thing the Lord will do is to will listen and answer all your prayers. You might be thinking I have been praying so long but I have not got an answer but the Lord says to you, “I am listening to all your prayers.” The Bible says in Proverbs 15:29, “He hears the prayer of the righteous.” In the same way the Lord will listen to your prayers. When you are righteous in this world you will face troubles and trials. We know the story of Joseph in the Bible. He went through lots of struggles and problems in his life, but every time he tried to be righteous.
He ran away from the lady who tried to seduce him. He tried to please the Lord in everything he did. He was righteous. So the Lord blessed him above everyone. The Bible says in Matthew 5:10, “Blessed are those who are persecuted because of righteousness, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.” So if you are persecuted because you are righteous you should thank the Lord for you are blessed. The Lord is going to bless you abundantly. The people who persecuted you will see God’s blessing upon your life. So always try to be righteous for the sake of our Lord. Always try to be like Him. Thank the Lord for this Word for today. Try to be as righteous as possible and the Lord will bless you today.
Thank You for this promise that You will make me shine like the sun and You will listen and answer my prayers. Help me to be righteous and perfect like You my loving Father who is perfect. Give me grace to keep You in my heart and in my life. Help me excel in the work of my hands. Encourage me with Your promises.
In Jesus’ precious name, I pray. Amen.
