"Blessed by God" Video Devotion

"Blessed by God" is the title of this KJV video devotion from Psalm 128, verses 3 through 6. Psalm 128 continues with its theme: blessed by God. What does the Psalmist picture? He shows us a man, sitting at his table with his wife and children about him. With God's blessing he will see the good of Jerusalem (God's people) all the days of his life, and will live to see his children's children. Sometimes Psalms such as this can be confusing. After all, we see saints of God, faithful to Him in every way who have lost their spouses, maybe their children have died, or they have no children, and their life is not one of peace or ease. How do we justify that picture in light of this Psalm? No matter how "good" we may be or appear to be, God does not owe us anything. Second, God, who knows our heart of hearts, takes us through rivers and valleys--even valleys of the shadow of death--that He might refine us and make us more like Him.

God Bless You,
