Unspeakable Joy Devotional

God’s Blessings. True blessings are the words and the way God gives to us His beautiful promises. Read these verses to help understand what God’s blessings are:

Isaiah 41:10 “Fear you not; for I am with you; be not dismayed; for I am your God: I will strengthen you; yes, I will help you; yes, I will uphold you with the right hand of my righteousness.”

James 1:12 “Blessed is the man that endures temptation; for when he is tried, he shall receive the crown of life, which the Lord has promised to them that love him.”

1 John 2:25 “And this is the promise that he has promised us, even eternal life.”

I love these next verses, they help us to know what we can do to receive God’s blessings:

Matthew 22:37 “Jesus said to him, You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, and with all your soul, and with all your mind.”

John 10:27-28 “My sheep hear my voice, and I know them, and they follow me: And I give to them eternal life; and they shall never perish, neither shall any man pluck them out of my hand.”

Psalm 115:13 “He will bless them that fear the Lord, both small and great.”

The ultimate blessing that God has given is the new life and forgiveness that comes through faith in His Son, Jesus Christ. The material blessings we enjoy from day to day are temporary, but the spiritual blessings available to us in Christ encompass time and eternity, as well as material and immaterial things. As the Psalmist said, “Blessed is he whose help is the God of Jacob, whose hope is in the Lord his God.” Psalm 146:5

May God bless you with the joy of His presence and the gift of His love.
