We talk alot about blessings: We “bless” our food, we “bless” ourselves, We “bless” one another when we feel bad, or when tragic circumstances happen to one another.

Let us define what is a blessing. Webster’s dictionary defines blessing as the following:
a. To make holy
b. To ask divine favor for
c. To favor or endow
d. To make happy or prosperous
e. To praise or glorify
f. To protect from evil

I need to accept God as the source of my blessing because I cannot receive the best in life on my own.

“Hallelujah! Happy is the man who fears the Lord, taking great delight in His commands.” (Psalm 112:1, HCSB)

“Praise the Lord” – in Hebrew it means “Hallelujah.” It means to get excited about what God provides. We sing to Him because of all He does for us. The true nature of blessing then is this: We don’t ask for more of what we could get ourselves. We ask for what only God can give us.

The Principle is this: YOU CANNOT MAKE GOODNESS IN LIFE ON YOUR OWN!

You can do well on your own: Make money, have a family or live long life. But the BEST in your life is only brought by God. If we fear, listen to, obey, and praise God – or put Him first, we learn what true blessings are.

Only GOD can bring us a “blessing.” God makes us holy. God gives us favor. God makes us happy and prosperous. God protects us from evil. So God is the object of your praise and glory.

TS: So the condition for receiving a blessing is fearing, turning to, respecting God. So to get a favor from God, we must praise Him.

Psalm 113 : my take away
There is none like our God ,who seated on high, whose glory is above the heavens, who is high above all nation’s…looks farrrr down on the heavens and Earth and takes notice of the lowly..

  1. Raises the poor from dust to make them sit with princes
  2. Lifts the poor from the ash heap to make them sit with princes of his people
    3.gives the barren woman a home, making her the joyous mother
    Such a God is indeed worthy of all praises of all mankind (1-3).
    Blessed be the name of the Lord!
    Praise the name of the Lord!
