September 14 – Faithful Worship Facilitates Blessings

Daily Bible Life

God blessed King Asa conditionally, in a bid to motivate him into good behavior. King Asa would receive God’s protection, only if found faithful. This meant he would suffer punishment if found unfaithful to God. The scriptures reported, “Now the Spirit of God came upon Azariah the son of Oded. And he went out to meet Asa, and said to him: “Hear me, Asa, and all Judah and Benjamin. The Lord is with you while you are with Him. If you seek Him, He will be found by you; but if you forsake Him, He will forsake you” (2 Chronicles 15:1-2).

 

Lesson:

God cares; He is loving and will bless only those who faithfully serve him. However, since the Creator cannot revoke his righteous standard, he would be unable to bless those that are inconsistent in their relationship with him. Jehovah refuses to bless people who live in sin.
Unrepentant sinners may be at an arm’s length with God unless repented. They would also miss God’s blessings. Meanwhile, people who love God and faithfully serve him will be blessed with riches and honor. Men and women who faithfully serve God will prosper in all their ways. Their blessings will glorify God and motivate others into serving him.

 

Prayer:

Dear God, I realize you love people that give you undivided attention. I am willing to give you my full devotion from today! I want to maintain a consistent relationship with you so that I can prosper, and so that you can be glorified. Therefore, I ask for your grace to live a holy life. Help me to meet your standard of righteousness. Please empower me through your Holy Spirit to walk in your ways, so that I can prosper throughout the days of my life. For in the name of Jesus Christ, I make my requests. Amen.
