Psalm 84:4 (KJV) “Blessed are they that dwell in thy house: they will be still praising thee”
In 1 Kings 20:39-40 (KJV), a prophet sent by the Lord to King Ahab painted his face with ashes disguising himself, then this conversation ensued:
Prophet: “Thy servant went out into the midst of the battle; and, behold, a man turned aside, and brought a man unto me, and said, Keep this man: if by any means he be missing, then shall thy life be for his life, or else thou shalt pay a talent of silver. And as thy servant was busy here and there, he was gone.
King Ahab: “So shall thy judgment be; thyself hast decided it”.
The prophet hasted, took the ashes off his face, so the king discerned him that he was of the prophets and he said unto the King, “thus saith the Lord, Because thou hast let go out of thy hand a man whom I appointed to utter destruction, therefore thy life shall go for his life, and thy people for his people”.
The life of King Ahab was in his own hand; he was to by himself decide what becomes of him, but he failed because he disobeyed God and death was the consequence.
God’s instructions are clear and are spelled out multiple times in the scriptures. One of such is captured in today’s text: “Blessed are they that dwell in thy house: they will be still praising thee”.
Sadly, many have chosen the path of Ahab. They constantly disobey God’s instruction, thus choosing a curse instead of a blessing. Why would anyone do this? Don’t they love themselves? No, they don’t, if they do, they will seek to obey God and enjoy the attending blessings.
Do you really love yourself? If you do, you will seek to know God’s instructions and obey them.
Prayer: Father, I ask that you help me do your will so I don’t by myself stop the flow of your blessings towards me. Amen!
