April 19 - Daily Devotional - Blessed are the Poor in Spirit

Matthew 5:3-4

“Blessed are the poor in spirit, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.  Blessed are those who mourn for they will be comforted.”

 

The realization that you are blessed where ever you are at in life will be the start of taking you higher.  You may have realized this much earlier this year or in years prior due to your devotion to following the Lord and seeking the promises of God!  Yet, with so many people still hurting there is a need to connect them too with Christ, the source of life!

 

Someone who is “poor in spirit” shows humility.  And wherever we are at in life and our understanding of God its very important to stay humble.  We are invited and received into the kingdom of heaven.  We cant earn our way in, its by the grace of God that even through we have been off the path of the things of God in the past that we are welcomed in.  Yes, we have been opened up to and enlightened that the kingdom of heaven is available to us and our desire to walk with the Lord will continue to inspire a higher and fuller level of life, but the invite is not based on our doing!  Stay humble.

 

Now often people finally do come to the realization that they cant do it on their own though some sort of trying and difficult life circumstance.  The Spirit of God has always been there, but its often through this mourning period that people finally allow the great comforter of the Spirit of God to enter into their life. 

 

LORD I KNOW YOU WATCHED ME AND ARE WAITING FOR ME TO WANT TO SPEND TIME IN YOUR PRESENCE.  I KNOW BLESSING COMES FROM OUR MOURNING PERIODS AND YOUR COMFORT IS ALWAYS AVAILABLE!  HELP ME TO STAY HUMBLE AS I RECEIVE YOUR ETERNAL BLESSINGS HERE AND NOW!

 

*Meditate, pray or affirm the words in BOLD or that are highlighted!  Look for short daily messages from me to spread seeds of hope, encouragement, and expansion of your mind, body and spirit daily!
