“God be gracious to us and bless us and make His face shine upon us; may Your ways be known on earth, Your salvation among all nations. May the peoples praise You, O God, may all the peoples praise you. May the nations be glad and sing for joy, for you rule the peoples justly and guide the nations of the earth. May the people praise You, O God; may all the people praise You. Then the land will yield its harvest, and God, our God, will bless. God will bless us, and all the ends of the earth will fear Him.”
God loves us and desires to bless us with joy, peace, mercy salvation, daily care, and an eternal home with Him in heaven. He asks us to allow Him to govern us, through obedience to His Word. He asks that His way and His will be the basis of our walk in life and He will bless us. He will righteously judge us.
God promises that the earth, the land, will yield the things we need to sustain our life. He asks that we honor, praise, worship, fear, and respect Him.
As we study God’s inspired Word, we can learn how to address every question in life. Why are we here? What is our purpose? Where are we going? God has a plan for every person in every nation. He wants us to submit to Him. He then will bless us.
Man needs God’s blessings today. God’s way will eliminate many of our massive problems that plague the world today. We can let God govern and bless us. He allows us to make the choice to believe and obey Him or to reject Him. We reap the consequences of our decisions.
“Do not be deceived, God cannot be mocked. A man reaps what he sows. The one who sows to please the sinful nature, from that nature will reap destruction; the one who sows to please the Spirit, from the Spirit will reap eternal life” — Galatians 6:7-8.
