Daily devotional: I am blessed!

Scripture
Blessed are those who dwell in your house; they are ever praising you. Blessed are those whose strength is in you.... O Lord Almighty, blessed is the man who trusts in you.
Psalm 84:4,5a,12 NIV

Observation
Last time I was in Psalm 84 I focused on the similar longing I have for the house of God (v.2, 10), but this time I am also realizing how blessed I am because of my affinity and my yearning for God! In three places in this one Psalm, it says that I am blessed. And, "The Lord God is a sun and shield; the Lord bestows favor and honor; no good thing does he withhold from those whose walk is blameless." (v. 11)

Application
Continue to trust in the Lord my God, to rest and rely on His strength, and to long for His house. Know that I am blessed!

Prayer
Lord, I am truly blessed because of You. As Terry said last night, I am seated next to You in the heavenlies because I am in Christ Jesus. I am in Christ and I have much benefit as a result! Thank you so much for saving me and for blessing me over and over beyond all that I could ask or imagine. I love you!
