“He died at a good old age, having enjoyed long life, wealth and honor. His son Solomon succeeded him as king.” (1 Chr 29:28)

Here is a great example of what it means to be blessed. We don’t have to be super-spiritual about this. God understands we live in a physical world and have desires that have physical manifestations that are required to fulfill them.

Would long life, wealth, and honor be a reasonable definition of a successful life and the blessing of God? Perhaps we could add fulfilling relationships and good health to the list.

Whatever we would consider a blessing that would be a desire of our heart and honoring to the God we serve is a request we can lay before the throne. Ask for a blessing today, not out of a sense that you are worthy, because none of us are, but out of a relationship with a heavenly Father Who would like to bless us.

Quick Prayer: Bless me, Lord. Amen.
