Subtopic: How to be B-L-E-S-S-E-D

It is Godís will that everybody be blessed. It does not matter who you are, God wants you to be blessed. It does not matter how young or how old you are, God wants you to be blessed. It does not matter what race, color, ethnic, or nationality background you may be, God wants you to be blessed. It does not matter what gender you are, it does not matter how much education or money you have, it does not matter if you are single, married, separated, widowed, or divorced, God wants you to be blessed. It does not matter what part of town you may be living in, God wants you to be blessed. It is not Godís will for you to be cursed, but it is Godís will for you to be blessed.
Now to be blessed by God, there are some things that we must do. And in this message, I want to share with you seven simple things that you should do if you want to be blessed by God, and I am going to use the letters for the word blessed to describe how you can be blessed by God:

1. The first thing that you should do if you want to be blessed by God is that you must Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ. To believe on the Lord Jesus Christ means to trust in the Lord Jesus Christ, it means to rely on the Lord Jesus Christ, it means to hope in the Lord Jesus Christ, it means to have confidence in the Lord Jesus Christ, and it means to have faith in the Lord Jesus Christ. To receive your blessing from the God, you must believe on Christ because Hebrews 11:6 says, ďWithout faith, you cannot please Him, for He that cometh to God must believe that he is, and that he is a rewarder of them that diligently seek him.Ē And also, in Psalms 37:3-4 it says, ďTrust in the Lord and do good so shalt thou dwell in the land, and verily thou shalt be fed. Delight thyself also in the Lord and he shall give you the desires of your heartĒ So if you want to be blessed by God, you must believe in the Lord Jesus Christ.

2.The second thing that you must do if you want to be blessed by God, you must Live for Christ. Now, to live for Christ, you must be obey Godís commandments. To live for Christ, you must be a doer of Godís word. There are a lot of people today who think they can be blessed without being obedient to Godís word, but that is not true. If you want to be blessed by God, you must live for Christ by being obedient to Godís word.

Deuteronomy 28:1-3 says, And it shall come to pass, if thou shall hearken diligently unto the voice of the Lord thy God, to observe and to do all his commandments which I command thee this day, that the Lord thy God will set thee on high above all nations of the earth: And all these blessings shall come on thee, and overtake thee, if thou shalt hearken unto the voice of the Lord thy God. Blessed shalt thou be in the city, and blesses shalt thou be in the field.Ē

Joshua 1:8 says,
