It’s the Best Life, Feb 2, 2014

– what you believe about God will determine your future
– number one attribute of God is kindness – it leads us to repentance
Ps. 65:11 (NLT) NKJV says that our paths will drip with abundance
Ps. 119:68, Gen 1:28 – very first thing God did was bless Adam and Eve
Ps. 111 talks about the person of God, Ps. 112 talks about the people of God
– hallelujah – praise – it changes the atmosphere of our life – it redirects the focus from me to He (Josh 6:20, Ps. 100:4)
– qualities of a blessed life:
1. fears the Lord (Ps. 112:1) – fear, not in the being afraid sense, but in honor, revere, obey, and trust (Deut. 30:19-20 NLT) – God’s given us a choice
2. loves God’s Word (v1) (Josh 1:8-9 MSG) – trust and obey by being in God’s Word – God is with you every step you take
3. family is blessed (v2) a great legacy is the successful example of your life (Ps. 37:25-26) – what we do today matters, it will influence generations
4. welth and riches are in their house (v3) (Ps. 35:27 – God takes pleasure in blessing you) Prov. 10:22 – the key is what we put first, generous people look for ways to bless others, it is a lifestyle
5. their difficult times are blessed (v4) (Ps. 46:1, 23:4, Heb 13:5 NIV, Isa 26:3 NIV) – we live from the inside out
