We have to bless Him (First part)  

Verse of the day: Deuteronomy 8:10 When you have eaten and are full, then you shall bless the Lord your God for the good land which He has given you 

I’ve never heard anyone who does not want to be blessed. Even those who do not believe in God manifest a deep desire to be blessed one way or the other. Blessing someone means making him happy whether in opening a door to his needs or in doing what his heart needs. God has many ways to show his love toward his people by blessings them with all kind of blessings and even the new testament continues to talk about blessings. 

As you have already guessed, just by reading the title of this teaching, we will not talk about God’s blessing toward his people but the opposite. We will only talk about human blessing toward God. This may sound strange but the bible recommends us to also bless the Lord. The verse of the day (Deuteronomy 8:10) says that if you have eaten and are satisfied, you are supposed to bless the Lord for all He has given you. 

Like I often say, nobody can pretend to do not have anything to bless the Lord for. Maybe you are not satisfied concerning money but you are in good health with no pain on your body! You may be in a poor country or family but your name is written in the book of life and a nice place is waiting for you in heaven according to Jesus’ promise (John 14:2). 

All the people who complain of having nothing to thank the Lord are those who see everything in the flesh and cannot open their spiritual eyes. The bible encourages us to set our minds on things above and not on earthly things (Colossians 3:2). Only those who set their minds on things above are able to bless the Lord and bless Him every day with no condition because if we are in Christ, we are satisfied of God’s blessings and He wants us to bless Him back. 

We are spiritually blessed every day but we need to have spiritual eyes to notice it. Those who set their minds on earthly things are not able to bless the Lord every day because earthly things are naturally unstable. If your blessing toward the Lord depends on earthly things, you understand that there will be many timeouts or time of complaining.

In the second part, we will dig in this thought in order to understand how to develop an attitude of always blessing the Lord.
