Where Can I Look For Blessing In My Life? Psalm 87:7

This short post has some inspiring thoughts to help you find the blessing in your life.

***

We feel dried and empty. We wonder, "Where is the good and where can we find blessing?"

"As they make music they will sing, 'All my fountains are in you.'" Psalm 87:7.

This verse concludes a Bible passage that celebrates a people's identity with their place of worship and faith.

ALL
All excludes nothing; it is not most or some but every single one.  All gives an idea of abundance- not just some or a few but a limitless all.

MY
Blessings are in storage waiting to be given to each of us.

FOUNTAINS
The Bible used various metaphors such as the fountains and rivers, these refer to sources of life and blessing.

In all literature a fountain illustrates a source or a place of origin.

This fountain picture makes us think of a spring in the desert where desirable, delicious, refreshing water is overflowing out toward us. This source cannot be contained or limited naturally.

ARE IN
This is an absolute statement, and a point of reference. If you said, X marks the spot, the X would be Him.
     * He holds our blessings,
     * He is a source of blessing,
     * He is administering our blessings.
     * He is able to give limitless blessings.

YOU
Only God can be the source and giver of such blessings. He is rich in blessing and can never be used up.

LET THE BLESSINGS FLOW
Our sin may block blessing from filling our lives. God has already given the greatest blessing when he sent his son to die to pay for our sin and give us eternal life. If he has already given the biggest and best the other blessings we need are small by comparison and he is clearly willing to give them too.

God offers to be the fountain of blessing in your life, Jesus put it one way when he said, "I have come that they may have life and have it abundantly." John 10:10. And he invites us to him when he said. "Come unto me all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest." Matthew 11:28
