How To Live A Blessed Life

I do not know of anyone who does not want to be blessed, but just wanting to be blessed is not going to get us there. I believe that there are three major things that we must do in order to live a blessed life. We must believe that God is real; we need to know who we are in Christ Jesus and we must be led by the Holy Spirit.
Everyone knows that there is a God but some will not admit to it. They would rather attempt to reason His non- existence but within themselves, they know. Every creature knows that there is a God and man is no exception. However, knowing that there is a God and He being personal to us is two different things.
Our road to living a blessed life will never be accomplished just by knowing that there is a God. He has to be a personal God to us. Hebrews 11:6 reads for without faith it is impossible to please Him for he who comes to God must believe that He is and that He is a rewarder of those who diligently seek Him. In order to have faith in something, there must be a tangible or spiritual contact with it. So once we believe that God exist; then we would need to get a personal relationship with Him. How do we get a personal relationship with Him? By making Jesus Lord of our live and by studying His word and taking it for what it said, not adding to it nor taking away from it.
There are some people who have a personal relationship with Him but they do not have a clue as to who they are in Him; they continue in the milk of the word of God. They can get nurture by it but very little growth. The ones who are nurtured by milk are easily condemned because they have not grasp that they are the righteousness of God by Christ Jesus. They would continually ask for forgiven of their sins because they have not understood that Christ took upon Himself all of our sins therefore, there are no sins accounted unto us. They do not know that they have authority in the name of Jesus to cast out demons or to speak things that does not exist and they will manifest. They do not understand that they are heirs of God and joint-heirs with Christ Jesus so they still believe that they are servants of God instead of sons and for this reason they would come to Him with a mind of a servant, begging Him. They are still mindful of the Law and have very little knowledge of grace so they would spend more time concentrating on works rather than the love of God and His grace for us but a skilled believer knows these things and he would talk in it. He knows who he is in Christ Jesus; a son of God and an heir of God. He is aware that as He (Jesus) is so are we in the world. A skillful Christian knows that no weapon formed against Him will prosper because the Angels of the Lord are encamped round about him to protect and to deliver him. A skillful Christian is one who has found himself in the word of God.
The third way to live a blessed life is to be led by the Holy Spirit. Jesus did not pray to the Father to send the Holy Spirit to us for Him to lie dormant. He has a job to do and it is to assist us but if we do not allow Him, He cannot do it. The leading of the Holy Spirit is right for us and it would behoove us to listen to Him if we want good success also Romans 8:14 identifies believers because it reads, for as many as are led by the Spirit of God, these are sons of God. If we are led by the Holy Spirit, success will always be there for us because there is no failure in Him.
God has not told us to do anything that is too difficult to do and these three things are not difficult therefore, if we would do it, our life can be drastically changed for the best.
