God’s Blessings ARE Chasing You Down!
My husband is a heat-seeking missile. I mean that in the purist way!
(I know this picture is kind of blurry but it was too perfect to pass up :)))
In my book Life Unstuck, in Chapter 20, Unstuck Woman Warrior, I share his story about serving in Vietnam. His position was Forward Artillery Observer. His job was to go ahead of the troops, seek out enemy activity and send next step instructions back to the men.
As a Marine, my husband learned a few facts about a weapon called a “heat-seeking missile” that can travel thousands of miles in search of its intended target. The person, place or thing has no hope of getting out of its way. When the target is set, the takeover is inevitable.
That is how God’s blessings can be for us. They are like HEAT SEEKING MISSILES!
IF we will keep God in first place in our lives and seek His way and His plans, we cannot be missed.
The takeover of His blessing is inevitable.
We read last week in Deut 28:1-2 that WHEN WE WALK IN GOD’S WAYS…His blessings will overtake us.
Today’s verse in our Month of Monday’s, January theme of BLESSINGS is Psalm 84:11 (Sign up to receive your monthly calendar on my home page!)
11 For the Lord God is our sun and our shield.
He gives us grace and glory.
The Lord will withhold no good thing
from those who do what is right. (NLT)
Another version says it this way:
11 For the Eternal God is a sun and a shield.
The Eternal grants favor and glory;
He doesn’t deny any good thing
to those who live with integrity.(The Voice)
All we have to do to enjoy God’s blessings is to keep doing the right thing; making the right choices; staying humble and seeking His right way of living.
Granted. We WILL mess up.
This is what I am learning in the QUEST of Faith:
God’s grace is a gift: Faith is a QUEST!
Salvation is a gift: Holiness is a QUEST!
Love is a gift: Surrender is a QUEST!
Thank you, Lord that YOU are my FAO (Forward Artillery Observer). Thank you that you are a heat-seeking missile in my life and when I lean into you, call upon you and seek your way, your blessings will chase me down, help me overcome the enemy and give me victory every single time! Amen.

Sometimes when were facing storms in our lives, I (we) tend to forget that God is always with us and his blessings follow us as well. I’ve been through a few storms lately, but I Looking for all the good that God is working out instead of dwelling on the storm.
Romans 8:28 NIV~And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who have been called according to his purpose.
Hugs to you and have a blessed day! Joanne
Thank you, Pat for reminding us how we can receive God’s blessings!
