Luke 11:27, 28  As he was speaking, a woman in the crowd called out, “God bless your mother—the womb from which you came, and the breasts that nursed you!” Jesus replied, “But even more blessed are all who hear the word of God and put it into practice.” (NLT)

Jesus received a compliment and passed one along as well. His mother, Mary, was blessed by her obedience to God’s plan and purpose for her life. We, too, can live more blessed lives by following God’s plan and purpose for our lives. 

Jesus did not say, “Yes, my mom was blessed to have me!” Instead, he clarified that we can live a God-blessed life when we, like his mother Mary, hear and obey God. 

Turn back to Luke 1. Begin reading at verse 26 and continue through verse 38. God made it clear what he wanted her to do. She had legitimate questions in keeping with her character. When she understood her assignment as fully as anyone could, she responded in the manner each of us should. 

Mary responded, “I am the Lord’s servant. May everything you have said about me come true.” And then the angel left her.”
‭‭Luke‬ ‭1‬:‭38‬ ‭NLT‬‬

What Jesus said to the woman in the crowd is also his message to us. Hear what God is saying and do what he says. God’s ways are higher and better than our ways. His will and ways are better than our will and ways. What he wants for us is better than anything we want for ourselves. 

The more blessed life is living in step with Jesus. It is knowing him and experiencing him in every moment of our lives. It is abiding in him (John 15), drawing nourishment from him, bearing the fruit he produces out of our joyful obedience. 

I will live a more blessed life by following God’s plan and purpose for my life.

Our Father, what adventures lie ahead of us today? Show me the way I should go. Lead me. Redirect me as often as necessary. Fill my mind with your thoughts and my mouth with your words. Connect my hands to serve at the impulse of your love. Amen.

Daily D – Ezekiel 43:1-5

Ezekiel 43:1-5 He led me to the gate, the one that faces east, and I saw the glory of the God of Israel coming from the east. His voice sounded like the roar of a huge torrent, and the earth shone with his glory. The vision I saw was like the one I had seen when he came to destroy the city, and like the ones I had seen by the Chebar Canal. I fell facedown. The glory of the Lord entered the temple by way of the gate that faced east. Then the Spirit lifted me up and brought me to the inner court, and the glory of the Lord filled the temple.

Daily D – Ezekiel 37:3

Ezekiel 37:3 Then he said to me, “Son of man, can these bones live?” I replied, “Lord God, only you know.”

Daily D – Ezekiel 36:26-27

Ezekiel 36:26, 27 “I will give you a new heart and put a new spirit within you; I will remove your heart of stone and give you a heart of flesh. I will place my Spirit within you and cause you to follow my statutes and carefully observe my ordinances.”

Daily D – Psalm 40:6-8

Psalm 40:6-8
You do not delight in sacrifice and offering;
you open my ears to listen.
You do not ask for a whole burnt offering or a sin offering. Then I said, “See, I have come;
in the scroll it is written about me.
I delight to do your will, my God,
and your instruction is deep within me.”

Daily D – Psalm 39:4-5

Psalm 39:4, 5
“LORD, make me aware of my end
and the number of my days
so that I will know how short-lived I am.
In fact, you have made my days just inches long,
and my life span is as nothing to you.
Yes, every human being stands as only a vapor.”
Selah
