How do you call out to God? Do you bless His name? Do you bless Jesus? Has it ever occurred to you that you should bless God? What does it mean to bless God? How has God blessed you throughout your life?
I’m convinced many of us have never thought about blessing God. Yet, we do ask and expect God to bless us. Blessing God is something we, as Christians, should do on a regular basis. Especially if we expect Him to bless us.
Blessing God is not much different than Him blessing us. You may ask, “How can I give an Almighty God a blessing?” It is not difficult. There are numerous ways we can bless God. We can bless Him much the same as the writer of Psalm 118 does in verse 26 we see below. We can simply say “bless you God.”
But here is where the crux of the blessing comes in. We must bless Him from our heart. It cannot be rote recitation. It is much the same as any other form of worship we give God. All of it must come from our heart rather than merely going through the motions.
We can also bless God by returning His love, carrying out His work, witnessing to others, allowing the Holy Spirit to produce fruit through us. Yes, the fruits of the Spirit as seen in Galatians 5:22-23 can be a blessing to God. Why? As God works through us, we respond to Him. Our response is a blessing to God.
Even though the above listed items are a blessing to God, we should still make a habit out of speaking that blessing to God. We will feel better knowing we have done something as a blessing for God. He will also be grateful that we thought to recognize Him.
I pray we all choose to bless God. I pray we bless Him in all that we do. I pray each one of us speaks a blessing to God on a regular basis to show our gratitude to Him. Bless God. Thank Him for His blessings. Allow Him to work through you. Bless Him in all you do.
Blessed is he who comes in the name of the Lord.
From the house of the Lord we bless you.
