Blessed is the man (or woman) who ...

Psalm 112: 1 - 10

Blessed is the man (who) feareth The Lord (YHWH), (who) delighteth (continually) greatly in His commandments.
His seed (children) shall be mighty upon earth: the generation of the upright shall be blessed.
Wealth and riches shall be in his house: and his righteousness endureth forever.
Unto the upright there ariseth Light in the darkness: he is gracious, and full of compassion, and righteous.
A good man showeth favor, and lendeth (without expecting anything in return): he will guide his affairs with discretion (judgment).
Surely he shall not be moved forever: the righteous shall be in everlasting remembrance.
He shall not be afraid of evil tidings: his heart is fixed, trusting in The Lord (YHWH).
His heart is established, he shall not be afraid, until he see his desire upon his enemies.
He hath dispersed, he hath given to the poor; his righteousness endureth forever; his horn shall be exalted with honor.
The wicked shall see it, and be grieved; he shall gnash with his teeth, and melt away: the desire of the wicked shall perish.

... just had to share this with you!
It is a good reminder of how much God cares, in detail!, about those who believe in and trust their lives to Him. And it shows us that, if we are called "righteous" by Him, because of our belief in His Son, Yeshua the Messiah, God our Father will surely reward us for our generosity, and doing what is just and right in His sight.

May The Lord be with you, all your days, showing Himself strong on your behalf!
