「手がきよく、心がきよらかな者、そのたましいをむなしいことに向けず、欺き誓わなかった人。 その人は主から祝福を受け、その救いの神から義を受ける。」



「幸いなことよ。悪者のはかりごとに歩まず、罪人の道に立たず、あざける者の座に着かなかった、その人。 まことに、その人は主のおしえを喜びとし、昼も夜もそのおしえを口ずさむ。 その人は、水路のそばに植わった木のようだ。時が来ると実がなり、その葉は枯れない。その人は、何をしても栄える。」 詩篇1:1-3


This morning (Monday) I am upset. There are several things I want to print, but I can’t print even one page because there is some paper jammed in my printer. I was able to remove some of it, but there is still paper jammed in the inner part of the printer. This week that began with irritation at the printer has me upset.

Sometimes Christians have similar experiences that upset them. It is because the pipeline of blessing between them and God is jammed. Why? There are three main reasons.

First of all, it is jammed because we hear the Word of God, but we do no obey it. According to James 1:25, He who looks into the perfect law of liberty and continues in it, and is not a forgetful hearer but a doer of the work, this one will be blessed in what he does.

Next, it is jammed because we have turned our soul toward vain things. In Psalm 24:4-5 it is written, He who has clean hands and a pure heart, who has not lifted up his soul to an idol, nor sworn deceitfully. He shall receive blessing from the Lord. (In the Japanese Bible, “idol” is “vain thing.”)

Also, it is jammed because somewhere in our faith-life there is unfaithfulness.
According to Proverbs 28:20,
A faithful man shall abound with blessings.

How has it been with you recently? Are you being blessed or are you not being blessed very much. If you are not being blessed very much, consider whether or not the pipeline of blessing between you and the Lord is jammed because of disobedience, vain things or unfaithfulness.

Blessed is the man who walks not in the counsel of the ungodly, nor stands in the path of sinners, nor sits in the seat of the scornful; But his delight is in the law of the Lord, and in His law he meditates day and night. He shall be like a tree planted by the rivers of water, that brings forth its fruit in its season, whose leaf also shall not wither; and whatever he does shall prosper.
(Psalm 1:1-3)
