2 Samuel 7:19 – The blessing of the LORD

2 Samuel 7:19
29 Therefore now let it please thee to bless the house of thy servant, that it may continue for ever before thee: for thou, O Lord God, hast spoken it: and with thy blessing let the house of thy servant be blessed for ever.

-Everyone wants to be blessed, right?  How many will take the time to consider where a blessing comes from?  Notice David’s specific request here in 2 Samuel– He doesn’t just want to be blessed, he wants to be blessed with the Lord’s blessing.  Blessing simply means favor.  The world can show you favor, even the powers of darkness can show you favor.  What’s the difference between these and the Lord’s blessing you ask?  The blessing of the LORD, it maketh rich, and he addeth no sorrow with it. (Proverbs 10:22)
