Psalm 144:4 Man is like a breath; his days are like a fleeting shadow.

Fortunate are they!

The Beatitudes according to Don Davis

  • Fortunate are those who are so desperate that they must depend on God alone
  • Fortunate are those who’s hearts are completely broken over loss, because God himself will carry their load
  • Fortunate are those who are gentle and humble and lowly for the kingdom belongs to them – the little guy, the nobodies
  • Fortunate are those with deep longing and huge appetite for God’s righteousness for they’re going to get what they seek
  • Fortunate are those who find it easy to forgive because God is going to easily forgive them
  • Fortunate are the ones that will God’s will alone, the pure in heart that just want what God wants because these are the ones that will see God one day
  • Fortunate are those who make themselves instruments of peace among conflict because they are the ones that are going to be seen as the kids of God
  • Fortunate are those who are mistreated because of righteousness because the kingdom belongs to folks like this
  • Count yourselves fortunate when, because you identify with Jesus and his kingdom, you get enemies. When you ‘buddy up’ with Jesus you can’t be everyone’s friend. If you love Jesus and get beat-up because of him, your reward is “booming in heaven”
