Blessed Before God - Radical

Blessed Before God

People inside and outside the church talk about being “blessed,” but what does it truly mean to be blessed by God? To have good health? To be financially secure? To be successful in your job? To have a loving family and good friends? Based on Psalm 84, being blessed means dwelling with God and experiencing communion with him. In this message from David Platt, we’ll see how the sorrows and the holy longing of the psalmist is satisfied only by the God of Scripture. That same satisfaction is still the blessing today for all who come to God through Christ.

It’s hard to not be affected by what we see on the news of what’s happening in the world right now. Currently, right before our eyes, we see incredible suffering happening in Afghanistan. According to Radical’s Stratus Index (, Afghanistan sits at the top of the list for the country with the most dire physical and spiritual needs.

Less than 1% of all money given to missions goes to unreached people and places.*

That means that the people with the most urgent spiritual and physical needs on the planet are receiving the least amount of support. Let's change that!
