BLESSINGS OF OBEDIENCE
Deuteronomy 28:1-8 (New International Version Bible)
“If you fully obey the Lord your God and carefully follow all his commands I give you today, the Lord your God will set you high above all the nations on earth. All these blessings will come on you and accompany you if you obey the Lord your God: You will be blessed in the city and blessed in the country. The fruit of your womb will be blessed, and the crops of your land and the young of your livestock—the calves of your herds and the lambs of your flocks.
Your basket and your kneading trough will be blessed. You will be blessed when you come in and blessed when you go out. The Lord will grant that the enemies who rise up against you will be defeated before you. They will come at you from one direction but flee from you in seven. The Lord will send a blessing on your barns and on everything you put your hand to. The Lord your God will bless you in the land he is giving you.”
Beloved, to enjoy all the blessings above, there is a condition attached—‘obedience to everything the Lord says’ (Deuteronomy 27:10). Whether favourable or inconveniencing, be determined this 2021 that wherever God leads, you will follow. And it shall be well with you and your household, in Jesus’ name. Amen!
Hymn: Anywhere with Jesus — Jessie B. Pounds (1887)
1. Father, please give me a heart of obedience to do that which You command.
1. Thou finger of God! Fight every power that rises against me.
2. This year! My light and glory shall never go dim. I shall shine brighter.
3. Any mouth waiting to laugh my family, nation, the church and me to scorn, be silenced in shame.
4. Lord Jesus, please let every blessing I am due for, locate me this weekend.
GOD BLESS, YOU!
