TODAY’S WORD, 9-28-16 How To Be Blessed

Do you want to be blessed by God?  

Blessings come only by obedience to God and to His Word. If we are disobedient, we will not be blessed, but instead we will reap His disfavor and curses. The opposite of blessings are curses. We can read about this from Genesis to Revelation, more specifically Leviticus 26 and in Deuteronomy Chapter 28, which in my King James Version, is titled, ‘Obedience Blessed’. I suggest a careful reading of these chapters which shows how God will honor those who take Him seriously and will bless their lives and their nation. Having a good testimony for all to see will result in God making you:

the head, and not the tail; and thou shalt be above only and thou shalt not be beneath, if that thou hearken unto the commandments of the LORD thy God, which I command thee this day, to observe and to do them:

And thou shalt not go aside from any of the words which I command thee this day, to the right hand, or to the left, to go after other gods to serve them.” (Deut 28:10, 13-14)

God is looking for those who are faithful to listen and obey Him uncompromisingly, and without hypocrisy. His Word is “Yea” and “Amen”; it is clear as black and white, with no gray areas in between. When we are obedient children, we show God how much we love Him by worshipping and honoring Him only, doing what is pleasing to Him that brings glory to His name.

  1. Last winter I went with a group to Israel and stood where Abraham stood (Genesis 12: 3 & 6) overlooking the mountains of blessings and curses–Mt. Ebal and Mt. Gerizim. The scene really brought Deuteronomy 28 to life for me. Thank you for your excellent post and the reminder that blessings come with obedience.

  2. Here is a POWERFUL message the Lord gave to me the other night that I recorded. Extremely relevant and encouraging!

    Be Blessed!
