Blessings for Obedience
As adults, when we see the word “obedience” we surmise it applies only to children. Yet, the Word of God promises us if we are obedient to God, He will bless us abundantly.
During my quiet time early this morning, I came across the following Scripture which sums up the blessings for obedience.
If you fully obey the Lord your God by keeping all the commands I give am giving you today, the Lord your God will exalt you above all the nations of the world. You will experience these blessings if you obey the Lord your God:
You will be blessed in your towns and country.
You will be blessed with many children and productive fields.
You will be blessed with fertile herds and flocks.
You will be blessed with baskets overflowing with fruit, and with kneading bowls filled with bread.
You will be blessed wherever you go, both in coming and going.
If you obey the commands of the Lord your God and walk in His ways, the Lord will establish you as His Holy people as He solemnly promised to do. Deuteronomy 28:1-6 and vs 9
