Obey and Watch God Bless You

These are the commands, decrees and laws the LORD your God directed me to teach you ...in the land that you are crossing the Jordan to possess…  Hear, Israel, and be careful to obey so that it may go well with you and that you may increase greatly in a land flowing with milk and honey…
Hear, O Israel: The LORD our God, the LORD is one. Love the LORD your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your strength.
These commandments that I give you today are to be on your hearts. Impress them on your children. Talk about them when you sit at home and when you walk along the road, when you lie down and when you get up.  Tie them as symbols on your hands and bind  them on your foreheads.  Deuteronomy 6:1-8

There is only one path to the blessings of God -- obedience to God's Word. There is only one path to peace and prosperity -- obedience to God's Word. There is only one way to ensure that life will go well for you -- obedience to God's Word. It sounds simple, but it is the simple truth! Obedience to God's word sets us on the path to divine blessings and favor!
And that is why Satan fights tooth and nail to cause us to doubt the reliability of God's word and even pushes us to disobey it!

God promised to bless and prosper Israel but this was contingent upon obedience to the commands He had given them. God knew that by keeping His commands, Israel would prosper and increase greatly hence the strong admonition to walk in obedience.

Obedience is the key to your blessings! Obedience will cause the windows of Heaven to openly rain down favor on your life. Obedience will cause your prayers to be answered by Heaven. Obedience will cause God to shine His face upon you.

There is no substitute for obedience. Put the word of God securely in your heart. Impress God's word on your children. Make God's word a vital part of your family discussions. Let God's word be a visible part of you and watch God pour His favor on you. Obey and watch God bless you!

Prayer: Lord, I thank you for the favor that comes from obeying your word. Please help me to walk in total obedience so that it may go well with me for your glory. Amen.
