Day 12 from the Kitchen Table
And if you faithfully obey the voice of the Lord your God, being careful to do all his commandments that I command you today, the Lord your God will set you high above all the nations of the earth. And all these blessings shall come upon you and overtake you, if you obey the voice of the Lord your God. Blessed shall you be in the city and blessed shall you be in the field. Blessed shall be the fruit of your womb and the fruit of your ground and the fruit of your cattle, the increase of your herds and the young of your flock. Blessed shall be your basket and your kneading bowl. Blessed shall you be when you come in, and blessed shall you be when you go out.
As we saw yesterday, God has created us to rule & reign in this life. The secret to success is in obeying the voice of the Lord. God’s word comes with blessing because God’s word brings with it love, life, light, liberty & luxury. God told the Hebrews that He would set them up high above the nations and blessing them richly if they would simply obey His word. That some blessing is for us today if we will listen and live in His word. God says I will bless you when you come in and when you go out. God wants to reveal Himself, His love, life, light, liberty and luxury to us and through us who believe and obey Him. God has chosen to bless you and me today. That’s what heaven looks like and that’s what God wants to do in and through us today. Risk it all for Him!
