To be blessed is to receive and enjoy divine help, favour and protection. One of the deepest longings in man’s heart is to receive blessings from the Lord. Note the conditions for obtaining God’s blessings (vs.1-2). To fully obey the Lord and carefully follow all His commands is what many of us are struggling with (cf. King David in 1 Kings 15:5). How can we overcome all the actions and attitudes that prevent us from obeying God?
Carefully read vs.3–13 and in your notebook, write the area or scope of God’s blessings for those who obey Him. You will see that God’s blessing is all-embracing. No area of life is left outAll true blessings come from the Lord (vs.1, 7-13). Many people run from one man of God to another, from one prayer house to another etc, in search of blessings. True blessings from God is not in laying on of hands, pronouncement from a powerful man of God, giving fat offerings or pouring of anointing oil, etc.
It is received from God when we fully obey Him, and carefully follow His Word. As Moses assured the Israelites of God’s blessings if they obey God, the Lord will bless all who fully obey Him today. How obedient are you?
