Blessings for Obedience 09-25-18

Good morning everyone. Rejoice in the Lord always and again I say rejoice. The word “Obedience” is heavy in my spirit. We are very fortunate to be children of God for He just keeps blessing those who obey. We are going to consume a meal on that very subject today.

Today’s Prayer

Father, as we pray for Your guidance for our nation in these critical times, give us the wisdom to measure our decisions by Your yardstick. If we are truthful with ourselves, we will realize that You measure a man or a woman by his or her character. You consider their daily actions and dealings, how they live their lives, how they treat their families and friends; not by their words and promises, but by whether they live by our nation’s laws, and whether their word is their bond. It’s true that You alone are the final judge of one’s heart, one’s motives, and one’s life, but You have called each of us as citizens to decide, not those who are qualified to go to heaven, but rather those who are worthy to hold the high offices of our nation. Every day we are expected to make these kinds of judgments, and to decide how our own actions and those of others, the lives we live, and the examples that we set at work and at home will help or hinder our nation, and determine our children’s inheritance. Can we demand less of our leaders and ourselves? Help us, we pray, for it is our call. In Jesus’ name we pray. Amen.

Let’s eat.

Blessings for Obedience

Deuteronomy 28:1-14

 “If you fully obey the Lord your God and carefully keep all his commands that I am giving you today, the Lord your God will set you high above all the nations of the world. You will experience all these blessings if you obey the Lord your God:

Your towns and your fields will be blessed.
Your children and your crops will be blessed.
The offspring of your herds and flocks will be blessed.
Your fruit baskets and breadboards will be blessed.
Wherever you go and whatever you do, you will be blessed.

 “The Lord will conquer your enemies when they attack you. They will attack you from one direction, but they will scatter from you in seven!

The Lord will guarantee a blessing on everything you do and will fill your storehouses with grain. The Lord your God will bless you in the land he is giving you.

 “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 swore he would do. Then all the nations of the world will see that you are a people claimed by the Lord, and they will stand in awe of you. “The Lord will give you prosperity in the land he swore to your ancestors to give you, blessing you with many children, numerous livestock, and abundant crops. The Lord will send rain at the proper time from his rich treasury in the heavens and will bless all the work you do. You will lend to many nations, but you will never need to borrow from them. If you listen to these commands of the Lord your God that I am giving you today, and if you carefully obey them, the Lord will make you the head and not the tail, and you will always be on top and never at the bottom. You must not turn away from any of the commands I am giving you today, nor follow after other gods and worship them.

Quote of the Day

One of the marks of spiritual maturity is the quiet confidence that God is in control – without the need to understand why He does what He does.
