Blessings on Obedience
“Now it shall come to pass, if you diligently obey the voice of the LORD your God, to observe carefully all His commandments which I command you today, that the LORD your God will set you high above all nations of the earth. And all these blessings shall come upon you and overtake you, because you obey the voice of the LORD your God:
God’s commands keep us away from sins, vices, ungodliness, folly and wickedness which bring misery and destruction.
Job 36:10-12 (NKJV)
He also opens their ear to instruction,
And commands that they turn from iniquity.
If they obey and serve Him,
They shall spend their days in prosperity,
And their years in pleasures.
But if they do not obey,
They shall perish by the sword,
And they shall die without knowledge.
The prosperity that comes from God, through our consistent obedience of His Words, is lasting.
Psalm 1:1-3 (NKJV)
Blessed is the man
Who walks not in the counsel of the ungodly,
Nor stands in the path of sinners,
Nor sits in the seat of the scornful;
But his delight is in the law of the LORD,
And in His law he meditates day and night.
He shall be like a tree
Planted by the rivers of water,
That brings forth its fruit in its season,
Whose leaf also shall not wither;
And whatever he does shall prosper.
So now, if your life is in prosperity – be joyful and thankful. But if you are experiencing difficulty – start to consider God’s instructions and commandments to us so that you may begin to prosper. Remember that He is a God of justice, grace and mercy.
Ecclesiastes 7:14 (NKJV)
In the day of prosperity be joyful,
But in the day of adversity consider:
Surely God has appointed the one as well as the other,
So that man can find out nothing that will come after him.
