The blessings of God Deuteronomy 28:1-14
God's blessings are conditional. In order to receive his blessings, we have to fulfill the one and only condition, that is "obeying his commands". If we are obedient to him faithfully then he will bless us continuously.
Meditate his laws and commands day and night and make sure that you must obey everything that was written in it, then he will make you prosperous and successful.
Unless we read, study and meditate God's word, we don't know what to do and what not. Stay focused on the word of god and follow his rules, then he will send his blessings in his time.
If we obey his commands
We are promised the blessing of fruitfulness:-
Everything will increase in a value. Our daily needs, things, properties, wealth will be blessed abundantly.
Blessing of victory over all your enemies:-
The Lord will defeat our enemies, when they attack us. No matter how strong they are and how many they are. If they attack us from one direction, they will run away from us in all directions. What a great protection!.
we are promised with the blessing of spiritual growth:-
The spiritual growth set apart us as God's Holi people, who will become a strong testimony of holiness before all the people, they will afraid of us.
_he will send us a rain of blessings from his store house to bless us at our work, so that, we will lend to many people, but will not borrow from anyone
Blessing of exaltation:-
he will make us head not a tail, so that we will lead many people as a Leader.
Read and meditate the word of god, follow his all commands, lead a holy life. Then God will send us the rain of blessings from his rich store house. He won't stop his blessings untill you blessed richly.
Stay Bessed Amen
“Be strong and courageous; don’t be terrified or afraid of them. For it is the LORD your God who goes with you; He will not leave you or forsake you.” -Deuteronomy 31:6
In Deuteronomy 31, Moses comes to the end of his life.
Moses commissioned the younger man Joshua in front of the entire congregation, laying hands on him and passing on authority to lead.
Moses is encouraging him with these reassuring words: “The LORD Himself goes before you and will be with you; He will never leave you nor forsake you.”
Today our God is giving the same message that Moses gave to Joshua…. “Be strong and courageous; do not fear.”
Courage is doing what you’re afraid to do. There can be no courage unless you’re scared.
Is there something holds us back from doing things for God.?
Do we feel uncertainty in our life now?
Let us declare ourselves that “My God will never leave me nor forsake me.” Never. Ever.
God never leaves us alone and without help.
God in His Love asked us to Choose Life... Deuteronomy 30:19
Wouldn't it be easier if we choose life and enjoy God's blessings?
But, our flesh wants to do the opposite for short term gratification with long term consequences.
God wanted His People to Live a Blessing Lifestyle. He so much wanted things to go well for them and their families for Generations to come. All they had to do was Obey the Word to receive the Blessings.
Life and Death, Blessings or Curses are Choices. Life is a series of choices. To make the right choice we got to hear the right voice. God's Voice or Satan's voice? Adam and Eve were given a choice and they chose Death instead of Life, listening to Satan's voice. But, thank God, He has given us another choice to get back to the Life that was once lost, the Abundant Life in Jesus, John 10:10.
God set out two choices for the Israelites and told them to chose what He wanted them to choose and that was Life.. Deutronomy 30:19. God was helping them to make the choice. All they had to do was Obey. Obedience to God's Word and Loving God with all their heart brought tremendous blessing, Deuteronomy 30:9-10.
After going through a list of horrible consequences of the curses in Deuteronomy 28:15-68, God kept on Reminding them in Chapter 30 to Obey Him. God will not choose for us, but He has already settled the outcome of our choice. Even today God is asking us to Obey Him.
God had already settled the consequences of the choice the Israelites would make. There was only two paths that they could choose to walk. One would lead to Life and Blessing and the other will lead to Death and Curses, but they had to chose the path, Deuteronomy 30:19.
Blessing is an empowerment for success and fruitfulness, whereas Curse is a Blessing Blocker that resulted in failure, delays, and unfruitfullness.
Life and Death is in the mouth or on our tongue. Proverbs 18:21. The words we speak has the power to bring life or death. We can activate Blessings and Curses through the words we speak.
Jesus exhorted us to Bless those who curse us. The Natural tendency is for us to curse those who curse us, but we who are in Christ are called to bless, Luke 6:27, 1 Peter 3:9. Jesus has became a curse for us, so that we might get the Blessing of Abraham in Christ Jesus, Galatians 3:13-14. Jesus was hung on a tree to become a curse, Deuteronomy 21:23.
When we Bless we are obeying God's Word which will result in a Blessing. We are Blessed to be a Blessing for others.
We can cancel every Curse word spoken over us with a Blessing word and walk in the Freedom by Faith through Loving God and Obeying Him, knowing that Jesus has become a curse for us. Even Today God has placed a high priority to Love and Obey Him. He has Empowered us to Love Him and Obey Him through the Indewelling of Holy Spirit...Amen.

Obedience is the Key Deuteronomy 28
Moses unequivocally says obedience is the key to unlock God's blessings.
Obedience means compliance with the laws.
Why choose obedience?
1. To receive blessings and to avoid curses - Dt.30: 19
2. Obedience to God is greater than offering sacrifices to God - 1 Sam.15: 22
3. We are all chosen for obedience to Jesus Christ-1 Pe.1: 2
Bible mentions the following types of obedience:
Undeviating obedience - Dt.28:14
Unreserved obedience - Jos.22: 2& 3
Complete obedience - Dt. 28: 1
Immediate obedience -Ps.18:44
Willing obedience - Isa. 1: 19
Obedience in absence - Php. 2:12
Our obedience can come from and result in two opposite things depending on whether we obey Christ or Flesh.
Obedience can come from fear or faith (Rom.1:5)
Obedience can lead us to sin or righteousness (Rom.6: 16)
What is the cause of our obedience? Fear or Faith
What is the result of our obedience? Sins or righteousness
Let us choose the right cause and the right result of our obedience
