“All these blessings will come on you and accompany you if you obey the Lord your God:” Deuteronomy 28: 2 (NIV)
“You will be blessed when you come in and blessed when you go out.” Deuteronomy 28: 6 (NIV)
Our Lord has promised to bless those who obey Him. We are reminded of this in the verses for today. These are words Moses spoke to the Children of Israel near the end of his life. He was reminding them of the importance of obedience to God and we today can benefit from the truth of these words. First we are told that there are blessings that come on us and accompany us if we are obedient to the Lord our God. The passage lists many specific blessings promised by God. We focus on one in verse 6 which tells us that if we obey the Lord He will be blessing us wherever we are. Wherever we go the blessings will accompany us. Whether we go far or only a short distance, God has promised to be the source of our blessings if we obey what He teaches us in His Word.
