"And it shall come to pass, if thou shalt hearken diligently unto the voice of the Lord thy God, to observe and to do all his commandments which I command thee this day, that the Lord thy God will set thee on high above all nations of the earth: And all these blessings shall come on thee, and overtake thee" (Deut. 28:1-2).
God promised Abraham that He would be his shield and his exceeding great reward (Gen. 15:1). No question about it, that promise caused Abraham to be extremely prosperous in every way and it will do the same for you, if you're a born-again child of God.
What is it like to be blessed in every way?
Deuteronomy 28:1-9 tells us. It lists that you can be blessed in the city, in the field, in the fruit of your body, the fruit of your ground, the fruit of your cattle, the increase of your kind the flocks of your sheep…it says you shall be blessed when you come in and when you go out.
It says your enemies will be smitten before you, and on and on it goes. You'll just be blessed in every area, from your job to your family to your possessions to your everyday comings and goings.
Does all that sound too good to be true? Well, it's not. That's the blessing Jesus bought for you on the cross. And it will begin to operate in your life IF you'll "hearken unto the voice of the Lord your God " (meditate on, and obey His Word).
Until you act on His Word, the curse will run wild in your life. You can't get away from it, it is the spirit of the god of this world. BUT, when you come to a place that your willing to be obedient to God's immovable, unchangeable, everlasting, settled in Heaven forever Word, then the blessings of Deuteronomy 28 will come upon you and OVERTAKE you.
Just like the curse once overtook you, now the blessings of God will overtake you.
Follow the instructions in Deuteronomy 28…hearken diligently unto the voice of the Lord, observe His commandments…and all these blessings will overtake you.
Speak the Word: I hearken diligently to the voice of the Lord and obey all His commandments. All of His blessings come on me and overtake me! (Deut. 28:1-2)
