Blessing of Obedience

Do you listen to what you are told or does it go in one ear and out the other?

Are you obedient in your listening?

We are not just supposed to be hearers of the word, but doers of the word.

We are to be obedient even if we do not think that what was said is right or wrong.

Whatever God has said is always right, whether we have chosen to believe it or not. This includes listening as well. There are blessings in obedience.

"If you listen obediently to the voice of the Lord your God, being watchful to do all His commandments which I command you this day, the Lord your God will set you high above all the nations of the earth.

And all these blessings shall come upon you and overtake you if you heed the Voice of the Lord your God.

Blessed shall you be in the city and blessed shall you be in the field.

Blessed shall be the fruit of your body and the fruit of your ground and the fruit of your beasts, the increase of your cattle and the young of your flock.

Blessed shall be your basket and your kneading trough.

Blessed shall you be when you come in and blessed shall you be when you go out.

The Lord shall cause your enemies who rise up against you to be defeated before your face; that they shall come out against you one way and flee before you seven ways.

The Lord shall command the blessings upon you in your storehouse and in all that you undertake. And He will bless you in the land which the Lord your God gives you.

The Lord will establish you as a people holy to Himself as He has sworn to you, if you keep the commandments of the Lord your God and walk in His ways. (see also I peter 5:10)

And all the people of the earth shall see that you are called by the name (and in the presence of) the Lord and they shall be afraid of you.

And the Lord make you a surplus of prosperity, through the fruit of you body, of your livestock, and of your ground, in the land which the Lord swore to your fathers to give you.

The Lord shall open to you His good treasury, the heavens, to give the rain of your land in its season and to bless all the work of your hands; and you shall lend to many nations, but you shall not borrow.

And the Lord shall make you the head, and not the tail; and you shall be above only, and you shall not be beneath, if you heed these commandments of the Lord your God which I command you this day and are watchful to do them." Deuteronomy 28:1-14 Amplified Bible

God will lavish you with good things: children from your womb, offsping from your animals: crops from your land and that land promised your ancestors that He would give you.

God is a good God and wants us to prosper. We shall prosper as we are obedient to Him.

Obedience is a sacrifice, a great sacrifice, but it is all worth it in the end.

There is no better a sacrifice than obedience to your Lord!
