BLESSINGS FROM EVERYWHERE

Date: February 8

Category: Follow God

Leviticus 26:3-6, 9
"If you walk in My statutes and keep My commandments and do them, I will give you rain in due season, and the land shall yield her increase and the trees of the field yield their fruit. And your threshing [time] shall reach to the vintage and the vintage [time] shall reach to the sowing time, and you shall eat bread to the full and dwell in your land securely. I will give peace in the land; you shall lie down and none shall fill you with dread or make you afraid; and I will clear ferocious (wild) beasts out of the land, and no sword shall go through your land…For I will be leaning toward you with favor and regard for you, rendering you fruitful, multiplying you, and establishing and ratifying My covenant with you."

Slobodan & Ljiljana KrstevskiAccording to these verses, there are so many blessings that we can receive. But there are three things that you and I need to do before we can obtain these blessings. It says in verse 3, "If you walk in My statutes and keep My commandments and do them…" Walking in His statutes means living in accordance to His will, which we can find in the Word of God. It means living your life the way God wants you to live it.

The second thing we have to do is keep His commandments. Think about what you do when you keep a garden. You learn and understand what that garden needs in order to grow, and then you take good care of that garden. That's how we are to keep God's commandments. We are to read His word, understand His commandments and understand what are we to do in order to obey them.

The third requirement is to do those commandments. In other words, take what you have read and learned from the Word of God and practice it in your life. Do everything that God tells you to do and stay away from everything God tells you to stay away from.

Those are the preconditions for blessing to come to you from everywhere. Verse 4 says, "I will give you rain in due season, and the land shall yield her increase and the trees of the field yield their fruit." In other words, you will prosper. Your work will bring back fruit for you. Verse 5b says, "…you shall eat your bread to the full and dwell in your land securely." So you'll have enough food to eat and you'll have God's protection and security. But these blessings of provision come with hard work and diligence as well. Your blessing and your success depend on your work and your obedience to God. When you obey God, you create conditions for God to bless your work.

Verse 9a says, "For I will be leaning toward you with favor and regard for you…" God will look favorably towards us. He will give us success everywhere – in our relationships, our studies, our careers, in everything we do. God will multiply us and will establish and ratify His covenant with us, it says in the rest of verse 9. These are all the many blessings of God.

So if you want to be blessed from everywhere, then obey God. Walk and live in His statutes. Keep and do His commandments. But you have to also be diligent and work hard. When you do that, God will ensure that you receive His blessing from everywhere for every area of your life.
