When we walk under the obedience of the Lord, we can receive blessings because God sees your faithfulness and your sacrifice, but something that we must be very clear about is that these blessings come not because we are worthy of them, rather because God is good and merciful.
That is why below we bring you Seven blessings that are the result of obedience.
Seven blessings from God for those who obey him
And all these blessings shall come on thee, and overtake thee, if thou shalt hearken unto the voice of the Lord thy God.
Obedience is something that we must have before our God, obeying His Word, listening to His voice, because when we do what He commands us and walk under His law, then we are being obedient.
1. Blessed are you in the city
Blessed shalt thou be in the city, and blessed shalt thou be in the field.
Despite the people being so impatient with God, Moses tells them of the Lord’s promises to them, telling them that they will be blessed in the city and in the field. This would be fulfilled if they were obedient before God.
2. Blessed is the fruit of your womb
Blessed shall be the fruit of thy body, and the fruit of thy ground, and the fruit of thy cattle, the increase of thy kine, and the flocks of thy sheep.
For God nothing is impossible, so the promises of the Lord never stop because He is God and what He promises He fulfills. If the people do what God commands them, then the wombs of their women will be blessed and they will be able to conceive children, everything they produce, the fruit of the land, the beasts, the herds, everything will be multiplied. These are the faithful blessings of the Lord.
3. Blessed shall be your basket and your trough
Blessed shall be thy basket and thy store.
We can see that when the people left Egypt, Moses giving him the word of the Lord, these promises that they would be taken care of in the middle of the desert, because the Lord fulfilled it and we could even see that not even food was lacking, they were covered by a pillar of fire in the night to enlighten them, and a cloud by day to guide them on the way, in addition, the promise that their tools to produce bread would be blessed.
4. Blessed will you be when you come in, and blessed when you go out
Blessed shalt thou be when thou comest in, and blessed shalt thou be when thou goest out.
The people of Israel used to be very afraid to continue on their way, but sometimes they had certain difficulties because they did not hear the voice of the Lord, so they had to hear the voice of God through that leader named Moses, saying that God would take care of them and would bless them in their coming and going.
5. The Lord will defeat your enemies who rise up against you
The Lord shall cause thine enemies that rise up against thee to be smitten before thy face: they shall come out against thee one way, and flee before thee seven ways.
The trust that this leader had was very strong, in addition to the obedience that accompanied him, since this man did everything that God commanded him, but on the other hand he had a people who distrusted the words of the Almighty God, despite that God knew well with the people he was dealing with, that is why he tells them that He would defeat all the enemies that rose up against them.
6. The Lord will send his blessing on your barns
The Lord shall command the blessing upon thee in thy storehouses, and in all that thou settest thine hand unto; and he shall bless thee in the land which the Lord thy God giveth thee.
Your barns will be greatly blessed, and above all that where you put your hands. It was remarkable that the voice of God followed with his people, wherever they moved, it was under the divine cover of God, He was his shield and iron wall. Everything that collided with them was destroyed. That is why all these blessings would come to their lives if they would walk in obedience and walk upright before the Lord.
7. The Lord will confirm you as his holy people
The Lord shall establish thee an holy people unto himself, as he hath sworn unto thee, if thou shalt keep the commandments of the Lord thy God, and walk in his ways.
One of the greatest blessings that God promised His people was to be confirmed as the Holy People of God, yes, as long as they walked straight on the path of truth. Do you want to be part of this? Obey God and walk according to his Holy Will.
