PROSPERITY THROUGH OBEDIENCE

“Now it shall come to pass, if you diligently obey the voice of the Lord your God, to observe carefully all His commandments which I command you today, that the Lord your God will set you high above all nations of the earth. And all these blessings shall come upon you and overtake you, because you obey the voice of the Lord your God: “Blessed shall you be in the city, and blessed shall you be in the country. “Blessed shall be the fruit of your body, the produce of your ground and the increase of your herds, the increase of your cattle and the offspring of your flocks. “Blessed shall be your basket and your kneading bowl. “Blessed shall you be when you come in, and blessed shall you be when you go out. “The Lord; will cause your enemies who rise against you to be defeated before your face; they shall come out against you one way and flee before you seven ways. “The Lord will command the blessing on you in your storehouses and in all to which you set your hand, and He will bless you in the land which the Lord your God is giving you. “The Lord will establish you as a holy people to Himself, just as He has sworn to you, if you keep the commandments of the Lord your God and walk in His ways. Then all peoples of the earth shall see that you are called by the name of the Lord , and they shall be afraid of you. And the Lord will grant you plenty of goods, in the fruit of your body, in the increase of your livestock, and in the produce of your ground, in the land of which the Lord swore to your fathers to give you. The Lord will open to you His good treasure, the heavens, to give the rain to your land in its season, and to bless all the work of your hand. You shall lend to many nations, but you shall not borrow. And the Lord will make you the head and not the tail; you shall be above only, and not be beneath, if you heed the commandments of the Lord your God, which I command you today, and are careful to observe them. So you shall not turn aside from any of the words which I command you this day, to the right or the left, to go after other gods to serve them.
{Deuteronomy 28:1-14 }

REMEMBER :
“And you shall remember the Lord your God, for it is He who gives you power to get wealth, that He may establish His covenant which He swore to your fathers, as it is this day.[Deuteronomy 8:18]

NEXT:
My son, do not forget my law, But let your heart keep my commands; For length of days and long life And peace they will add to you. Let not mercy and truth forsake you; Bind them around your neck, Write them on the tablet of your heart, And so find favor and high esteem In the sight of God and man. Trust in the Lord with all your heart, And lean not on your own understanding; In all your ways acknowledge Him, And He shall direct your paths. Do not be wise in your own eyes; Fear the Lord and depart from evil. It will be health to your flesh, And strength to your bones. Honor the Lord with your possessions, And with the firstfruits of all your increase; So your barns will be filled with plenty, And your vats will overflow with new wine.[Proverbs 3:1-10]

FINALLY:
If they obey and serve Him, They shall spend their days in prosperity, And their years in pleasures. But if they do not obey, They shall perish by the sword, And they shall die without knowledge.
[Job 36:11-12 ]

KNOWING GODS WILL

To know Gods will, you must first know Him; to know Him, you must know His word, and follow the word, which is His only begotten son Jesus Christ, who came to introduce us to the true, and living God (John 1:1-14). ‘For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten son’ (John 3:16-17), so now we know, that it’s not Gods will for anyone to perish, but for all of us to have eternal life.

To truly know Gods will, there are certain criteria, we must follow: we must accept the gift of His son Jesus Christ(John 14:6), we need to confess our sins, and ask for forgiveness(repentance)(1 John 1:9,Proverbs 28:13), we must seek Him, and His righteousness first (Matthew 6:33).

To be righteous, you must be in right standing with God (Romans 8:10,2 Corinthians 5:21). To be in right standing with God, you must deny yourself, obey His commands and will. You see folks to know God’s will you must know Him, and the power of His might (Psalm 46:8-10). In all your ways, you must acknowledge Him, and He will direct your path(Proverbs 3:6), we know His will when we study His word, ‘study to show yourself approved unto God’ (2 timothy 2:15), we know His will through prayers, ‘confess our faults, and pray for each other, that we may be healed, the effectual fervent prayer of the righteous person availeth much'(James 5:16). ‘For I know the plans I have for you’, says the Lord,’plans to prosper you, and not to hurt you, plans to give you hope, and a future.Then you will call upon me,and go pray to me, and I will listen to you, you will seek me, and find me, when you search for me with all your heart, I will be found by you’, says the Lord,’and will bring you back from captivity’..(Jeremiah 29:11-14).

For the eyes of the Lord are over the righteous, and His ears are open, unto their prayers: but the face of the Lord is against them that do evil (1 Peter 3:12). Friends you must trust in the Lord with all your hearts ,and never, ever rely on your own understanding, or your friends (Proverbs 3:5-6). This is the only way you will prove, what is that good, acceptable, and perfect will of God (Romans 12:2). Friends if you seek Him, pray, fast, repent daily, stay in righteousness, meditate on His word, cast down every knowledge, and thought that is not of God, or in His word (the Holy Bible), you will know Gods will, and His plans for you.
