Sometimes We Need To Re-Prioritize

Daily God Walk for Friday, February 24, 2012

If you fully obey the Lord your God and carefully follow all his commands… The Lord will send a blessing on your barns and on everything you put your hand to. The Lord your God will bless you in the land he is giving you.                  – Deuteronomy 28:1-8

The promise of blessing in this passage begins with the caution, “If you fully obey the Lord your God.” We all want God’s blessing, but we are not as anxious to follow his commands.

It is popular today for preachers to talk about sowing seeds (into their ministry of course) to reap a bountiful harvest. It is not popular to preach that these blessings are promised only to those who live in obedience of God’s will.

Not every time we are in a financial strait is it related to obedience, but it does happen often enough that we should pay attention to our lifestyle. If we find ourselves unable to make the monthly payments on our two cars, boat, sports club, big screen TV and assorted other toys, we may need to evaluate our priorities.

On the other hand there is the promise of prosperity and continued blessing to those who follow the Lord whole heartedly.

Our challenge is to serve without expecting a reward and receive his blessing without feeling a sense of entitlement.

Prayer: Lord, I didn’t think I was being less than committed to your will, but if I have had my priorities mixed up, grant me the will to surrender all of these things to you and trust you for the outcome. I will trust you as I serve you. In the Name of Jesus, Amen.
