The Blessing In Obedience
Remember growing up and you would have to listen to what your parents said, even if you thought that they didn't know what they were talking about because they were old fashion. We believed they didn't know what we were going through because things were different than when they grew up. What we found out later was they knew exactly what they were talking about, and they knew how things would end up, and we found ourselves saying,"I should of listened to my mother." The Scripture reminds us that, God has a storehouse of blessings just waiting for us. All we have to do to receive the blessings of The Lord is to listen to the things He tells us to do or not do, say or not say. I encourage you to take time and listen to The Lord today, and know He wants to bless you. When you listen to The Lord He promised you all these blessings shall come on you they shall overtake you. You don't want your bills, your problems, your job, or anything else to overtake you, but you do want the blessings of The Lord to overtake you. When you listen to God and do the things He says for you to do even though they may not make any sense to you right now especially in what you are going through, but there is no doubt that God will bless you. The blessings of God will come on you and when God blesses you, you are blessed. There is nothing to hard for God and He wants to bless you, your blessing is waiting for you, all you have to do is to listen to God and do what He says for your life and you will be blessed. I don't know about any of you I know I am going to listen to God today and everyday, and what He tells me doesn't have to make sense to me I am going to do what He tells me to do, because I want to be blessed and I need to be blessed. I have to be blessed because, "It's My Year To Get My Thing From My God!"
Lord as I follow your direction today let every blessing that you have for me overtake me and fill me with your goodness. In Jesus Name Amen.
