And all these blessings shall come upon you and overtake you, because you obey the voice of the LORD your God.
The Lord listed the blessings that would overtake the children of Israel if they would only obey His commands. Everything that He promised to His chosen people has now come to us through the Cross of Christ.
The word “overtake” means to flood our lives – much like a tidal wave sweeping away a child’s sandcastle. We will be helpless against the overwhelming outpouring of His blessings!
Deuteronomy 28 spells out the many blessings He promises. We will be blessed in the city and the country. Wherever we go, He will pour out His favor.
We will be blessed in the fruit of our body – our children who are gifts from the Lord. We will be blessed in our basket and store; we will have more than enough in our finances. We will loan to others but have no need to borrow ourselves. If enemies come against us from one direction, they will flee in seven directions – scattered like straw in the wind!
Whatever we put our hand to, He will bless. Whether we are a salesman or a scientist, God will prosper the work we do. We will be the head and not the tail – always coming out on top! Others will see that we belong to the Lord and will stand in awe of our generous Father.
May the Lord bless you and keep you. May the Lord make His face to shine upon you and be gracious unto you and give you His peace. With complete confidence in the God Who promised, pronounce this truth over your life: I am born to be blessed!
