GOD WANTS TO PROSPER US GIVING US ENOUGH AND TO SPARE!
Deuteronomy 28:5 “Blessed shall be your basket and your kneading bowl [store].”
- Our basket and our store speaks of our provisions and our resources.
- God is obviously interested in supplying our needs.
- This is clearly stated by the apostle Paul:
Philippians 4:19: “And my God shall supply all your need according to His riches in glory by Christ Jesus.”
- God wants us to have enough so that we can share with others!
2 Corinthians 9:8 “And God is able to make all grace abound toward you, that you, always having all sufficiency in all things, have an abundance for every good work.”
Deuteronomy 28:8 and 11 shed even further light on this.
Verse 8 “The LORD will command the blessing on you in your storehouses … ”
Verse 11 “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.”
When God commands His blessing on our storehouses and makes us plenteous in goods, then we certainly will have enough and to spare.
GOD WANTS TO BLESS US IN OUR TRAVELS!
GOD WANTS TO BLESS US WITH VICTORY OVER OUR ENEMIES!
Verse 7 “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.
To Israel, their enemies were the tribes or nations around them, that threatened their security, national integrity and existence.
By God’s grace we are able to overcome our greatest enemies:
- THE WORLD by setting our affections on things above!
Colossians 3:1-3 If then you were raised with Christ, seek those things which are above, where Christ is, sitting at the right hand of God. Set your mind on things above, not on things on the earth. For you died, and your life is hidden with Christ in God.
- THE FLESH by walking in the Spirit!
Galatians 5:16 I say then: Walk in the Spirit, and you shall not fulfill the lust of the flesh.
- THE DEVIL, or any demons, by resisting them.
James 4:7 Therefore submit to God. Resist the devil and he will flee from you.
GOD WANTS TO BLESS ALL WE SET OUR HANDS TO DO!
GOD WANTS TO BLESS US BY ESTABLISHING US AS HIS HOLY PEOPLE!
1 Peter 2:9 explains it to us from a New Testament perspective.
“But you [Christians] are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, His own special people, that you may proclaim the praises of Him who called you out of darkness into His marvelous light;”
