Your Word for 16 April 2024

Colossians 1:13
‘He has rescued us from the kingdom of darkness and transferred us into the Kingdom of His dear Son.’

God wants to bless us. That is God’s heart towards us. Belonging to God should bring blessing on our lives. The blessing that God wants us to experience is really God’s favour towards us. You and I were meant to share in the blessings that God planned for His people. But is there something that we can do to put ourselves in line to receive and enjoy these blessings? I believe there is and we are going to look at this.

Obedience is the key to receiving and enjoying the blessings that God has in-store for us. Obedience is a readiness to respond to and do what we may sense God is telling us to do. Obedience is important to God.

1 Samuel 15:22 Obedience is far better than sacrifice.

Here is the promise of blessing:

Deuteronomy 28:1-2 If you fully obey the LORD your God and carefully follow all His commands I give you today, the LORD your God will set you high above all the nations on earth. All these blessings will come upon you and accompany you if you obey the LORD your God.

There are a few key words we need to take note of: 1. IF! 2. ‘Fully obey’, 3. ‘Carefully follow’. This calls for a heart attitude, where we determine that we will obey God.
