S. O. A. P.
Here’s Your 90 second AM Devotional!
Blessed are all who fear the Lord, who walk in obedience to him. You will eat the fruit of your labor; blessings and prosperity will be yours.
This passage is loaded with a pledge from Jesus to you and me. However, like always, God’s promises are conditional. All through Scripture we see the Lord saying to His people, “If you will do this, then I’ll do this.” In this case the Lord says, “I’ll bless you and prosper you if you will respect and fully obey Me with all of your heart everyday.”
Who wouldn’t rather be blessed instead of broken, and who wouldn’t rather have all their needs met instead of begging for help? As a parent, there was never a second in my life when I hoped my children would live beggarly lives or be broken as a result of poor choices. NEVER!! God is so much more a Loving and Doting Father than I ever hoped to be. Yet God tells us there are conditions. Those conditions include respecting and obeying God fully, every day, in order to be Blessed and Prospered. So in the final analysis, our Blessing and our Prosperity is linked to our HEART. God always asks … “What will YOUR choice be?” For me, it will always be … “Blessings and Prosperity.” And yes, I know the conditions!
You know my choice this AM. Please give me strength to keep my end of the deal up. Love You! Amen
