March 15 – Overtaken with Blessings

So many blessings come from the Lord when we are obedient.  Some of the detailed blessings God offered to the Israelites were dependent on their obedience to Him.  “Now if you faithfully obey the Lord your God and are careful to follow all His commands I am giving you today, the Lord your God will put you far above all the nations of the earth. All these blessings will come and overtake you, because you obey the Lord your God: You will be blessed in the city and blessed in the country. Your descendants will be blessed, and your land’s produce, and the offspring of your livestock, including the young of your herds and the newborn of your flocks.”

I love the phrase, “All these blessings will come and overtake you.”  Think about it: to be overtaken with blessings!  And that is not all.  The Israelites will experience even more specific blessings if they remain faithfully obedient to the Lord, so read on!
