Deuteronomy 28:1 “Now it shall come to pass, if you diligently obey the voice of the Lord your God, to observe carefully all His commandments which I command you today, that the Lord your God will set you high above all nations of the earth.”
God’s desire is to bless His children with the goodness of life in every form. Jesus attested to this in John 10:10 where He stated that the devils mission is to steal, kill and destroy, but He came that we may have life (the good life) more abundantly. God has made every provision for you and I to live the best life in Christ Jesus. He has blessed us with every spiritual blessing in Christ (Eph.1:30). I have met many people, and I myself have gone through experiences where it has looked nothing like God’s promised blessing. What could have been wrong?
In my study of Scripture and growth, I have come to find that the answer is simply in my dedication to the word of God. God’s blessings have been made available, and it takes obedience, diligently adherence and commitment to divine instructions/principles to draw on the blessing manifestation. You may have a million dollars in the bank, but if you don’t go through the proper protocol of making a withdrawal, you are at loss, even though you may be in dire need.
To see the blessings manifest in your life, you must be diligent in finding out what God’s word says about various situations in your life. Meditate on it―think deeply on it, until it begins to speak to you. Make sure you get the principle, and if you apply it, it will definitely yield the promised result. Because one thing is sure, if you stick with the word, you will come back with a testimony!
Scriptures to Meditate: Josh.1:8, Matt.7:24-25, Ps.1:1-3, Jer.17:7-8, Heb.11:3
