Deuteronomy 28:1-12 “And it shall come to pass, if thou shalt hearken diligently unto the voice of the Lord thy God, to observe and do all his commandments which I command thee this day, that the Lord thy God will set thee on high above all nations of the earth: And all these blessings shall come on thee, and overtake thee, if thou shalt hearken unto the voice of the Lord thy God. Blessed shalt thou be in the city, and blessed shalt thou be in the field. Blessed shall be the fruit of thy body, and the fruit of thy ground, and the fruit of thy cattle, the increase of thy kine, and the flocks of thy sheep. Blessed shall be thy basket and thy store. Blessed shalt thou be when thou comest in, and blessed shalt thou be when thou goest out. The Lord shall cause thine enemies that rise up against thee to be smitten before thy face: they shall come out against thee one way, and free before thee seven ways. The Lord shall command the blessing upon thee in thy storehouses, and in all that thou settest thine hand unto; and he shall bless thee in the land which the Lord thy God giveth thee. The Lord shall establish thee a holy people unto himself, as he hath sworn unto thee, if thou shalt keep the commandments of the Lord thy God, and walk in his ways. And all people of the earth shall see that thou art called by the name of the Lord; and they shall be afraid of thee. And the Lord shall make thee plenteous in goods, in the fruit of thy body, and in the fruit of thy cattle, and in the fruit of thy ground, in the land which the Lord sware unto thy fathers to give thee. The Lord shall open unto thee his good treasure, the heaven to give the rain unto thy land in his season, and to bless all the work of thine hand: and thou shalt lend unto many nations, and thou shalt not borrow.”
It is wonderfully exhausting to read the bountiful contingent promises of the Lord in Deuteronomy 28. A nation is promised a multitude of blessings for hearkening diligently unto the voice of God. That nation will:
- Be set high above all nations
- Be overwhelmed by countless blessings
- Be blessed in her urban and in her rural areas
- Be blessed in her labor
- Be blessed in her resources and in her production
- Be blessed in her business
- Be protected from her enemies and successful over them
- Be blessed in her provision and in her prosperity
- Be blessed in her credibility and in her reputation
Every aspect of that nation will be blessed! It hearkens back to the success of America in times past when we hearkened diligently to Him and He opened unto us His good treasure.
PLEASE PRAY THAT AMERICA WOULD HEARKEN DILIGENTLY UNTO GOD ONCE AGAIN. His good treasure awaits us.
