Unmatched Blessings

Deuteronomy 28:1-14
Rev. James Wong

1. The Promise of Blessings In Obedience
“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. 2 All these blessings will come upon you and accompany you if you obey the Lord your God:” ~Deuteronomy 28:1-2 (NIV)

2. The Details of the Blessings (Deut 28:3-7 NIV)

God will bless you wherever you live
3 You will be blessed in the city and blessed in the country.

God will bless your family and business
4 The fruit of your womb will be blessed, and the crops of your land and the young of your livestock — the calves of your herds and the lambs of your flocks.

God will bless your finance
5 Your basket and your kneading trough will be blessed.

God will bless you with his protection
6 You will be blessed when you come in and blessed when you go out.
7 The Lord will grant that the enemies who rise up against you will be defeated before you. They will come at you from one direction but flee from you in seven.

3. Our spiritual blessing in Christ
3 Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who has blessed us in the heavenly realms with every spiritual blessing in Christ. 4 For he chose us in him before the creation of the world to be holy and blameless in his sight. In love 5 he predestined us to be adopted as his sons through Jesus Christ, in accordance with his pleasure and will— ~Ephesians 1:3-5 (NIV)

4. Be thankful for your blessings
Don’t throw away your life just because some circumstances in life turn out to be unfavorable. Count your blessings and move on.

16 Be joyful always; 17 pray continually; 18 give thanks in all circumstances, for this is God's will for you in Christ Jesus. ~1 Thess 5:16-18 (NIV)
