The Blessings of Obedience

The Blessings of Obedience
Deuteronomy 28:1-14
28 “If you obey the LORD your God and faithfully keep all his commands that I am giving you today, he will make you greater than any other nation on earth. 2 Obey the LORD your God and all these blessings will be yours:
3 “The LORD will bless your towns and your fields.
4 “The LORD will bless you with many children, with abundant crops, and with many cattle and sheep.
5 “The LORD will bless your grain crops and the food you prepare from them.
6 “The LORD will bless everything you do.
7 “The LORD will defeat your enemies when they attack you. They will attack from one direction, but they will run from you in all directions.
8 “The LORD your God will bless your work and fill your barns with grain. He will bless you in the land that he is giving you.
9 “If you obey the LORD your God and do everything he commands, he will make you his own people, as he has promised. 10 Then all the peoples on earth will see that the LORD has chosen you to be his own people, and they will be afraid of you. 11 The LORD will give you many children, many cattle, and abundant crops in the land that he promised your ancestors to give you. 12 He will send rain in season from his rich storehouse in the sky and bless all your work, so that you will lend to many nations, but you will not have to borrow from any. 13 The LORD your God will make you the leader among the nations and not a follower; you will always prosper and never fail if you obey faithfully all his commands that I am giving you today. 14 But you must never disobey them in any way, or worship and serve other gods.
