Summary: Speaking the Blessings of God over your life
Spoken Blessings. Spoken is the past principle of speak. In adjective form. It means to express with the mouth, uttered or untold.
God has spoken blessings over our lives. He has used Apostles, Prophets, Pastors, Evangelists and teachers to speak blessings over our lives.
If we read his word that contains his promises and oracles. We should apply them precept upon precept. Then we too can speak the blessings over our lives.
Deuteronomy 28: 1-14starting @ verse 1 talks about if you full obey the Lord and carefully follow his commands I give you today,
The Lord was speaking through his servant Moses from Mount Ebal. God’s blessings comes with conditions. If. They are conditional. There is a price to pay. The word says carefully! We must carefully do this thing. We must not stray to the left or lean to the right. Walk the Walk and Talk the Talk.
Isaiah 1:19 says If you are willing and obedient you will eat the best of the land. See you You must be obedient!
What does it mean to be obedient? To be obedient means to be submissive to authority. To follow orders.
1 Samuel 15:22 says, Does the Lord delight in burnt offerings and sacrifices as much as in obeying the voice of the Lord? To obey is better than sacrifice, and to heed is better than the fat of rams. For rebellion is like the sin of divination, and arrogance like the evil of idolatry. Samuel told Saul because you have rejected the word of the Lord, he has rejected you as king!
Samuel did not tell him that he had rejected the word of man or of a religion. But that he had rejected the word of God.
The word here is talking about being obedient to God. Not to man. Not to woman. Not to a group. Not to an organization and not to a religion but to God!
Some of us have not a problem following earthly directions but when it comes to divine direction we fall short. We are on time for Sunday School. We don’t miss meetings or studies, we organize and plan with no problem. But when it comes to obeying God in the privacy of our homes and in the secret things we have a form of Godliness but denying the power thereof. Just religious. But the Word says in order to be blessed we must be obedient to God first who is the author and finisher of our faith!
Stop crying out that you wan to blessed if you don’t want to be obedient!!!!
If we be obedient the Lord will bless us as Deuteronomy 28:1 says!
Turn to Deuteronomy 26:19. It reads he has declared that he will set you in praise, fame and honor high above all the nations he has made and that you will be a people holy to the Lord your God, as he promised.
God wants to exalt us! I feel like Jabez! 1 Chronicles 4:10 says, Jabez cried out to the God of Israel. Oh! That you would bless me and enlarge my territory! Let your hand be with me, and keep me from harm so that I will be free from pain! And God granted his request!
Some of us need to cry out to God and stop being so cute and deep! It is ok to cry out in prayer. It is ok to praise God! Stop worrying bout who is looking and whether they are going to think you did something or that something is wrong. When you get in a 911 situation. You will cry out to God bless me! It’s me O’lord standing in the need of prayer! You will be planted like a tree by the river of water! I shall not be moved! I will not be move until you bless me!!!
Jabez did like Jacob. Jacob was a most perseverant man in the Bible. In Genesis 32:24-28, Jacob said, “I will not let you go until bless me!
Dueteronomy 28:3 says, you will be blessed in the city and blessed in the field. Jacob was in the desert when he got his blessing. He wasn’t always blessed. But when he received the blessing he had a name change to Israel. See God will change your name. You might have been operating under the alias Jacob in disobedience but when you get the blessing God will call you Israel. A chosen people.
Philippians 4:19 says- “And my God shall supply all your needs according to his riches in glory by Christ Jesus.
God wants you to prosper. The devil wants you to operate in disobedience and not be blessed. John 1:10 says, “The thief does not come except to steal, and to kill, and to destroy. I have come that they may have life, and that they may have it more abundantly.
