From this biblical portion there are multiple blessings to learn and to reclaim, of course with their respective conditions to fulfill.
I. COMMANDMENT AND BLESSING
a) "Befriend with Him now and you will have peace and because of this it will be well with you…" Since man fell he does not have peace with himself neither with his maker. Here is the reason he has a troubled life and much confusion in his soul.
b) "If you would return to the Omnipotent one you will be edified…” You do not have to think a lot to take your salvation or your reconciliation with God He personally asks you, stop suffering and return to Him. Today begins a new life, or a new relation with your God.
II. ALL THE BLESSINGS OF GOD HAVE A PRICE
a) The blessing of Abraham depended on his attitude: That he would take after he heard the voice of God. His latter generations would take the promises of the words by the Lord in Genesis: to bless, blessing and blessed. The blessings would delay in arriving to Abraham and his descendants as much as they delayed in obeying the instructions of God.
b) The price of the blessings:
o The price to give fruit and never to be wilting Psalms 1
o The order of the blessings is in Matt 6:33
o The duty of the husband to receive the blessings his prayers 1Peter 3:7
o The duty of the women to receive her blessings 1Peter 3:1-5
o The duty of the children for receive their blessings Ephesians 6:1-2
o The price of our financial prosperity Malachi 3:10-12
