Obey God And Be Blessed

by Hazel Straub

Listen, trust and obey the voice of the Lord. As Americans, we pride ourselves in independence, but God wants us dependent on him. He has the best blessings for us, when we obey his instructions. Many times, what he is asking of us appears very difficult, so we delay our obedience. This is rebellion and opens the door to negative consequences.

When we do what God says, he gives us blessings beyond our expectations. Problems that seemed without solution, resolve, and blessings pursue and overtake us. Daddy God wants us to have the best, including favor that comes from obeying him because he is faithful and loves us. We show our love of him and faith in him, by obeying his voice.

If you will listen diligently to the voice of the Lord your God, being watchful to do all His commandments which I command you this day, the Lord your God will set you high above all the nations of the earth. And all these blessings shall come upon you and overtake you if you heed the voice of the Lord your God. Blessed shall you be in the city and blessed shall you be in the field. Blessed shall be the fruit of your body and the fruit of your ground and the fruit of your beasts, the increase of your cattle and the young of your flock. Blessed shall be your basket and your kneading trough. Blessed shall you be when you come in and blessed shall you be when you go out. (Deuteronomy 28:1-6 AMPC)

  1. Great Post, Hazel, thanks.


  2. There are times I would like to sleep, especially when I got to bed late but when He calls and wakes me up at 1AM, 2AM or 3AM. I get up. I don’t want to miss a thing from Him and I know He will bless me with getting the rest when I need it. Being obedient to the Lord is very important to me. There use to be a commercial about an investment firm, when he spoke everyone would listen. Well… this is how I believe. When God speaks I always want to be listening and be obedient to Him.


    • Praise God for obedience to his voice, JL!


  3. A very fine sermon with an inspiring quote from the Old Testament this Sunday morning. May God continue to bless you with your mission!


  4. Amen…Thank You, Lord!


  5. Amen! Definitely obedience brings the blessings. Nothing worse that walking the road of regrets. Thanks for this reminder.

    Thank you for posting.


    • Elizabeth, good to know that this post blessed you. Difficult times are hard but Jesus walks beside you and helps bear the burden of the day. You will come out of this as pure gold.
