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
We all want blessings right ? But how do we truly obtain them? Of course, it is easy to receive any kind of blessing. Blessings are described as Gods protection and favor. Oh, my my my ...that’s good. It’s a wonderful feeling to be favored by God, and to have favor with God and man is truly a blessing.
Favor is support, approval and just simply liking someone. We all long for this type of favor in our lives, but in a healthy way. Protection is really a huge blessing. Protection from danger seen and unseen can range from all sorts of circumstances, but to know you have protection or have been protected in your life is also a great blessing. We often limit blessings to material things and that’s fine. Because our material possessions are very well a blessing. When you get an upgraded car because your last vehicle was a hoopty, and you really just want to get to work and back home. Because you know you really need the income in order to keep a roof over your head and keep food on the table.
In these situations, yes those are grateful blessings and God knows your heart towards materialistic blessings. Trust that our God knows exactly what we need and when we need it ! It is extremely ok to be blessed and feel blessed. We should expect to be blessed. It is 224 bible verses about being blessed.
Walk in your blessings, unapologetically!
Here’s the thing ... I used to feel like it was a burden to be blessed ! That don’t make sense right ? How could anyone feel like being blessed is a burden? I’ll tell you why, I had a season in my life where God blessed me literally in every area of my life ! I’m talking about real favor! Mind-blowing favor. I can honestly say out of my whole life that was the best year by far. Life was good ! I was confessing that, but when PEOPLE wasn’t happy for me. And talked about me behind my back and to my face subliminally and made smart remarks about my attitude or the favor and blessings that was on my life. I begin to get overwhelmed because I wanted people to know I am humble, my heart is good, I’m thankful, and you too can obtain this favor. God is not a respecter of persons ! If he can make it happen for me, he can certainly make it happen for you too.
We’ll unfortunately no matter how hard I tried to get people to see it my way, they couldn’t. Have you ever been there ? I literally was trying to make people understand why I was blessed. I had to realize stop being a people pleaser for one ! That was first and foremost. But I was so overwhelmed because I was trying to justify to people why I was blessed. But my bible says according to proverbs 10:22 The blessing of the LORD makes a person rich, and he adds no sorrow with it.
No way, I declare I’m supposed to be happy in this thing! God didn’t bless me to then turn around and become overwhelmed by his mercy and favor. My advice to you is never get to this point and don’t fall for the bait of the enemy! Keep in mind I wanted to let everyone know the real reason for God’s favor in my life. I was so busy trying to give them my background story. Well I have been through this and that and let me explain what happened to me.
If you have done this, or currently doing this !
We don’t owe anyone any explanation, but God! I was trying to make people understand why God felt as though he wanted to bless me, his daughter. It’s because I have been through hard times and maybe God wanted to reward me for my testing, trials, and tribulations. While, that is true ! But it’s deeper than just that. Through my journey God showed me WHY He blessed me. You could be in a rough season or good one. Doesn’t really matter, but the reason why he unlocked those blessings in my life was through my obedience ! That’s the key right there. It’s simple right? The act of obedience. There are other ways I’m sure to unlock the blessings of God in your life. Our God is a very big God, and he is not limited. But the key is obedience! It may sound simple, but also sound quite hard !
Here's your blueprint...
Ways to be obedient is "to hear God's Word and act accordingly."
Obedience is defined as compliance with an order, request, or law or submission to another's authority.
Malachi 3:10 (NLT)
Bring all the tithes into the storehouse, so there will be enough food in my Temple. If you do,” says the Lord of Heaven’s Armies, “I will open the windows of heaven for you. I will pour out a blessing so great you won’t have enough room to take it in! Try it! Put me to the test!
Try it, try God at his word 📖
This message was going to be written completely different but as I began to write. Holy Spirit had other plans. I was going to discuss more about the act of obedience and how it brings about rewards and blessings. If you follow up with Luke 5:1:11 you see an act of obedience because I didn’t dig into obedience and don’t want to keep you reading for long. I usually provide you with a 3-minute read, but you should really consider following up with this blog page below to understand obedience always bring blessings.
Father God, thank you for your promises, thank you for your blessings. Thank you, for your protection and your favor.

Thank you for providing the key! Last, but not least ! Lord, we certainly thank you for obedience and help us to do your will and obey your commands.
