Every Christian wants the blessings of God. That seems to be a no-brainer. And God wants you to have them as well.  Here is what He says about it in Isaiah 1:16-19:
16  Wash you, make you clean; put away the evil of your doings from before mine eyes; cease to do evil;
17  Learn to do well; seek judgment, relieve the oppressed, judge the fatherless, plead for the widow.
18  Come now, and let us reason together, saith the LORD: though your sins be as scarlet, they shall be as white as snow; though they be red like crimson, they shall be as wool.
19  If ye be willing and obedient, ye shall eat the good of the land:

I assume you want to eat the good of the land?  Then I would also assume you are willing.  So the question must be, ARE YOU OBEDIENT?  Now it is also written in Deuteronomy 28:1-2,

1   And it shall come to pass, if thou shalt hearken diligently unto the voice of the LORD thy God, to observe and to do all his commandments which I command thee this day, that the LORD thy God will set thee on high above all nations of the earth:
2  And all these blessings shall come on thee, and overtake thee, if thou shalt hearken unto the voice of the LORD thy God.

You see, even though we are in the age of grace, God still requires our love and obedience.  Surely you don’t think you’re going to live any old way you want to, doing your own thing regardless of what God requires, and still have His blessings, do you?  Well, apparently, many people think so by the way they live.  And yet, they are the first to accuse God of not keeping His Word to bless them, can you imagine that?

I’d like to ask you to consider every aspect of your life today. Due to wanting to make sure YOU know what Deuteronomy 28:1-14 says, I’m not going to print it out here.  You have a Bible, or at least you should have, read the promises for yourself.  And go on and read the rest of the chapter while you’re at it.  Verses 15 through 68 tells of the curses for disobedience.  Now if you see your life reflects verses 1 through 14, GOOD!  But if you see you’re not really experiencing those verses in your life, and it seems to be more like verses 15-68, then you’d better get serious about getting right with Jesus and staying right.  We don’t know how much more time we have before He returns, but we know for sure every day is one day closer.  And none of us know when OUR “expiration date” will come up either.

So what I’m saying here is, if you are willing and obedient, you will eat the good of the land, just like the LORD said in Isaiah 1:19.  If you’re only WILLING, well……good luck with that.  God is certainly good for His every promise. If YOU are obedient, you will have His blessings, and your life will be like Deuteronomy 28:1-14.  And if not, well, the rest of the chapter is for you.  God is always good, and the devil is always bad, and they never change places.  So good will chase you down and overtake you if you are diligent to hearken unto the voice of the LORD.  It’s really a matter of choice on your part: do you really want God’s blessings, or not?  His Word is clear, and even a child can understand His instructions.  Sure, I know the devil is always bad, and he is always laying traps for God’s children.  It is written in Psalm 34:19, Many are the afflictions of the righteous: but the LORD delivereth him out of them all.

How many afflictions and trials will the LORD deliver you from? ALL OF THEM, IF you are willing and obedient.  Notice the Bible says IF.  You can’t leave that part out, even though it’s only two letters.  In fact, that’s one of the biggest conditions to any promise in the Bible.  You have a part, and God has a part.  He will do HIS part.  Will you do YOURS?
