Blessings for Obedience
28 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. 2 All these blessings will come on you and accompany you if you obey the Lord your God:
3 You will be blessed in the city and blessed in the country.
4 The fruit of your womb will be blessed, and the crops of your land and the young of your livestock—the calves of your herds and the lambs of your flocks.
5 Your basket and your kneading trough will be blessed.
6 You will be blessed when you come in and blessed when you go out.
7 The Lord will grant that the enemies who rise up against you will be defeated before you. They will come at you from one direction but flee from you in seven.
8 The Lord will send a blessing on your barns and on everything you put your hand to. The Lord your God will bless you in the land he is giving you.
9 The Lord will establish you as his holy people, as he promised you on oath, if you keep the commands of the Lord your God and walk in obedience to him. 10 Then all the peoples on earth will see that you are called by the name of the Lord, and they will fear you. 11 The Lord will grant you abundant prosperity—in the fruit of your womb, the young of your livestock and the crops of your ground—in the land he swore to your ancestors to give you.
12 The Lord will open the heavens, the storehouse of his bounty, to send rain on your land in season and to bless all the work of your hands. You will lend to many nations but will borrow from none. 13 The Lord will make you the head, not the tail. If you pay attention to the commands of the Lord your God that I give you this day and carefully follow them, you will always be at the top, never at the bottom.
Heavenly Father, I realize that I need Jesus Christ in my life. Thank You that You love me and accept me the way I am, right now. Although you hate and despise sin, You love sinners so much that You sent Your only Son, Jesus, to pay the price that I owed. God, The Bible says that all men have sinned and fallen short of the glory of God. I know that in my own life I have fallen way short of Your plan for me. Although the wages of sin are death, I receive salvation and eternal life as a free gift from you. I can do nothing to earn it.
I confess that I am a sinner, but I want to turn from serving myself, sin and the Devil. So I turn to you Jesus.
God, Your Word says that whoever will call on the name of the Lord Jesus Christ will be saved. I call on Jesus’ name right now. I say out loud with my mouth that Jesus is my Lord and I believe in my heart that God, You raised Him from the dead. I accept Your forgiveness and cleansing from all my sin. I receive the free gift of eternal life right now. I now invite You to come into my heart and life. I want to trust You Jesus, as Savior and follow You as Lord.
I am no longer a child of the devil, but now I am a child of God. Help me to understand that I am saved because of faith, not because of any good deeds or emotions. I have been made a new person because of Your Son, Jesus.
I thank You that You are now my Father. I thank You for this free gift of eternal life. I thank You that my sin and iniquities You will remember no more, and You have removed my sins as far as the East is from the West. I am a new creature (creation) in Christ Jesus. Old things are passed away. I have been born of the incorruptible seed of the word of God. I have been delivered from the power of darkness. I no longer have to walk in darkness; I can now walk in the light.
Father, thank You again for sending Jesus as my Savoir, and making me born again of the Spirit of God and washed by the precious blood of Jesus Christ.
In Jesus’ name I pray. Amen.
