Isaiah 30:21, 23 NKJV
“Your ears shall hear a word behind you, saying, “This is the way, walk in it,” Whenever you turn to the right hand Or whenever you turn to the left. Then He will give the rain for your seed With which you sow the ground, And bread of the increase of the earth; It will be fat and plentiful. In that day your cattle will feed In large pastures.”

One of the infallible promises of God is the gift of the Holy Spirit. It is given to those who believe in Jesus Christ-the Savior. According to Prophet Isaiah, “Your ears shall hear a word behind you, saying, “This is the way, walk in it,” Whenever you turn to the right hand Or whenever you turn to the left.”(Isaiah 30:21).  The blessings of God, if pursued properly, increases a man and his possessions. The blessings of God are revealed once you have passed His test. The test is your obedience, and the keyword is focus!

 
Psalm 32:8 put it this way, “I will instruct you and teach you in the way which you shall go: I will guide you with mine eye.” When God promises to guide us, He demands that we are humble and obedient.  If we develop a pompous attitude, God will withhold his leadership. He does not intend for anyone of us to be subjected to pain, loss, sickness, bondage, destruction, or fear. His will for us is good, perfect and hopeful. When we mis-appropriate our instructions, we walk into the unknown; a challenge that will require God to bring us out! For example, poverty, loss of lives and some diseases are not from God, but came by due to man’s invention of wickedness.
 
“This book of the law shall not depart out of your mouth, but you shall meditate therein day and night, that you may observe to do according to all that is written there: for then you shall make your way prosperous, and then you shall have good success.” (Joshua 1:8) Your prosperity and success depends on your ability to imitate God, His word and obedience to His Holy Spirit. Sometime, we do not find it socially correct to share the gospel with others. Oh, the environment is not right! When will it be right for you? The key “IF”  means that which depends on your ability! What are you going to do?
 
Friends, as long as this journey is, I have observed that all that walked with Jesus with loyalty, truth, faith, obedience, etc… Are joint heirs with Him. They not only were blessed, but also conquered! Amen. To stand on top, you have to identify with the one who conquered all obstacles… Jesus Christ our Savior. If you start listening today, you will have changes tomorrow! Our God is a refiner’s fire, and a launder soap. He can only refine and wash those who work for and walk with Him. There is no short-cut. God bless you in Jesus Name.

    Thank you for enlightening me on the benefits of obedience. I had the same questions about God’s blessings, but now I can see that changing my ways will bring me the Lord’s favor. Thanks again!
