Good afternoon y’all. Today we are studying Leviticus 27.
In this chapter God highlights the blessings when we obey His commands; and the curses when we do not. I pray we will always obey God and not disobey.
In verses 3-13, God stresses again that if we obey him and follow His decrees we will live a successful and prosperous life.
“If you follow my decrees and are careful to obey my commands, I will send you the seasonal rains. The land will then yield its crops, and the trees of the field will produce their fruit. Your threshing season will overlap with the grape harvest, and your grape harvest will overlap with the season of planting grain. You will eat your fill and live securely in your own land. “I will give you peace in the land, and you will be able to sleep with no cause for fear. I will rid the land of wild animals and keep your enemies out of your land. In fact, you will chase down your enemies and slaughter them with your swords. Five of you will chase a hundred, and a hundred of you will chase ten thousand! All your enemies will fall beneath your sword. “I will look favorably upon you, making you fertile and multiplying your people. And I will fulfill my covenant with you. You will have such a surplus of crops that you will need to clear out the old grain to make room for the new harvest! I will live among you, and I will not despise you. I will walk among you; I will be your God, and you will be my people. I am the lord your God, who brought you out of the land of Egypt so you would no longer be their slaves. I broke the yoke of slavery from your neck so you can walk with your heads held high. (LEV.26.3-13.NLT)
Some of the benefits of obedience that He promised us are:
– Abundant rain
– Abundant provision
– Overflowing harvest
– Deliverance from enemies
– Victory over enemies
– Fulfilment of covenant
– God’s personal presence
So then how do we find out what God’s commands are and how do we ensure we obey them :
1) Prayer – we need to spend time in prayer. Prayer allows us communicate with God. God talks to us and we respond.
2) Studying the word – this is very key. God is His word. The only way we can know what pleases Him is by studying His word.
3) Fellowship with others: Don’t neglect the company of others (of like faith). We can encourage each other and grow up together.
I pray God gives us the grace to be obedient at all times.
