Isaiah 40:26 Look up into the heavens.Who created all the stars? He brings them out like an army, one after another, calling each by its name. Because of his great power and incomparable strength, not a single one is missing.
Psalm 33:6 The Lord merely spoke, and the heavens were created.He breathed the word, and all the stars were born.
Genesis 22:17 I will certainly bless you. I will multiply your descendants beyond number, like the stars in the sky and the sand on the seashore. Your descendants will conquer the cities of their enemies.
Psalm 136:7-9 Give thanks to him who made the heavenly lights—His faithful love endures forever. the sun to rule the day, His faithful love endures forever. and the moon and stars to rule the night. His faithful love endures forever.
Psalm 147:4-5 He counts the stars and calls them all by name. How great is our Lord! His power is absolute! His understanding is beyond comprehension!
Jeremiah 33:22 And as the stars of the sky cannot be counted and the sand on the seashore cannot be measured, so I will multiply the descendants of my servant David and the Levites who minister before me.”
Another Life Lesson for Ms. D on the farm. Just sitting on the porch one morning and a whole flock of blackbirds just flew in and landed right in front of me. They came from the trees, the sky, the ground. They were literally everywhere! I sat in awe watching. More and more, the grass kept filling up with more birds. And I’m thinking, “OK, this is kinda creepy, should I be freaked out right now?” But no, I didn’t freak out. It was like watching nature unfold before your very eyes. I wondered what it meant. I had no idea.
Here we are a day later. Finally Holy Spirit answered. I am so impatient. I am so used to our “instant” society and “fast” food that sometimes I forget to wait and pray and listen. My message?
You do not need to chase the blessings –
they will come to you!
Hallelujah, thank you Jesus!
Deuteronomy 28: 1-14 The Message (MSG)
If you listen obediently to the Voice of God, your God, and heartily obey all his commandments that I command you today, God, your God, will place you on high, high above all the nations of the world. All these blessings will come down on you and spread out beyond you because you have responded to the Voice of God, your God:
God’s blessing inside the city, God’s blessing in the country; God’s blessing on your children, the crops of your land, the young of your livestock, the calves of your herds, the lambs of your flocks. God’s blessing on your basket and bread bowl; God’s blessing in your coming in, God’s blessing in your going out. God will defeat your enemies who attack you. They’ll come at you on one road and run away on seven roads.
God will order a blessing on your barns and workplaces; he’ll bless you in the land that God, your God, is giving you.
God will form you as a people holy to him, just as he promised you, if you keep the commandments of God, your God, and live the way he has shown you.
All the peoples on Earth will see you living under the Name of God and hold you in respectful awe.
God will lavish you with good things: children from your womb, offspring from your animals, and crops from your land, the land that God promised your ancestors that he would give you. God will throw open the doors of his sky vaults and pour rain on your land on schedule and bless the work you take in hand. You will lend to many nations but you yourself won’t have to take out a loan. God will make you the head, not the tail; you’ll always be the top dog, never the bottom dog, as you obediently listen to and diligently keep the commands of God, your God, that I am commanding you today. Don’t swerve an inch to the right or left from the words that I command you today by going off following and worshiping other gods.
