Commanding His Blessing

“And if you say, ‘What shall we eat in the seventh year, since we shall not sow nor gather in our produce?’
Then I will command My blessing on you in the sixth year, and it will bring forth produce enough for three years.” Leviticus 25:21-22

As God instructed the children of Israel about giving the land a sabbath rest every seventh year, He also had every intention of providing for them to be able to do as He commanded.

Thank You, Lord, that You never ask of us anything beyond what You have ready to provide. And here’s a simple poem . . .

Provision Made

The task seems impossible
how could He ask me to try
but I hear God’s voice
explaining to me why
I can do this
because He’s covered me
the salvation of His provision
being my forever guarantee.

  1. I can’t single out any one thing. It is just a good thought to be reminded of.

  2. Deb,
    Thank you for this wonderful post about God commanding His blessings. We don’t always realize God is in control because we fail to see Him through our physical eyes when we need to see Him through our spiritual eyes. God have given us the sight and the ability to commune with Him and when we truly do, we can see all that He has commanded in our lives and blessed us with. Thank you for this beautiful reminder.
    Your brother in Christ,
    Vineet

  3. It’s hard in the places where we don’t see His provision yet. Praying for everyone who is there and not trying to minimize what they are going through! God bless you and thank you for always helping us see Him!

  4. Thank you for explaining how He is still there and in control, even though we don’t see it. Trusting Him in those times stretches us, doesn’t it? God bless your trust in Him today!

  5. I second the first comment and I just wanted to stop by to read some of your words today 🙂

  6. Deb, Another great example of trusting God and not ourselves. The Israelites worried that they would have nothing to eat if they didn’t sow for the harvest, but they just needed to trust that God had a plan. Don’t we do the same, worry that things won’t work out if we don’t do it? The phrase “If you want something done right you have to do it yourself” comes to mind. But really it should be “If you want something done right you have to trust God.” Peace, Linda

  7. Oh Deb…Thank you so much! I wish I could think of something to say… Well, since I live in the South I guess this will suffice:

    “Well hush my mouth!” ha ha 🙂

    But seriously… powerful truth…much needed truth!

    Love,

    Theresa

  8. It’s always the prose – then the poem – it’s the two of them together that make me think the most.

    thank you deb

  9. Thank you for stopping by, Jessie! You bless me!

  10. That would be a big trust, wouldn’t it Linda? That He would give them enough for all that time. And they would just not sow or reap. It reminds me of my situation of not working and taking care of my daughter. I keep trying to find something more to do . . .but He always reminds me that He has provided!
    God bless you!

  11. I loved your southern comment!!! 🙂 Made me smile and I think I could hear you saying that! ha!
    Hope I can hang onto His truths and trust Him each day, more and more! Love you!

  12. I love reading what all you’ve been thinking at your blogs! 🙂 Thank you for taking the time to comment and encourage me . . .and making me think!

  13. why do I sometimes worry so much
    as if what He is providing isn’t enough.
    rea concentrate on giving thanks!
    🙂

  14. I do that too!!! We will concentrate on giving thanks to Him together! 🙂

  15. What Lady Spoon said!

    Thanks Deb. He gives and takes away and His name remains blessed. I can store up all I want. I can lose it in a moment. The key is to trust Him to provide beyond what I think I need.

    I like this very much “Thank You, Lord, that You never ask of us anything beyond what You have ready to provide. “. Reminds me of the woman who gave her last to the prophet and then God filled her containers to overflowing. “Is there anything too hard for Him?”

    Blessings
    ann

  16. I love that scripture reminder! Yes! Thank you for coming along and blessing me with that! He’s got me covered!
