Over Taken

“And all these blessings shall come upon you and over take you, because you obey the voice of the Lord your God.” Deuteronomy 28:2

The people had been overtaken by the Egyptians, by fear, by oppression, and by doubt. To be overtaken by blessings? That was something to be glad about!

Oh Lord, we thank You for the blessings You lavish upon us. But may we be overtaken more and more by the desire to hear and obey Your voice. And here is a simple poem . . .

His Voice In Our Ear

God is talking
and we’re listening
wanting to know
what He’s all about.
We are asking
God is answering
oh so close
no need to shout.

  1. The verse is so exciting for me Deb because God fulfills His promises! Even without opening my mouth, He sometimes grants the desire of my heart and I call it miracle knowing that not all of my desires are His too πŸ™‚

  2. I loved your poem and that we can be overtaken with blessings!

    Thank you so much for sharing this. πŸ™‚

    Love,
    Theresa
