“Rebuke the devourer for your sakes, and he shall not destroy the fruits of your ground; neither shall your vine cast her fruit before the time in the field.” The Lord will protect us from satan, from evil forces and mischief arrayed against us and our efforts will come to fruition and we will prosper.
“And all nations shall call you blessed: for ye shall be a delightsome land.” Others will recognize that you are blessed and, I suggest, this will stand as a testimony before many that will lead them to praise and serve the Lord as well.
Privileges and blessings far beyond anything we can imagine are available to us IF we are obedient to the Lord’s commands — otherwise, we “have no promise.” I suggested to my dear friend the need to pay a full tithing. I know she will. Unimaginable blessings await her for doing so. I know this because time and again the Lord has blessed me and blessed members of my family as we fully tithed and as we sought to obey his commandments and personal commissions given to each of us.
