Curses and blessings

c*

Deuteronomy 27-28

Do you know the curses and blessings from these chapters of Deuteronomy?

The curses outnumber the blessings.  We often respond more to negative reinforcement than positive.  The curses included, but were not limited to disease, starvation, oppression, cannibalism, fruitlessness.

The choice between blessing and curses, life and death is ours to make. Even God’s judgments are evidence of His mercy. Life without God is empty, nothing, desolate.

God mercifully uses blessings and warning to discipline His people.

What is God using in my life to change me? What circumstance is He using to bring me closer to Him.

God does not promise material blessings.  He promises spiritual blessings of forgiveness, salvation, eternal life and peace.

Lord, I want to be closer to You day by day. Thank You for all Your blessings. I am blessed beyond measure.
