The head and not the tail…

Deuteronomy 28:13 And the LORD shall make thee the head, and not the tail; and thou shalt be above only, and thou shalt not be beneath; if that thou hearken unto the commandments of the LORD thy God, which I command thee this day, to observe and to do them:

An Old Testament scripture that has great truth for us today!  We wonder why we are not blessed as a people or as a nation. Why is there such confusion, gridlock and strife? The truth is in this verse. As long as we are faithful to God, He blesses us. When we reject his commandments His blessings cease.

If we obey the commandments of God and we honor Him. He puts us on the top and not the bottom. He makes us the head and not the tail. We can have the blessing of God in our lives if we will honor His word and follow his direction. He has given us His promise!  Deuteronomy 28:1 And it shall come to pass, if thou shalt hearken diligently unto the voice of the LORD thy God, to observe and to do all his commandments which I command thee this day, that the LORD thy God will set thee on high above all nations of the earth.

The prophet Samuel said, "Behold, to obey is better than sacrifice" (I Samuel 15:22).  We cannot control the actions and deeds of our nation but we can control the obedience of our own lives. Let us be obedient to His commands so that he can bless us!

Keep Looking Up!
