Blessings That Overtake

To read the Bible in a year, read Deuteronomy 28.
God promised Israel that if the nation obeyed Him, this would happen, “And all these blessings shall come upon you and overtake you, because you obey the voice of the LORD your God…” (Deuteronomy 28:2). Then Moses listed all the blessings. Usually the words, “shall come upon you and overtake you,” would refer to an enemy during battle. Yet, Moses spoke not of an enemy, but of the Lord through His blessings, coming upon Israel and overtaking the nation. He would overwhelm the nation with good things.
Take some time to count the Lord’s blessings upon you and discover that He has also come upon you and overtaken you with blessings. And please do not just list blessings of this world, but list blessings of the spirit.
