Obedience Gateway to Maximizing The Blessedness of Our Promise Land.
Deut 11:12-15, 22-28, The land is not a lawless land, it is an orderly land because It has conditions and commandments tied to it that we must keep. How well you keep the law, determines how much you will enjoy the land.
Enjoyment of the land is not based on prayers, it is based on the commandments you obey. Wise people always look for instructions to comply with.
The more you obey, the less you pray. All answers to prayers always concludes with an instruction that we must obey.
Access to the land doesn’t culminate in automatic enjoyment, it is the obedience of the commandments that gives us access to the goods of the land.
Obedience attracts God and disobedience repels God. Quickly check if you have obeyed all the instructions that God has given to you.
What is Obedience? Deut 11:22
- Keeping GOD’S precepts. Responding to the written commandments.
The voice of the Lord in the Bible.
Deut 28:1-2 The extent of our obedience will determine the extent of our blessings.
- Doing His word/instructions. Compliance with the Rhema of the word. Gen 12:1, 26:1
God cannot trust you with His instructions, when you’ve not complied with His precepts.

How To Make our Obedience Profitable.
- Willingness. Isa 1:19
Willing people have no problem obeying God. Willingness makes obedience easy.
1 cor 9:17, 2 cor 8:12
God gains nothing from your obedience, it is you who gain everything from your obedience.
- Prompt Obedience. God is patience but He doesn’t waste time. Once God tells you to do something, He gives you time and if you don’t respond, that time is off. Gen 12:4, 17:10-24
GOD’S instructions is like a sharp knife that needs to be applied when sharp. We experience the best of grace when we are prompt in our obedience.

Be tireless in obeying His word.
It is the key to becoming a giant in the land.
Note; Deut 11:27 God always leaves us to make our choice. Eph 2:1-2 obedience and disobedience are powered by the spirit.
It is a spirit that argues and rationalise.

Obedience maybe costly but the end result is priceless.
- Supernatural Triumph over the enemy. Deut 11:25, 2 cor 10:6
