Returning to our series on the promises God makes to His people, we consider that He will bless us with many good things and also bless the good things He has given us.

We look at two things: If you will walk with the Lord, 

  • He will bless your possessions, and 
  • He will bless your household.

We see that the spiritual blessings that the believer receives are far greater than any material blessings the Lord may choose to give. We also reflect on the fact that material possessions can actually destroy those who have not trusted in the Lord Jesus - the health and wealth “gospel” is not taught in the Scriptures.

So if you would have these promises to apply to you, you must repent and believe in the Lord Jesus Christ, walk with Him in holiness, and then trust that He will take care of all your needs and is able to do abundantly beyond all you ask or think.
