Overtaking Blessings…

“And all these blessings shall come on you, and overtake you, if you shall hearken unto the voice of The Lord your God.”
Deuteronomy 28:2

Have you ever been driving along a road and suddenly noticed a vehicle has sped right up behind you? In no time it overtakes and is in front of you. What you hadn’t noticed coming up behind is now clearly visible ahead of you.

Today’s verse reminds us about blessings overtaking us. The only way something can overtake is if it’s travelling on the same road, in the same direction that we are. We are travelling on the very same road as God’s blessings whenever we listen to & obey His Word. As we stay on this road so too does God’s blessing.

There is an amazing promise from God delivered through this verse. It lets us know that the blessings God has prepared are not just travelling on the same road but they’re going to catch us and then overtake us. This means that God’s blessings will move from being in a place that’s hard to see into a place where it will be impossible to miss them. They’ll move from the unseen into our future right before us.

This week let’s remember that God’s blessings are right on our tails. They’re waiting for the opportunity to overtake and get in front of us so we can see them. Let’s allow them to do that by listening to and obeying God’s Word in every part of life. Then, before long, we’ll have the Blessings that God promised clearly in our gaze, ready to be pursued for a very happy future.
