Reasons to Obey View video
Deuteronomy 28:7 - 28:14
7. The LORD will grant that the enemies who rise up against you will be defeated before you. They will come at you from one direction but flee from you in seven.
8. The LORD will send a blessing on your barns and on everything you put your hand to. The LORD your God will bless you in the land he is giving you.
9. The LORD will establish you as his holy people, as he promised you on oath, if you keep the commands of the LORD your God and walk in his ways.
10. Then all the peoples on earth will see that you are called by the name of the LORD, and they will fear you.
11. The LORD will grant you abundant prosperity--in the fruit of your womb, the young of your livestock and the crops of your ground--in the land he swore to your forefathers to give you.
12. The LORD will open the heavens, the storehouse of his bounty, to send rain on your land in season and to bless all the work of your hands. You will lend to many nations but will borrow from none.
13. The LORD will make you the head, not the tail. If you pay attention to the commands of the LORD your God that I give you this day and carefully follow them, you will always be at the top, never at the bottom.
14. Do not turn aside from any of the commands I give you today, to the right or to the left, following other gods and serving them.
Reflection
The Goodness of God’s Law (28:7–10)
God promises to bless the Israelites in every aspect of life in their new land if they obey Him and live according to His ways. The specific ways in which they will succeed and prosper are very much tied to their geographic location and agricultural circumstances, but they also reflect the general principle that God’s laws are meant for the good of His people. God is the Creator of the world, and His laws reflect the order and productivity He desires to see in His creation. Though we are not saved by our works, it still stands true that obedience to God’s commands brings forth blessings. We must not abuse His grace by using it as an excuse to ignore His law. Let us obey our God because He is good and desires good for us.

Persuasive Proof (28:11–14)
The nation of Israel has a special place in God’s plan to redeem the world. Through their obedience to God’s specific code of conduct for their lives, they will be set apart from all other nations and be recognized as His people. As Israel demonstrates their God-given prosperity to the world, they will influence and lead other nations to worship the one, true God. Eyewitnesses and tangible evidence are often more compelling than second-hand, verbal testimony. Likewise, our transformed lives as followers of Christ serve as powerful proof that God is real and active in the world. May the Holy Spirit continue to sanctify us so that we may be powerful and effective witnesses for the gospel.
Application

A Letter to God
Father, I rejoice in Your law, for in it I see Your perfect character and loving goodness. Help me eagerly obey You so that my life may testify of Your grace. In Jesus’ name, amen.
