Thou shalt also consider in thine heart, that, as a man chasteneth his son, SO THE LORD THY GOD CHASTENETH THEE. Therefore thou shalt Keep the Commandments of the Lord thy God, to Walk in His Ways, and to Fear Him (with a Holy and Reverent fear). For the Lord thy God bringeth thee into a good land, a land of brooks of water, of fountains and depths that spring out of valleys and hills; A land wherein thou shalt eat bread without scarceness, thou shalt not lack any thing in it; a land whose stones are iron, and out of whose hills thou mayest dig brass. When thou hast eaten and art full, then thou shalt Bless The Lord thy God for the good land which He hath given thee. BEWARE THAT THOU FORGET NOT THE LORD THY GOD, IN NOT KEEPING HIS COMMANDMENTS, AND HIS JUDGMENTS, AND HIS STATUTES, WHICH I COMMAND THEE THIS DAY: Deuteronomy 8:5-7,9-11. If you were in prison, even in solitary confinement, could you say that you were extremely Blessed of the Lord? Could this be very intimate and personal time with the Lord? Are you Blessed yet? If you were talking with the Lord and He was equally talking with you, are you Blessed yet? If He allowed you out of solitary, out of jail, to give your Testimony, could you say the whole experience was a Blessing of the most Personal and Intimate degree with the Lord? If you need Encouragement on Blessings, ask the Apostle John when he was released from the Isle of Patmos if he had a Time of Blessings or not. Even if you don't write a new book of the Bible, can you tell the Lord that your Personal and Intimate Time with Him was NOT a Blessing? Or can you just say that ANY time with the Lord, wrapped up in ALL situations and circumstances He allows during your time of Fellowship with Him, is a time of Great Blessing? Isn't this really all about your Heart Attitude about and with the Lord no matter what's going on around you? Will you still Be Blessed during the coming time of Persecution of all Believers? What will happen for you to, Be Blessed?
