Do you think there are blessings from obeying the Lord? Would you like the blessings of the Lord poured out upon your life? I believe we all would, but we don’t always realize the connection between blessings and obedience to the Lord.
The world usually thinks of blessings in terms of wealth, but God’s blessings are a different kind of wealth. God’s blessings are in the realm of spiritual blessings and inner peace that the world cannot give.
James 2:5 Listen to me, dear brothers and sisters. Hasn’t God chosen the poor in this world to be rich in faith? Aren’t they the ones who will inherit the Kingdom he promised to those who love him?  James tells us that true richness and blessings are having a relationship with the Lord, transforming our lives. Also, as a believer, the Lord blesses you with the richness of eternal life when you pass into eternity.
The Lord Blessed Zechariah and Elizabeth
Zechariah and Elizabeth strived to follow God in their lives. Their obedience grew out of their relationship with the Lord and was something they wanted to do. They were not perfect, but they consistently wished to follow the Lord’s guidance.
Luke 1:5 When Herod was king of Judea, there was a Jewish priest named Zechariah. He was a member of the priestly order of Abijah, and his wife, Elizabeth, was also from the priestly line of Aaron. 6 Zechariah and Elizabeth were righteous in God’s eyes, careful to obey all of the Lord’s commandments and regulations.
You Can be Blessed by Obeying the Lord
We live in a culture that often rebels against God. Despite this, obeying the Lord has many blessings and benefits. While the world is filled with troubles, the Lord gives us peace. John 14:27 “I am leaving you with a gift—peace of mind and heart. And the peace I give is a gift the world cannot give. So don’t be troubled or afraid.
We can’t live the life the Lord desires by ourselves without the assistance of the Holy Spirit. I may struggle to obey God, but I can ask God for help and the strength I need. Philippians 4:13 For I can do everything through Christ, who gives me strength.
As believers, we are blessed to grow in the Spirit’s fruits as the Lord helps us mature in the faith. The Apostle Paul gives us insight into the fantastic gifts of the Holy Spirit. Galatians 5:22 But the Holy Spirit produces this kind of fruit in our lives: love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, 23 gentleness, and self-control. There is no law against these things!
