Scripture indicates God Blesses us greatly but in particular always blesses obedience to Him.
Wisdom Keys can be thought of as things we can do that God will bless when they are done with right motive.
I have just started a series of sermons on Wisdom Keys and have found such Keys are so numerous that it is unquestionable that God wants to bless abundantly.
Examples of Wisdom Keys:
Seek and Find, Ask and it will be Given to You, Knock and the Door will be Opened. Matthew 7:7
Meaning some blessings are for the seeking and asking.
“Blessed are the Merciful for they shall see mercy” (also interpreted blessed are the compassionate for they shall receive compassion, and give mercy receive mercy). Matthew 5:7
Meaning some blessings are reciprocal based on what we do for others.
“Commit to the Lord whatever you do and He will establish your plans”. Proverbs 16:3
Meaning some blessings are based on our commitment to include God in what we do.
“Whoever gives heed to instruction prospers,
and blessed is the one who trusts in the Lord.” Proverbs 16:20
Meaning faith and trust can bring blessings.
“Do not repay evil with evil or insult with insult. On the contrary, repay evil with blessing, because to this you were called so that you may inherit a blessing.” I Peter 3:9
Meaning give up your human right to fight back and let divine wisdom allow you to love others.
“Bring the whole tithe into the storehouse, that there may be food in my house. Test me in this,” says the Lord Almighty, “and see if I will not throw open the floodgates of heaven and pour out so much blessing that there will not be room enough to store it.” Malachi 3:10
Meaning you cannot out give God, He even says test Him.
“Blessed are the peacemakers,
for they will be called children of God.” Matthew 5:9
Peace is very important because it establishes a climate or atmosphere that God can work within.
How much does God want to bless us?
Luke 6:38 “Give, and it will be given to you. A good measure, pressed down, shaken together and running over, will be poured into your lap. For with the measure you use, it will be measured to you."
Is running over and poured in your lap enough? WOW God knows how to bless us through the good Lord. Running over and poured out is endless.
The sum of it all:
"For the Lord God is a sun and shield; the Lord bestows favor and honor; no good thing does He withhold from those who walk uprightly." Psalm 84:11
“For I know the plans I have for you, declares the Lord, plans for welfare and not for evil, to give you a future and a hope.” Jeremiah 29:11
“Death and life are in the power of the tongue: and they that love it shall eat the fruit thereof.” Proverbs 18:21
Which fruit do we like to speak and eat and receive? Things pertaining to Life I believe we would all say.
