The Daily Nosh – Deuteronomy 28:2
Then all these blessings will come upon you and overtake you, if you listen to the voice of Adonai your God. (TLV) Deuteronomy 28:2
Nosh: Sometimes God’s reward for faithfulness lags well behind our good efforts and leaves us wondering why He is delaying fulfilling His promise or if we will ever see its fulfillment. But here, God pledges that eventually, if we are patient and persist in being faithful to Him, His reward will catch up to us, overtake us, and run in front of us, thus inferring a season of prolonged and abundant success. Even as God long ago promised Israel, it remains true today, that the process of receiving His blessing and reward requires the exercise of faith and patience before the promised blessing arrives. So take heart and never give up!
