Daily Devotions with Spurgeon: 28th November

Doing what God Can Bless

The Lord shall command the blessing on you in your storehouses, and in all that you set your hand to do. (Deuteronomy 28:8)

If we obey the Lord our God He will bless that which He gives us. Riches are no curse when blessed of the Lord. When men have more than they require for their immediate need and begin to lay up in storehouses, the dry rot of covetousness or the blight of hard-heartedness is apt to follow the accumulation; but with God’s blessing it is not so. Prudence arranges the saving, liberality directs the spending, gratitude maintains consecration, and praise sweetens enjoyment.

The Lord will bless all that you “set your hand” to. We would not put our hand to anything upon which we dare not ask God’s blessing, neither would we go about it without prayer and faith. But what a privilege to be able to look for the Lord’s help in every enterprise! The Lord’s blessing is infinitely more than all the fruit of talent, genius, or tact.
