And you will be Blessed when you go out. Deuteronomy 28:6
When God blesses us as we go out, He’s telling us that He’ll be with us everywhere. The outside world can be a scary place, and that fear is often justified. Going out with God as our escort should make us feel more confident, powerful and secure.
Here, God is telling the Israelites they’ll receive His unlimited blessings, but only if they love and obey Him. Jesus taught us how to love God. He said it means to love Him with our hearts, bodies, minds and souls and to love our neighbors as ourselves. John says it’s much tougher to love others than Him. But we have to go out to meet others. And we usually have to go out of our way to even try. Don’t give up trying.
