The Israelites were blessed in more than one way. They lacked absolutely nothing. Not only were they blessed, but the people around them were to be blessed by their blessings as well. In a sense, their blessing was a dessert blessing, a little extra at the end to complement the real blessing. No, I am not talking about the delicious red velvet cake or sweet yummy fudge brownies that you eat after dinner or even before dinner. I am talking about the people of Israel. Let us “DIG” into this chapter! Enjoy:)
5 Do not contend with them, for I will not give you any of their land, no, not so much as for the sole of the foot to tread on, because I have given Mount Seir to Esau as a possession. 6 You shall purchase food from them with money, that you may eat, and you shall also buy water from them with money, that you may drink. 7 For the Lord your God has blessed you in all the work of your hands. He knows you’re going through this great wilderness. These forty years the Lord your God has been with you. You have lacked nothing.”’
When the Lord promises you something He keeps His promise and provides. The Lord gave the land that the Israelites were walking on to Esau. But instead of being a curse He turned it into a blessing that provided the Israelites with food and drink. When God gives you something, other people also benefit from it. After all, that is the purpose. It becomes an extra, “dessert” blessing. How can you apply this today? You don’t have to go and buy someone something but, by giving them a smile, hug or a “hi, how are you doing?” you can brighten someones day and show that the Lord is surely blessing you
God bless! Enjoy your blessing and don’t forget to share the blessings with others too!!
Maybe buy someone a dessert today. 😀
