      Do you want God to bless what you are doing,
      … or what you are plannng to do?

It is easy to take a scripture,
… and then ask God to bless what you are doing,
particularly a well known scripture such as,

      Go into all the world and preach the gospel to every creature.
      Mark 16:15

Of course God wants to bless what we do,
… and especially when we are reaching out to others.
But so often it seems that that is just not happening!
Why not?

Although God has said that He wants to bless us,
… He has also set some conditions for that to be so,

      Now it shall come to pass, if you diligently obey
      the VOICE of the Lord your God, to observe
      carefully all His commandments which I command you today …
      And all these blessings shall come upon you and overtake you,
      because you obey the VOICE of the Lord your God:
      Deut 28:1-2

      God wants to be personally involved in where you go
      … and in what you do!
      Therefore, if you want God to bless what you are doing,
      … or what you are planning to do,
      then make sure you are doing what He wants you to do!

Jesus, in Mark 16:15 gave His disciples some clear instructions,
… as to what He wanted them to do,
and only as they went and did exactly what He had told them,
… could He go with them and bless what they did!

      And they went out and preached everywhere,
      the Lord working with them and confirming the word
      through the accompanying signs. Amen.
     Mark 16:20
