Blessings for Obedience, Provided by Jesus

Deuteronomy 28
personalized present tense

confession / declaration / decree:

I am blessed in the city and blessed in the country.

The crops of my land are blessed and the young of my livestock—the calves of my herds and the lambs of my flocks are blessed.

My basket and my kneading trough are blessed.

I am blessed when I come in and blessed when I go out.

The LORD has granted that the enemies who rise up against me will be defeated before me
; they come out against me one way, but they will flee before me seven ways.

The LORD has command the blessing upon me in my barns and in all that I put my hand to, and He has blessed me in the land which the LORD my God gives me.
The LORD has established me as his holy person, as he promised me on oath, based on the perfection and obedience of Jesus, my righteousness. All the peoples on earth see that I am called by the name of the LORD, and they fear me.The LORD has granted me abundant prosperity, in the offspring of my body and in the offspring of my beast and in the produce of my ground, in the land which the LORD swore to my fathers to give me.The LORD has opened the heavens, the storehouse of his bounty, to send rain on my land in season and to bless all the work of my hands.

I lend to many nations but borrow from none. The LORD has made me the head, not the tail. I will always be at the top, never at the bottom.
