“When the LORD your God brings you into the land… then take care lest you forget the LORD.” Deuteronomy 6:10, 12

This was the warning given to God’s people who were entering the Promised Land. Watch out! You’re going to face three dangers as God’s blessings flow into your life.

Opportunity: “Great and good cities that you did not build” (6:10).

Cities are places of opportunity. They have infrastructure with large populations. Business thrives there. Cities are built over decades and generations, but these people will have all the opportunity of life in cities they did not even build. God is taking these people from the desert and putting them in a place of extraordinary opportunity.

Property: “Houses full of all good things that you did not fill” (6:11).

God is giving this land to His people, and each tribe and clan would be given their own property as an inheritance. They had been living in tents out in the desert, but now they will live in homes—with no mortgages! Their parents left Egypt with nothing. Now there would be a family home, property, and an inheritance that would be passed from one generation to the next.

Income: “Vineyards and olive trees that you did not plant” (6:11).

Vineyards and olive trees give the means of generating an income. The people will be able to sow, plan, and harvest. They will have food and will be able to generate an income. This is a marvelous promise of the blessing of God.

But when this happens, when you have opportunity and property and the means of generating an income, Moses is saying, “Take care” (6:12). This will be a time of great danger for you.

Are you experiencing a season of blessing from the Lord?
