And all nations shall call you blessed: for ye shall be a delightsome land, saith the Lord of hosts.
The Malachi passage is not just a command to tithe. It is not just a pronouncement of curses. It is not an assurance of unconditional blessings. It is a package that comprises a command, a curse and blessings. We cannot accept one aspect of it and leave the others out. It is an act of spiritual dishonesty to take the part of the scripture that has to do with blessings and reject the other parts.
The climax of God’s blessing to His people is when nations call them blessed. God blesses His people openly when they obey His commandments. God gives overflowing and lasting blessings to those who obey Him. These blessings are enough for the nations of the world to take note of. God promised Israel that they would be called Hephzibah and Beulah if they obeyed Him (Isaiah 62:3-4).
May the nations of the world notice the blessings of God upon yourself life, and call you blessed.
1. Pray that your blessed life will cause men to glorify God.
2. Pray also that God will open for you international doors and acceptance.
