THE BLESSINGS OF “B’HUKKOTAI”

“B’hukkotai“ literally means “In my regulations”.


In this week’s Torah portion, Adonai tells us that when we walk in his regulations, abundant blessings are to follow.

Leviticus 26:3

“If you walk in my regulations, observe my mitzvot and obey them; then I will…”


Bless.


He describes his way of blessing us in a threefold manner:

  1. He will bless us physically with food and sustenance.

  2. He will bless us emotionally with his shalom (peace).

  3. He will bless us spiritually by making his home among us.


Now, if we are honest with ourselves, we know we are constantly making mistakes and falling short of the righteous requirements set by Adonai. Romans 3:23 confirms it by saying

All have sinned and fall short of the glory of God”.


So how can we, as imperfect as we are, possibly be recipients of the abundant blessings promised for obedience?


Well, first thing’s first: Messiah has made a way.

2 Corinthians 5:21

“God made this sinless man (Yeshua) be a sin offering on our behalf, so that in union with him we might fully share in God’s righteousness.”


But that’s just the start…


Adonai’s stipulations to the blessings of Leviticus 26:3 are more simple than you realize. Here’s the breakdown:

“If you *walk* in my regulations“

*Walk*- meaning to progress through and read the word of God


“If you *observe* my mitzvot“

*Observe*- meaning to watch for any instructions and direction as you read


And “if you *obey *them” *Obey*- meaning to put into action any instruction and direction you come across


It’s that simple. Adonai doesn’t expect us to know it all, understand it all, and be perfect. But he does want us to walk with him.

And the best part is… he moves at our pace ❤️

Shavua tov, beloveds
