As I was sleeping, The Lord woke me up ad said:
You need to align yourself with My will if you want to unlock My Blessings.
As I wrote this down, I spoke to Him and said: ”Lord I know that when we walk in Your will we are blessed. Are You trying to tell me something new?”
He spoke to me saying:
Rosangela, you know that I know, past, present, and future.
I said: “Yes Lord, I know.” He continued:
When I tell you to do or not to do something it is because I know the consequences of those actions, whether good or bad. By giving you instructions to follow, I am protecting you from the plans of the enemy. I know what lies ahead, and although I have already redeemed your future, to see it manifest you need to obey those instructions. Not everything I have planned for my children comes to pass. They often choose to follow their own path, instead of the path I have prepared for them. My path is harder, My path doesn’t make sense to the human mind, and it is less traveled. My path requires faith and obedience, it is full of valleys, mountains, fires, storms, and giants. You might say:” But God, I thought that if I obeyed you, You would make me lie in green pastures and lead me along still waters!”
I will, but not before you have walked through all of those things that will make you into who you are meant to be in Me. This is the season you will know who you really are.
I Am your shepherd, and you are my sheep, I take care of you and you follow me. Sheep know and trust their shepherd; the shepherd protects and leads his sheep. Do you know Me as your shepherd? Do you know My voice? Do you trust My leading?
We will need to spend a lot of time in the wilderness to get to know each other on an intimate level.
You won’t know you are in need, unless you’ve experienced lack, you won’t appreciate rest, unless you’ve experienced exertion, you won’t know what still waters feel like unless you’ve sailed through a storm. I won’t need to restore your soul unless you’ve been broken, I won’t need to lead you onto the righteous path unless you’ve strayed away from it. You won’t experience lack of fear unless you know what fear feels like, I won’t need to use my rod and my staff unless you need correction and comfort. I won’t have to prepare a feast to celebrate your victory, unless you have enemies to fight, and I won’t have to anoint your head with oil unless you needed protection from all the attacks of the enemy.
In this season your obedience is vital to accomplish what I have planned for you! You cannot delay any longer! Step out into what I have called you to do. No more excuses, no more delay, you need to act now! This is what will separate and distinguish you from the rest.
I am calling you to be like Joseph! You keep saying :” God use me like you used Joseph! God tell me what to do and I will obey!” Well, I am telling you now, to do what I have commanded you to do.
Do not be afraid because just as I was with him, I am with you also. I have mobilized my special angelic forces to prepare the way for you, and to aid you in your calling.
Your obedience will take you through a Psalm 23 experience, which will take you to your final destination, the fulfillment of My promises in Deuteronomy 28:1-14.”
People of God, we cannot sit on the fence any longer! We are being called to take significant, bold steps of faith NOW! Not tomorrow, not later, but now! Partial obedience is disobedience.
There are blessings that can only be unlocked by aligning ourselves with The Lord.
These are blessings that, just as it happened for Joseph, will spill over onto your children, and your children’s children. The work of your hands will be blessed, your storehouses will be full. He will establish you, and place you in positions of authority and influence. He will conquer your enemies; you will always be the head and never the tail!
He will raise you up so that the world will see what being an obedient child of God looks like. They will stand in awe of what the Lord will accomplish in and through you.
We need to join forces with Him and His army, we need to come into agreement with his plans and work with Him to accomplish them. No compromise, no excuses, no more delay!

The Lord the Shepherd of His People
A Psalm of David.
23 The Lord is my shepherd; I shall not [a]want. 2 He makes me to lie down in [b]green pastures; He leads me beside the [c]still waters. 3 He restores my soul; He leads me in the paths of righteousness For His name’s sake.
4 Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil; For You are with me; Your rod and Your staff, they comfort me.
5 You prepare a table before me in the presence of my enemies; You anoint my head with oil; My cup runs over. 6 Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me All the days of my life; And I will [d]dwell in the house of the Lord [e]Forever.
28 “If you fully obey the Lord your God and carefully keep all his commands that I am giving you today, the Lord your God will set you high above all the nations of the world. 2 You will experience all these blessings if you obey the Lord your God:
3 Your towns and your fields will be blessed. 4 Your children and your crops will be blessed. The offspring of your herds and flocks will be blessed. 5 Your fruit baskets and breadboards will be blessed. 6 Wherever you go and whatever you do, you will be blessed.
7 “The Lord will conquer your enemies when they attack you. They will attack you from one direction, but they will scatter from you in seven!
8 “The Lord will guarantee a blessing on everything you do and will fill your storehouses with grain. The Lord your God will bless you in the land he is giving you.
9 “If you obey the commands of the Lord your God and walk in his ways, the Lord will establish you as his holy people as he swore he would do. 10 Then all the nations of the world will see that you are a people claimed by the Lord, and they will stand in awe of you.
11 “The Lord will give you prosperity in the land he swore to your ancestors to give you, blessing you with many children, numerous livestock, and abundant crops. 12 The Lord will send rain at the proper time from his rich treasury in the heavens and will bless all the work you do. You will lend to many nations, but you will never need to borrow from them. 13 If you listen to these commands of the Lord your God that I am giving you today, and if you carefully obey them, the Lord will make you the head and not the tail, and you will always be on top and never at the bottom. 14 You must not turn away from any of the commands I am giving you today, nor follow after other gods and worship them.
