Deu 28:10-13 And all people of the earth shall see that you are called by the name [and in the presence of] the Lord, and they shall be afraid of you. 11 And the Lord shall make you have a surplus of prosperity, through the fruit of your body, of your livestock, and of your ground, in the land which the Lord swore to your fathers to give you. 12 The Lord shall open to you His good treasury, the heavens, to give the rain of your land in its season and to bless all the work of your hands; and you shall lend to many nations, but you shall not borrow. 13 And the Lord shall make you the head, and not the tail; and you shall be above only, and you shall not be beneath, if you heed the commandments of the Lord your God which I command you this day and are watchful to do them.

Confession for November: “I obey the voice of the Lord my God and walk in His Ways. My life is filled with His blessings. I am blessed when I go in, and blessed when I go out. He has made me the head and not the tail, above only and not beneath. He has given me a surplus of prosperity. Before the end of this year I know I will see a bountiful harvest, and my year will be crowned with blessing.”
