Anything can fail; our obedience to scriptural commandments can never fail. Obedience is the master key to all scriptural rewards. One thing that my Father in Christ normally says is that BE GOD GREEDY. That is if you’re greedy of what serving God offers you’ll not have to be coerced to obey.
Deuteronomy 28:1-3 KJV
