Title: Obedient to The Word of God  is a blessing

( Deuteronomy 30: 1-10) When all these blessings and curses I have set before you come on you and you take them to heart wherever the Lord your God disperses you among the nations, 2 and when you and your children return to the Lord your God and obey him with all your heart and with all your soul according to everything I command you today, 3 then the Lord your God will restore your fortunes and have compassion on you and gather you again from all the nations where he scattered you. 4 Even if you have been banished to the most distant land under the heavens, from there the Lord your God will gather you and bring you back.

5 He will bring you to the land that belonged to your ancestors, and you will take possession of it. He will make you more prosperous and numerous than your ancestors. 6 The Lord your God will circumcise your hearts and the hearts of your descendants, so that you may love him with all your heart and with all your soul, and live. 7 The Lord your God will put all these curses on your enemies who hate and persecute you. 8 You will again obey the Lord and follow all his commands I am giving you today. 9 Then the Lord your God will make you most prosperous in all the work of your hands and in the fruit of your womb, the young of your livestock and the crops of your land. The Lord will again delight in you and make you prosperous, just as he delighted in your ancestors, 10 if you obey the Lord your God and keep his commands and decrees that are written in this Book of the Law and turn to the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul.

 

Moses told the Israelites that whenever they were ready to return to God , he would be ready to receive them. God’s mercy is amazing , going far beyond what we can imagine. Even if His people deliberately walked away from Him and ruined their lives. God would still take them back and give them inward spiritual renewal, by circumcising their hearts. God wants to continue our relationship with Him. God is willing to forgive us , no matter how bad our sins may seem to be.

God has called us to keep His commands and reminds us that,  His laws are not hidden from us or beyond our reach. Have you ever said that you would obey God if you knew what He wanted ? Or have you ever complained that obedience is too difficult for you to observe? There is no excuse that is acceptable in the sight of God for living in disobedient. God’s laws are written in the Bible and are evident in the world around us.

Obeying The word of God is reasonable and beneficial. The most difficult part of obeying the word of God is simply deciding to start immediately. Moses challenged the people of Isreal to choose life, to obey God and therefore to continue to experience His blessings. God does not force His will on anyone. He lets us decide whether to follow Him or reject Him. This decision, however is a life -or -death matter. God wants us to realize this, for He would like us all to choose life. Daily, in each new situation, we must affirm and reinforce this commitment. Obeying the Laws of the Lord will attract blessings and disobedient to the laws lead to everlasting doom. God is still interested to give us the grace to live as obedient children of God so that it will be well with us.

Prayers: God please help me to live a life that will attract your favor upon my life in Jesus name. Help me Lord to live a life of obedient to your word in Jesus name. I receive your blessings upon my life and my family in Jesus name. Amen.
