The Adventure of Obedience
Deuteronomy 4:1-2, GW Israel, listen to the laws and rules I am about
to teach you. Obey them so that you will live and be able to enter and
take possession of the land that the LORD God of your ancestors is
Never add anything to what I command you, or take anything away
from it. Then you will be able to obey the commands of the LORD your
God that I give you.
God promises to provide if we trust and obey Him. Saying we believe in
God isn't enough, especially if our words and action give lie to our
God isn't fooled, not like many voters, fooled by God-sounding
rhetoric. He sees our hearts. We can't fool Him or rationalize our
actions or sin. If we wish to truly know God we must go after Him,
seek Him. If we want the blessings He's ready to give, we must trust
and follow Him and His principles. Only then will our lives be a
wondrous adventure worth living.
Deuteronomy 4:29, 40 GW But if you look for the LORD your God when you
are among those nations, you will find him whenever you search for him
with all your heart and with all your soul. ...Obey his laws and
commands which I'm giving you today. Then things will go well for you
and your descendants. You will live for a long time in the land. The
LORD your God is giving you the land for as long as you live.
