Scripture Quote: In this agreement, the LORD promised that you would be his people and that he would be your God. He first made this promise to your ancestors Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob, and today the LORD is making this same promise to you. But it isn't just for you; it is also for your descendants. (Deuteronomy 29:13 CEV)
God hasn't explained or revealed His Full Glory to His children. We can’t know things that he has preordained for the future, or all the intricacies of His work in each of our lives. However, God has commanded us to obey the laws in His Word that he gave to us and our descendants. Those commands we can understand - Disobedience results in consequences, the worst of which is estrangement in our relationship with God. Believers don't want to miss out on God's kindness and protection. There is nothing that this world has to offer that can supply the enormous joy of the indwelling of the Holy Spirit.
The purposes of God on behalf of His people are too difficult for humanity to comprehend, but He has deliberately made certain concepts within our grasp. We are His children and God The Father loves us dearly and completely. His Word abounds with instruction, warnings, and Divine Providence. God wants us to be successful in our lives. We can choose to learn His Laws and honor them so that in everything we do we will have His blessing.
Today’s meditation: Follow God’s Word and be blessed.
Memory Verse: If you follow and obey the LORD, he will make you his own special people, just as he promised. (Deuteronomy 28:9 CEV)
