“In that I command you today to love the Lord your God, to walk in His ways and to keep His commandments and His statues and His judgments, that you may live and multiply, and that the Lord your God may bless you in the land were you are entering to posses it.” Deuteronomy 30: 16 (NASB)
The Word of God is pretty clear. Through we often want to ignore it, or walk away for a while, if we are seeking His wisdom there is no getting around the fact that we need to choose odedience.
The Bible tells us over and over that we are to keep God’s commands. If we do so, we will find blessings in our lives. If not, life looks pretty bleak. It’s not always easy to choose a life of obedience. Our fleshly desires spring up constantly, getting in the way of what we are called to do.
In the long run, walking with the Lordis choosing a life filled with joy. Our earthly possessions and ambitions will only leave us feeling flat. Pray for a spirit of obedience so that God can increase His blessings in your life. Walk side by side with the Lord today, seeking His will. Choose obedience, choose joy!
