Faithfully obey

And if you faithfully obey the voice of the Lord your God, being careful to do all his commandments that I command you today, the Lord your God will set you high above all the nations of the earth. (Deuteronomy 28:1)

There are a good number of people who want the blessings of God but want to avoid obeying the Lord too. The question is not the capacity of God nor the Gospel of Jesus Christ to be a blessing to you. Rather it’s about your personal accountability to the Lord God. Some foolish people feel entitled to every blessing mentioned in the Bible but ask them if they give time to prayer and what do they pray about then don’t be surprised with their answer. They’d say that they pray for a car or house or some material thing all the time. However the part of prayer where they are to thank God and ask of his mercy turns out to be alarmingly lacking. You’d also notice they make hardly any prayers for the peace of Jerusalem nor for the Gospel reaching the lost and unsaved. Obviously, they won’t ask for the grace of God to do everything that God has commanded them to do. Don’t be like these self obsessed people. Rather be a true obedient worshipper of God. And yes, to obey you need to know what the Lord God has said. For this very reason make sure you actually read the Bible and pray that Jesus Christ leads you by the Holy Spirit into all truth. Don’t focus too much on prosperity but rather to the Lord God to whom belongs all wholesome and life giving prosperity.

Christ be with you!
