Deuteronomy 7:9 (NLT)
Understand, therefore, that the LORD your God is indeed God. He is the faithful God who keeps his covenant for a thousand generations and lavishes his unfailing love on those who love him and obey his commands.
It’s very simple. All we have to do is love God and obey His commands. While we live in a world where everyone wants to give orders and be in command, there is only one commander in our life and that is God. It’s so easy to obey our bosses because we need that paycheck to take care of household. We’ll work overtime to get the job done and for that little extra change.
What work are we putting in for our souls? Our souls will live on eternally while that paycheck is only temporary. When was the last time you spent more than 15 minutes with God outside of a church setting? God is faithful to us but are we faithful to Him? All we have to do is love Him and obey his commands.
Father, I thank you for your faithfulness. Help me to be faithful to you. Help me to set aside that time with you on a daily basis. Help me to not only love you but also obey your commands. I can only do this with your help. In Jesus name, amen!
