Oh, that they would always have hearts like this, that they might fear me and obey all my commands! If they did, they and their descendants would prosper forever. [NLT] – Deuteronomy 5:29
….
God desires our welfare and salvation. We are not here alone, or “in it” alone. He has sent his Son to redeem us, promised HIS Spirit to those who pray For His presence, and has declared to us on more than one occasion that HE has no pleasure in our ruin. If you have the love of a loving Father who dots on you, then obeying the things he has asked you to do comes naturally. But for some reason not with our Heavenly Father. And the saddest thing is, obeying Him is not even for His benefit, it’s more so for ours. For us! Since obeying Him propels us to prosper in the things that we do. Let’s make up our mind today to pursue and obey the things that makes him happy, since ultimately it’s our happiness that is at stake, NOT HIS!
