“ The Lord your God Himself will fight for you” these are the words Moses was saying to Israel. In chapter 3 of Deuteronomy Moses pour out his heart and it was a long time to wait and see the promised land which God was told to Him. He was crying and saying to God : “ Oh Sovereign Lord , you have begun to show to your servant your greatness and your strong hand ..” Moses saw the greatness of God , He saw how God awesomely rescued His people. And Here he is and trying to tell God , Oh Lord please let me go in the promised land. He seems realised that God is not side of sin and not letting Him go into promised land but He appointed Joshua to go in.
Obedience is not a process of do something right rather do what is right in the eyes of God. As I am reading Deuteronomy chapter 4 , these words was highlighted for me .
“..I am about to teach you, Follow them so that you may live and may go in and take possession of the land that the Lord, the God of your father is giving you. “ ( Deuteronomy 4 : 1)
God is about to teach you, He wants to give you a new thing that you have never experienced. Himself, teach you his law and decrees. What you need to do. Follow them carefully and that you may live. So then you may go in the land and take the possession.
God wants to give you a new land. If you only be obedient to Him. Only be careful and watch yourselves closely so learn and do what He says. Moses said to people , Observe what the word of God says. And get the wisdom and understanding of it.
Let the word of God build you up, every day , every moment. Let not fall down on your mouth . and let it be your eyes and feet every step you take. Declare it in your life and obey it. When you obey it , you are doer too. God will show you the land , this is you take the possession.
He is your God , You are His Child. Obey your father.
So run for the prize that in Christ Jesus for you. You know , you will have troubles in this world. You know , But because He lives in You , you can face tomorrow . As you obeying Him everyday , As your chain are gone in Him . You are living in Heaven right now with Him until he is coming back soon.
Philippians 4 : 4
Rejoice in the Lord always; again I will say, rejoice.
Is anything in your life stopping to obey Him. Is anything in your life stopping to rejoice in Him. Put away all your worries and obey Him and take the land that God will show you.
Written by Dariush Youkhaneh
But be doers of the word, and not hearers only, deceiving yourselves.
As in the natural to have strength we must drink and eat properly and so as in the spiritual for us to have daily strength we must read the Word ( which is spiritual milk and meat ) but as it says in above verse James 1:2 we must be doers. By being doers of the Word we are obeying God. If we want to know the Lord’s will for us we must begin to obey the Bible.
IN Jesus ..amen
