The Word of God teaches us to obey all the commandments that He gives us.
If we do, we will not only live, but we will go in and take over the land
promised to us by the Lord, many years ago.
The Lord led the Israelites through the wilderness for forty years,
humbling them and testing them to find out how they would respond, and
whether or not they would really obey Him. He humbled them by letting them
go hungry and then feeding them with manna, a food previously unknown to
those who were going through the wilderness experience. God did it to help
them realize that food wasn’t everything, and that real life comes by
obeying every commandment of God. These people did not suffer with blistered
and swollen feet, nor did their clothes get old and worn.
God doesn’t want us to forget the things that He has taught us through
the Israelites’ experiences. If you want a long and satisfying life, closely
follow the instructions of the Lord. Never forget to be truthful and kind.
Hold these virtues tightly. Write them deep within your heart. If you want
favor with both God and man, and a reputation for good judgment and common
sense, then trust the Lord completely; don’t ever trust your own intellect or
wisdom. In everything you do, put God first, and he will direct you and
give you the ultimate victory and reward of success for your efforts
Don’t be selfish with too high an opinion of your own abilities, sure of
your own wisdom. Instead, trust and reverence the Lord, and turn your back
on evil; when you do, then God will give you renewed health and vitality
(Proverbs 3:8). In Proverbs 26:12, God says, “There is one thing worse than
a fool, and that is a man who is conceited.
Everyday is a brand-new day! God’s mercy is new every morning. He still
has the same great plan for our lives–He’s never changed His mind. Through
Jesus His Son, we can receive all the love and acceptance that we may be
missing. When we miss the mark, or we don’t trust Him with our lives, God
stands ready with a plan of complete restoration. Take it to the Lord in
