If we honor God in our hearts enough, we would not only fear and reverence Him, but also obey His commands.
We can’t pick from the Word what we choose to believe, and what we will not. The Word of The Lord God is straight forward as a shooting arrow. It will prick our hearts for change. When you let the Word of God into your life, you allow yourself to live. If we deny the Word access to our heart, we set ourselves up for death and shame.
God wants to bless you and your children. Like Job being given a second batch of sons, that his nagging dishonorable wife had to birth AGAIN. God wants you to live in your second wind. Set your sails in His sea and the Spirit will propel you in the direction that brings about increase and longevity.
Just think, that Job was still able to give children to His wife and raise them to adult status the second time around. That’s what you and I need. A second time around. That’s available to those who keep the commands of God.
If people would just grab a hold to the truth that is in the Word of God for their lives, they may find it less strenuous as they live their lives.
Just keep God’s Word and everything will be taken care of in the end. Just wait and see how the Lord favors us, and our sees after us.
