Good Morning Warrior!
Hallelujah! It’s The Lord’s Day!
Word for the Day:
“Choice and Consequence”
Text: Deuteronomy 28:1-2
“Now it shall come to pass, if you diligently obey the voice of the LORD your God, to observe carefully all His commandments which I command you today, that the LORD your God will set you high above all nations of the earth.
And all these blessings shall come upon you and overtake you, because you obey the voice of the LORD your God:”
“Choice and Consequence,” is on our menu for Breakfast this morning.
After rehearsing God’s Law with Israel Moses presents the people with the choice to obey or disobey God’s voice and commandments.
Either choice has a consequence; obedience brings the blessing of God and disobedience brings the curse of God.
We can see how God enjoys blessing His people for their choice to obey Him; beginning with “setting Israel above all the nations of the earth.” And all the thrilling blessings of these 14 verses will “come upon them and overtake them!” Israel can’t escape from the blessing of God, when they obey His commandments.
Our life begins and ends with choices; and the consequences of these choices follow each of these choices.
Like a healthy branch abiding in the Vine, surrendered to the Vine and receiving the sap of the Vine with no obstruction. (John 15:1-8)
That’s obedience that brings full connection with God and all His promises and goodness “coming upon us and overtaking us,” everywhere we go!
He gives us all things pertaining to life and godliness and makes you and I partakers of the divine nature.”(2Pet.1:2-4).
God’s Blessing is so overwhelming that it flows out of you and I and touches every relationship we have with others; “our cup runs over.”(Psa.23:5).
Oh Hallelujah! God blesses us so we can Be a blessing to others; when we obey His voice and commandments!
Oh Hallelujah! The Warrior’s choice of obedience to our Commander and King has the consequence of blessing and being a blessing to every relationship we have! Ooooh Rah!
Warrior at your side,
Jesus and Billy
