For what great nation is there that has God so near to it, as the Lord our God is to us, for whatever reason we may call upon Him? And what great nation is there that has such statutes and righteous judgments as are in all this law which I set before you today? Deuteronomy 4:7-8 NKJV
Moses called the nation of Israel to righteousness and obedience to God.
Moses told Israel if they obeyed God’s commands He would be with them and bless them. God would provide for them and give them victory over their enemies. If they worshiped the Lord only they would dwell in a land flowing with milk and honey.
God is the same yesterday today and tomorrow.
Jesus is calling us to obey His righteous commands today. The Lord is calling us to worship Him and only Him today. God’s greatest desire is for us to love Him with all of our hearts, with all of our souls and with all of our minds.
God honors people who honor Jesus today. The Lord blesses people who live in obedience to Him today!
If we honor God in all we do He will honor us. If we draw close to God in our hearts He will draw close to us. God will provide for us and protect us. He will give us victory over our enemies. The Lord will cause us to dwell together in safety and prosperity.
God is doing a new thing in the world. He is doing a new thing in the lives of people who know Him and trust Him today.
What is it God wants to do on this the first day of the rest of your life? God wants to draw you deeper into intimate relationship with Him. Jesus wants you to love Him with all of your heart with all of your soul and with all of your mind!
Jesus is near to you today. You may call upon the Lord for any reason!
