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 forever.
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 our hearts, with all our souls and with all our minds today and every day.
God honors people who honor Jesus. The Lord blesses people who live in obedience to Him!
If we honor Jesus in all we do God will honor us. If we draw close to Jesus in our hearts He will draw close to us. Jesus will provide for us and protect us. He will give us victory over our enemies. The Lord will cause us to dwell together in unity, safety, and prosperity.
Jesus 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!
What is it Jesus wants to do on this the first day of the rest of your life? Jesus wants to draw you deeper into intimate relationship with Him. Jesus wants you to love Him with all 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 today!
Jesus chose you to live in this place at this time in His-story. You are a royal priest and an ambassador of Christ to the nations. Pray for healing. Pray for unity. Pray for righteousness to sweep across the face of the earth!
Pray for Jesus to be lifted-up before the nations. Pray for men, women, and children to bow before the Lord of Glory and love Jesus Christ with all their heart, soul, and strength!
Call out to Jesus on behalf of our nation and all the nations of the world today!
