Observe His Commandments

Posted on Posted in Character, Trust

                            and you will be blessed!
God’s heart is to bless us, and to bless us in abundance…

      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 …
      And all these blessings shall come upon you and overtake you,
      Deut 28:1-2

Sounds great, but what are these commandments?
How do you obey, observe and live them?

God wants to bless us and not test us,
… therefore gives us clear instructions and a perfect solution.

      For the commandment is a lamp,
      And the law a light;
      Reproofs of instruction are the way of life,

      Prov 6:20-23

The Commandment, God’s character … LOVE – is a lamp
… a lamp that shows us God’s way of doing things,
… of living a fruitful life that expresses His character, love!

      You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, with all your soul,
      and with all your mind. This is the first and great commandment.
      And the second is like it: You shall love your neighbor as yourself.
      On these two commandments hang all the Law and the Prophets.
      Matt 22:37-40

But what about the Ten Commandments, the Law?
The Law God says is a light,
… showing up those things that will hurt, even steal our lives!
In other words, what not to do and what to avoid in life!

      So God can bless you … and all to which you set your hand.
      Deut 28:8
