Walk in obedience

Standard

Now what I am commanding you today is not too difficult for you or beyond your reach. It is not up in heaven, so that you have to ask, “Who will ascend into heaven to get it and proclaim it to us so we may obey it?” Nor is it beyond the sea, so that you have to ask, “Who will cross the sea to get it and proclaim it to us so we may obey it?” No, the word is very near you; it is in your mouth and in your heart so you may obey it. See, I set before you today life and prosperity, death and destruction. For I command you today to love the Lord your God, to walk in obedience to him, and to keep his commands, decrees and laws; then you will live and increase, and the Lord your God will bless you in the land you are entering to possess. Deuteronomy 30:11-16

I am going to break this down by a verse or two at a time.

Now what I am commanding you today is not too difficult for you or beyond your reach.

He has given us the command to love Him with all our heart earlier in this chapter. It is not too hard to obey this command. It is not difficult or out of reach He tells us. It’s right in front of us. We see opportunities but we do not take them and then we ask God why he is not giving us opportunities. We struggle and we fall short but He is right there waiting for us to call upon Him to restore us. See it’s never out of reach it is always right there in out face we as humans are just blind or maybe we are to stubborn and we want to do it our way. I know because I have done it plenty of times. I want to do things my way. I want to skip college and go on missions but God’s plan is different and that is why I am in college. I have no idea what the outcome may be but it’s not far out of reach I just have to find it.

This passage goes onto say,

It is not up in heaven, so that you have to ask, “Who will ascend into heaven to get it and proclaim it to us so we may obey it?” Nor is it beyond the sea, so that you have to ask, “Who will cross the sea to get it and proclaim it to us so we may obey it?” No, the word is very near you; it is in your mouth and in your heart so you may obey it.

It tells us clearly we do not have to search in Heaven not across the seas to find it. We have this word in us. We have been given this word so that we may proclaim it and obey it. It is in out hearts we have it and we know it. It is in our mouths yet we do not obey it. Why do we disobey the one person trying to protect us? We disregard everything we have been told for the lies of something destructive. He has given us the word so that we will obey it and proclaim to others to hear.

See, I set before you today life and prosperity, death and destruction.

We have a choice on which we would rather have. We choose Him or we choose the world. He is the giver of life and prosperity. Through Him all is done and we have been given hope to live fully and abundantly. He is more than enough for us. We seek Him yet we follow the world. This is not possible and that is when we find death and destruction. Because rather than finding Him we searched and took pleasure in worldly things, so we now have see the outcome of death. In death we live sinfully and in disobedience. He has asked us to be obedient. It’s simple yet we make it so difficult.

For I command you today to love the Lord your God, to walk in obedience to him, and to keep his commands, decrees and laws; then you will live and increase, and the Lord your God will bless you in the land you are entering to possess.

I have told you this we are meant to live in obedience in God and we will prosper. We need to keep his commands and laws. He will bless us beyond compare when we live with him.

I have no other words to say. Read and interpret for yourselves. This is only opinion and God may reveal something different to you. I love you all and God Bless.
