S. O. A. P.
Here’s your 90 second AM devotional!
If you fully obey the Lord your God and carefully follow all his commands I give you today, the Lord your God will set you high above all the nations on earth.
God made a promise to the nation of Israel, and I believe to all “Followers of Jesus.” God said, “IF you will fully obey Me, I will elevate you above every other nation or people on earth.”
The word “IF” in this case throws it all back into the “HEARERS” court so to speak. In other words, God makes all of us an offer. “IF you will do this … then I will do this!” God gives you and I the choice that will insure our results one way or another. In the first fourteen verses of Deuteronomy 28, God lists the blessings He will give anyone who fully obeys Him. But after that, the next verse through to the end of verse sixty-eight lists all of the curses that will come on those who rebel against the Almighty! This is why it has often been said, “Sin carries its own consequences.” Every blessing and every curse has already been listed, thousands of years before the “IF” is ever decided upon. Make no mistake … the results of what happens to us are NOT in God’s hands! And it’s all predicated upon that one word … “IF.”
I know that “IF” I will obey You, blessings and victories are coming my way. I just want to say this AM, I surely WILL. Amen
