Another Precious Promise

Deut. 6:"1 "These are all the commands, laws, and regulations that the LORD your God told me to teach you so you may obey them in the land you are about to enter and occupy, 2 and so you and your children and grandchildren might fear the LORD your God as long as you live. If you obey all his laws and commands, you will enjoy a long life. 3 Listen closely, Israel, to everything I say. Be careful to obey. Then all will go well with you, and you will have many children in the land flowing with milk and honey, just as the LORD, the God of your ancestors, promised you."

I would love to have a long life-I would love for things to go well with me-I would love to have children in a land flowing with milk and honey.

This is just a small speck of the promises of God.

My part is to be obedient to Him- fear Him. Obedience means to revere His Son- trust in Him- I desire to obey Him out of love- I am always short- but He is always faithful.

Father- I need to know You more- I need to take my desire to obey more faithfully- we both know the many areas I am short- I claim Your promises and know that You are powerful to fulfill. I need forgiveness and by faith proclaim it in Jesus.
