Deuteronomy 11:13-14 (NIV) – So if you faithfully obey the commands I am giving you today—to love the Lord your God and to serve him with all your heart and with all your soul—then I will send rain on your land in its season, both autumn and spring rains, so that you may gather in your grain, new wine and olive oil.
The covenant that the Lord made with God’s people has stipulations. Unlike business contracts that are inundated with consequences to breach of terms, God’s terms are filled with blessings that are still active today. The promise of His blessing to those who follow and love the Lord is now played out in full measure as we grow in obedience and love to Christ. It is for our good that the Lord has given these timeless truths that are fully accomplished through Jesus.
Prayer: Lord, thank you for your timeless truth of providing for us the true way of blessing that is in Christ. May I, even as today, this very moment, give my heart to you. Help me to love you, Lord. Help me grow in love for you, grow in the Spirit’s work for you glory. In Jesus’ name, Amen.
Song: “Take All Of Me” by Hillsong United. As we surrender our lives to the Lord today, let’s sing that chorus “I love you” as a prayer, deeply desiring to grow in love for Jesus.
