DAILY DEVOTIONAL: IT’S FOR YOUR GOOD.
TOPIC: IT’S FOR YOUR OWN GOOD
Memorise: And the Lord commanded us to do all these statutes, to fear the Lord our God, for our good always, that he might preserve us alive, as it is at this day. Deuteronomy 6:24 KJV
Read: Deuteronomy 6:20-25
Deuteronomy 6:20 And when thy son asketh thee in time to come, saying, What mean the testimonies, and the statutes, and the judgments, which the LORD our God hath commanded you? 6:21 Then thou shalt say unto thy son, We were Pharaoh’s bondmen in Egypt; and the LORD brought us out of Egypt with a mighty hand: 6:22 And the LORD shewed signs and wonders, great and sore, upon Egypt, upon Pharaoh, and upon all his household, before our eyes: 6:23 And he brought us out from thence, that he might bring us in, to give us the land which he sware unto our fathers. 6:24 And the LORD commanded us to do all these statutes, to fear the LORD our God, for our good always, that he might preserve us alive, as it is at this day. 6:25 And it shall be our righteousness, if we observe to do all these commandments before the LORD our God, as he hath commanded us.
Beloved, I want you to consider the word of the Lord in Hebrews 12:9-10: Furthermore we have had fathers of our flesh which corrected us, and we gave them reverence: shall we not much rather be in subjection unto the Father of spirits, and live? For they verily for a few days chastened us after their own pleasure; but he for our profit, that we might be partakers of his holiness. Every counsel of the Lord and the discipline you are receiving is for your profit and good. If you embrace them, you will reap the fruits therein and if you despise the instructions of the Lord, the consequences are better not explained. May you not regret your steps at the end in Jesus name.
God has mapped out your destiny. He concluded everything about you before you were created. There’s no secret about your life before Him. In Jeremiah 1:5, He says, Before I formed thee in the belly I knew thee; and before thou camest forth out of the womb I sanctified thee, and I ordained thee a prophet unto the nations. You don’t need other gods but to hold unto the Almighty who has your life plans in His hand. Ask for grace to obey Him so it can be well with you on the earth. Embrace now, the pains of discipline so as to escape the pains of regret in future. If you love a better life and really want to live long in total prosperity without sorrow, keep the commandments of the Lord and run far away from every earthly enticements to the destructive juices of life. Only God can offer you the best in destiny. Don’t live your life outside his grace and instructions. I know it will be well with you as you make up your mind to follow the path of righteousness without compromise.
Pray with me: Heavenly Father, I ask for the grace to follow your pattern for my life. Don’t allow me to journey into life’s vanity. Keep me away from every act of disobedience in Jesus’ mighty name.
