God’s Treasured Possession
Read Deuteronomy 25:1 through 27:26
Many people resist being told what to do. The idea of “commands” can carry a negative connotation. People resent commands because they view the commands as selfish demands that place a person under obligation to do something that he or she does not want to do.
Prior to releasing them to occupy the land of Promise, God commanded the Israelites to follow the decrees just issued by Moses. God passionately described His commands as more than a set of orders. God’s commands showed the mutual affection that existed between God and God’s people.
And the Lord has declared this day that you are his people, his treasured possession as he promised, and that you are to keep all his commands (Deuteronomy 26:18).
Through the sacrifice of Jesus, Christians are even more aware of the value God has placed on each human being. The Lord, through His Word, tells us what to do. We are to embrace the opportunity to express our love for God through obedience.
Prayer Suggestion: Lord, help me to love You through obedience.
Quicklook: Deuteronomy 26:16–19
Devotional brought to you by God's Word For Today.
God's Word For Today is available from Gospel Publishing House.
Prayer is our link with God, an awesome avenue through which we can express praise and adoration to Him for His goodness, love, and mercy; and an avenue through which we can voice our petitions and concerns. God's Word assures us that we can "come boldly unto the throne of grace, that we may obtain mercy, and find grace to help in time of need" (Hebrews 4:16).
Prayer also moves the hand of God on behalf of needs and circumstances in our church, our families, our community, nation, and world. Take time to pray and intercede for these areas as God leads you. Become part of a prayer group and intercede with others in times of corporate prayer. As you seek God's help, expect reports of great victory to follow as God answers prayer.
