To make thee high above all..
Deut 28:1 ¶ And it shall come to pass, if thou shalt hearken diligently unto the voice of the LORD thy God, to observe and to do all his commandments which I command thee this day, that the LORD thy God will set thee on high above all nations of the earth:
God is wanting to make something out of your life!
If you sell out to Jesus, you enter into covenant with God, the Creator of the universe. He is still creating beautiful things, and you are one of them, a work in progress, if you decide to serve Him.
Deut 26:18 And the LORD hath avouched thee this day to be his peculiar people, as he hath promised thee, and that thou shouldest keep all his commandments;
19 And to make thee high above all nations which he hath made, in praise, and in name, and in honour; and that thou mayest be an holy people unto the LORD thy God, as he hath spoken.
There are great blessings available to us, as we serve Him, and make Jesus our Lord. Today’s Bible reading in Deut 28, describes and promises many of them in the first 14 verses.
Yet it still comes down to a day to day, one day at a time, walk with Him. Seeking Him, hearing Him, obeying Him, learning, working, growing, acting in faith, as He reveals the next step in our lives.
Today is a great day for miracles, as we walk with Jesus!
Father, today is the day, I declare my love for you, and decide, afresh and anew, to serve You. I trust You to do Your part, to separate me unto Yourself, and make me a holy person unto You, in praise, name, honour, separated unto Your glory. Thank You Jesus, for making all this possible, only through Your shed blood, death, and resurrection. Amen!”
