“45 All this happened so they would follow his decrees and obey his instructions. Praise the LORD! - Psalm 105:45 NLT
Hello family, The last verse of Psalm 105 really puts it all together for me. God simply wants our obedience, He wants us to remain loyal to Him. And be cause of the fall and sin entering the world we are imperfect full of sin and messed up. We would be facing eternity in hell with out him. But God in His infinite wisdom made away for us to come and follow Him. He gave his one and only son as the ultimate and final sacrifice for our sins past present and future. All we have to do is confess Jesus as Lord and believe in our heart God raised him form the dead and you will be saved.
Its more than just a prayer, we make Jesus lord of our life. He is the one at the wheel now not us. On our own in these fleshly bodies, we cannot follow Him, God once again in His infinite wisdom does not leave us hanging. He gives us his holy spirt to lead and guide us! “5 "But now I am going away to the one who sent me, and not one of you is asking where I am going. 6 Instead, you grieve because of what I've told you. 7 But in fact, it is best for you that I go away, because if I don't, the Advocate won't come. If I do go away, then I will send him to you. - John 16:5-7 NLT” Wow!!!!!
And He also gives us 66 books of His written word! “16 All Scripture is inspired by God and is useful to teach us what is true and to make us realize what is wrong in our lives. It corrects us when we are wrong and teaches us to do what is right. - 2 Timothy 3:16 NLT” God wants us to serve Him and he has definitely made away for us to stay submitted to Him. We may stray sometimes but because of Christ sacrifice we can ask for forgiveness repent and continue to pursue God (this is not a license to sin).
In genesis God wanted Adam and Eves obedience, he wanted them to remain loyal to Him! God does not want a bunch of robots! He wants People who will love Him! And sever Him. with out being forced too. God wants us to willingly follow him!
Much Love & God Bless
