Return *Deut. 30

Deuteronomy 30;NIV
This is what God promises to do for you, if you return to the Lord your God and obey Him with all your heart and with all your soul according to everything He commands you. The following is what God will do for you: *restore your fortunes *have compassion on you *gather you and bring you back *be more prosperous *be more numerous *circumcise your heart *circumcise your descendants’ hearts *greater love for God *give life and live *curse on enemies *obey the Lord * follow His commands *prosper the work of your hands *prosper your fruit & crops *delight in you *make you prosper.
How many times does God tell us that we will prosper and gain life and have so many blessings if only we return to God and follow Him. All this the Lord God promises to do, if you obey Him by keeping His commands that He gives us in His Word, and to turn to the Lord your God with all your heart and soul.
The greatest command Jesus taught us to obey was to love the Lord God with all our heart and soul and love people like we want to be loved and treated. If we do this, then all the Law of the prophets is fulfilled. It’s not like He’s asking us a ton of things to do. He only requires that we love Him, treat Him with respect and honor (obey Him) and to treat all people with love & respect.
God is not requesting; He is commanding. God’s command is not unrealistic. It’s not beyond our reach. It’s not out of reach; it’s attainable. God wants us to prosper. God wants to bless us. But God is God; Creator of the Universe; above all things and we are His creation. God set the standard and we abide by it and we will be blessed, prosper and live. If we ignore God’s standard then we choose death and destruction. God always gives choices. What will your choice be?
