Guarantee *Deut. 12

Deuteronomy 12
https://www.biblegateway.com/passage/?search=Deuteronomy+12&version=NKJV;NIV
~~~
God wants what is best for His people. He tells them over and over, so there can be no mistake. His instructions are very clear.
~~~
God’s people are about to enter into the Promised Land. Again, the Lord God reminds them if they are willing to follow the way He has prepared for them without adding or taking away anything from what God’s said, then they will be blessed and prosper.
~~~
The points to remember are: Be careful to do as the Lord requires. Remember it is the Lord who brought you here and it is He who is giving this land to you, so don’t forget Him, His way, or His Word. Worship the Lord God of Israel alone. Raise nothing above Him; put Him first. Do not worship the Lord God like pagans worship their gods and idols.
~~~
Go to the Lord and ask Him to lead you to where He would have you worship Him, which church or temple. He will direct your steps. It is there that you should give all your tithes, offerings, sacrifices, special gifts, and vows. By doing this the Lord guarantees His blessings; everything He’s called you to do will be blessed. You and your family will rejoice in everything the Lord has done for you. What an awesome promise God is giving to His people.
~~~
There is one warning, which we all need to heed: Do what is right in the eyes of the Lord God. Do not be wise in your own eyes nor do as you see fit. Instead follow the Lord and He will lead you into your inheritance to dwell in safety and rest.
~~~
God loves His people and wants them to be happy, flourish, and enjoy life. His promise is not to be added too or to be subtracted from. It is exact; exactly how the Lord Almighty wants it to be.

Be Careful *Deut. 11:22-32

Deuteronomy 11:22-32
https://www.biblegateway.com/passage/?search=Deuteronomy+11%3A22-32&version=NKJV;NIV
~~~
God continually warns His people to “be careful” in what they do and how they act. Follow God, the Lord God of Israel and blessings will flow. However, if you choose not to abide by the Bible then blessings are withheld and a curse will follow if you disobey the commands of the Lord your God and turn from His way by following other gods.
~~~
Blessings and curses are set before His people. Warning after warning God gives to be careful about our words and behavior. He longs to bless His people. God is holy and sets a good standard for His people to follow. The standard is for our sake, our benefit, so we can live a blessed life. When we sin – for no one is perfect – quickly repent; ask God’s forgiveness and sin no more. God is gracious, faithful, and ever forgiving of true repentance.

Drought *Deut. 11:3-21

Deuteronomy 11:13-21
https://www.biblegateway.com/passage/?search=Deuteronomy+11%3A13-21&version=NKJV;NIV
~~~
It is factual information, which can be proven, that we have been in a drought for many years – especially this past year, 2016. The water table was very, very low. In 2016, we were in a severe drought. However, since the beginning of 2017 we have had plenty of rain – so much so that now we are coming out of a several year drought. We are no longer have a drought. And why is this?!?! A new leader was elected – one who stands against some of the abominations that were brought in by the past leadership. This ancient Holy Scripture held true to what was written in ancient times and holds true all the way up throughout history to this present time and will continue on into the future.  Thanks be to God!!!
~~~
I marvel at this. When we read the Holy Scriptures and see the hand of God over the pages of history it is one thing, but to actually see and behold the truth with our own eyes that is a whole different experience. I marvel at the Lord God, His power and might, His faithfulness to His Word, which is never failing and unending. Praise be to the Lord God who is worthy of all praise!
~~~
God is good and greatly should be praised.

Even Though *Deut. 10:12-21

Deuteronomy 10:12-21
https://www.biblegateway.com/passage/?search=Deuteronomy+10%3A12-21&version=NKJV;NIV
~~~
Even so, even though, but God…
~~~
God is forgiving and merciful – not just once or twice, not even several times, but infinitely merciful and forgiving. His mercy and grace are endless. This is why we can state the fact that our God, the Lord God of Israel is so kind and generous – deserving of all our thanks and praise.
~~~
There is only one thing The Almighty God asks of His people, and He is very clear, and it is for our own good. what does the Lord your God ask of you but to fear the Lord your God, to walk in obedience to Him, to love Him, to serve the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul, 13 and to observe the Lord’s commands and decrees that I am giving you today for your own good?  (Deut.10:12-13)
~~~
God is good and greatly to be praised.

Be Assured* Deut. 9:1-4

Deuteronomy 9:1-4
https://www.biblegateway.com/passage/?search=Deuteronomy+9%3A1-4&version=NKJV;NIV
~~~
Be assured. All the trials and tribulations that we go through God is leading us. Be assured today that the Lord God, the Mighty One of Israel, goes before us. He ensures our way by going ahead of us. So all we have to do is follow and the victory is ours. The way is not always easy; however all we have to do is trust and follow His leading. “The battle is Mine,” says the Lord. The Lord plows through making our way clear. The battle is whatever opposition comes against us, whether physical, spiritual, or emotional. God is the only One who can ensure success and grant victory. He holds everything in His hands.
~~~
Follow Him and He will make your way straight as Scripture says in Proverbs 3:5-12

Remember *Deut. 8

Deuteronomy 8
https://www.biblegateway.com/passage/?search=Deuteronomy+8&version=NKJV;NIV
~~~
God keeps saying remember what He has done in your past. Be careful to follow every command. Man does not live on bread alone, but on every word that comes from the mouth of God. Jesus said this very same thing in (Matthew 4:4). God humbles, tests, and disciplines His people – whom He dearly loves (that’s us). And why does He do this? God states over and over He tests, disciplines, and allows trials to come our way, so that it might go well with us. It is for our own good; for our benefit. They certainly don’t feel or seem like it at the time, but God is God and He knows best. As the Scripture says: His ways are not our ways; neither are our thought His thoughts. (Isaiah 55:8)
~~~
Remember. Remember. Remember.
~~~
Remember God is the One who gives ability, talents to produce wealth. Do not forget Him or it will not go well for you.

Ask! *Deut. 4:32-40

Deuteronomy 4:32-40
https://www.biblegateway.com/passage/?search=Deuteronomy+4%3A32-40&version=NKJV;NIV
~~~
Ask. Is there anything greater than this! Ask! 32 Ask now about the former days, long before your time, from the day God created man on the earth; ask from one end of the heavens to the other. Has anything so great as this ever happened, or has anything like it ever been heard of? 33 Has any other people heard the voice of God speaking out of fire, as you have, and lived? 34 Has any god ever tried to take for himself one nation out of another nation, by testings, by signs and wonders, by war, by a mighty hand and an outstretched arm, or by great and awesome deeds, like all the things the Lord your God did for you in Egypt before your very eyes?
~~~
Acknowledge today and take to heart that the Lord is God in heaven and on earth. There is no other. Keep His decrees and commands, so it will go well with you and your children. And that you may live long in the land the Lord your God is giving you.

~~~
Matthew 7:7-8   “Ask and it will be given to you; seek and you will find; knock and the door will be opened to you. For everyone who asks receives; the one who seeks finds; and to the one who knocks, the door will be opened.
