We have been told by God to obey his commandments. Will that do us any good when we eagerly anticipate for this month to bring some sort of solution. This newsletter will quote some of the benefits of obeying his decrees.
1. To live long and enjoy life
Most of us would like to live long and have a good life. The Lord promises you this day that if you obey his commandments you would have a long and good life (Deuteronomy 6:2)
2. To prosper in the land where he has kept you
God gives us a wonderful assurance that wherever you go he will be with you and make you prosper in the land you reside. You may be born and brought up in some place and but residing in a different place. The Lord says to you he is here to make you prosper in the place where you are (verse 3). The deeds of your hand would be blessed if only you do what he commands you to do.
3. To be free from slavery
When you accept Jesus Christ as your Savior, he liberates you from the slavery and makes you a free person. The slavery may include anger, jealousy, hatred, etc. Therefore, be careful that you do not forget the Lord, who brought you out of slavery (verse 12).
4. For the things to go well with you
You must do what is right and good in the Lords sight (verse 18).
5. To protect our lives
Each day is filled with known and unknown dangers in the form of friends and foes. The Lord who knows every move made by us will protect us from the perils and the plots of the enemy (verse 24).
7. To flourish in the city, build houses filled with all kinds of good thingsThe Lord also promises you that you may build houses and grant you all the good things (verse 10).
All the above promises will come true in your life only when you obey and do what he asks you to do. Walk righteously and everyday analyze yourself if the ways of your life is pleasing before God.
