You shall walk in all the ways which the Lord your God has commanded you, that you may live and that it may be well with you, and that you may prolong your days in the land which you shall possess. ~ Deuteronomy 5:33 (NKJV)
The Old Testament laws were put into place for those who could not follow God’s way of life. They were for those who took it upon themselves to make their own decisions separated from God. And for those who could not put their trust in the one true God! They would need a set of rules to follow, but they would not follow them, they were stubborn! And what they didn’t realize was God’s way was the right way! His way would allow them to live long and prosper!
When we are separated from God and choose to do things our own way all we get is temporary pleasure, and in the end, all it brings us is frustration, emptiness and death!
When we choose to trust God and start a relationship with His Son Jesus Christ, we will begin to do things God’s way and will no longer live for ourselves. Christ will live in us! We will live by faith in the son of God, and it is only through Christ that we will know right from wrong and how we should live.
As Paul the Apostle would say, “I have been crucified with Christ; it is no longer I who live, but Christ lives in me; and the life which I now live in the flesh I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave Himself for me.” ~ Galatians 2:20 (NKJV)
Oh, taste and see that the Lord is good; Blessed is the man who trusts in Him! ~ Psalms 34:8 (NKJV)
You do not know what will happen tomorrow. For what is your life? It is even a vapor that appears for a little time and then vanishes away. ~ James 4:14 (NKJV)
Trust in The Lord, you will find He is indeed good! Do it today, before it’s too late! Depend on Jesus let Him show you the way! Live a blessed life, live long and prosper!
thank you for providing all who put their trust in you a way to live long and prosper! Your way is the right way! Your way is the only way! Thank you for your Son, thank you for the book of life. Thank you for your blessings, and the day to day lessons we learn when we put our trust in you! You are the one true God! Thanks for everything! In Jesus name amen!
