Keep the Word

Oh that my ways may be established (steadfast) To keep (obey)Your statutes (decrees, laws)!  Then I shall not be ashamed When I look upon all Your commandments.
Psalms 119:5‭-‬6 NASB

How do we obey God’s statutes? When we know His commandments and keep them. How do we know them? You must open the word of God and read. Open the word of God and know. Then we obey them.

🌹 Jesus answered and said to him, “If anyone loves Me, he will keep My word; and My Father will love him, and We will come to him and make Our abode with him.  He who does not love Me does not keep My words; and the word which you hear is not Mine, but the Father’s who sent Me.
John 14:23‭-‬24 NASB

Are You Sure That You Are Sure?

If you keep My commandments, you will abide in My love; just as I have kept My Father’s commandments and abide in His love. John 15:10 NASB

Are you abiding in the love of God? Are you following the example of Jesus?

God has a plan. We are either joined with Him in fulfilling that plan or we are against Him and His plan.

There is no straddling the fence. It’s time to

Test yourselves to see if you are in the faith; examine yourselves! Or do you not recognize this about yourselves, that Jesus Christ is in you—unless indeed you fail the test? 2 Corinthians 13:5

🌹At death or Christ’s return, it will be too late to abide in Him, follow and obey.

Be sure.

May Be Well With Us

But this is what I commanded them, saying, ‘Obey My voice, and I will be your God, and you will be My people; and you will walk in all the way which I command you, that it may be well with you.’ Jeremiah 7:23

 Whether it is pleasant or unpleasant, we will listen to the voice of the Lord our God to whom we are sending you, so that it may go well with us when we listen to the voice of the Lord our God.” Jeremiah 42:6

God commands us to obey His voice. How do we hear His voice? Through His Word, prayer, the Holy Spirit, and God’s people. When we study His Word, alongside prayer, under the influence of the Holy Spirit, and the godly counsel and accountability of His people — He is our God and we are His people. When we listen and obey we walk in His way and when we walk in His way it is well with our soul.

Listening is a choice. When we listen intently to the Lord, it is well with us,  whether our lives are pleasant or unpleasant. Obedience to the Lord our God brings well being in all circumstances. Our focus must be intent upon Him and seeking His ways. Whether pleasant or unpleasant we have peace of mind that things are going God’s way and we can trust that He is in control. It is well with my soul.

Walking with Jesus I am made righteous in the sight of God and I will be fruitful in my endeavors, works, resulting in eating the fruit of my actions. It is well with me.

God desires us to have a heart that fears Him and keeps all His commandments always — that it may be well with us. Do you desire to live a life of well being? God desires that for us all. Have a heart that fears Him and keep His commandments.

Continually seeking Him,
