Daily Words of Encouragement
By Priest Knight Scopas Juma Kamonde
Our Verse of Today (10/11/2017)
“Walk in obedience to all that the Lord your God has commanded you, so that you may live and prosper and prolong your days in the land that you will possess.” (Deuteronomy 5: 33)
The Title of Our Today’s Topic: Blessings of Obeying God’s Word
The previous verse was said by Prophet Moses to the Israelites when he was urging them to keep God’s commands faithfully throughout their life before they entered the Promised Land so that they might live and prosper and prolong their days in the land that they would possess.
From our verse of today we can learn these very important and valuable points as blessings or rewards for obeying God’s word:
1. Having the privilege to Live instead of dying from; diseases, hunger and war in case of committing sins.
2. Having the privilege to Prosper in what we do or have based on God’s blessings upon us due to our obedience to His word.
3. Having the privilege to Prolong our days by living as long as possible as we can as a result of God’s favor upon us through; good health, conducive living conditions and peaceful or stable community around us.
My dear fellow Christians, since we have chosen to worship the Almighty God, let us worship Him in spirit and truth; faithfully, seriously and throughout our life – why? So that we may; live, prosper and prolong our days wherever we are.
