Good afternoon y’all. Please accept my apologies. I didn’t get a chance to post yesterdays blog. Here it is.
We are studying Leviticus 25.
My main verses for this chapter are verses 18 – 22
“If you want to live securely in the land, follow my decrees and obey my regulations. Then the land will yield large crops, and you will eat your fill and live securely in it. But you might ask, ‘What will we eat during the seventh year, since we are not allowed to plant or harvest crops that year?’ Be assured that I will send my blessing for you in the sixth year, so the land will produce a crop large enough for three years. When you plant your fields in the eighth year, you will still be eating from the large crop of the sixth year. In fact, you will still be eating from that large crop when the new crop is harvested in the ninth year”.(Leviticus 25:18-22 NLT)
God is telling us that if we want to live an abundant life and enjoy all He has for us, we must follow and obey Him. I’m reminded of Joshua 1:8 and Isaiah 1:19
“Study this Book of Instruction continually. Meditate on it day and night so you will be sure to obey everything written in it. Only then will you prosper and succeed in all you do”.(Joshua 1:8 NLT)
“If you are willing and obedient, you shall eat the good of the land” (Isaiah 1:19 ESV)
The only sure way to live a fulfilled prosperous successful life is by doing things God’s way. Spending time with Him in prayer and the word, and obeying His instructions.
God told them not to worry about what to eat for the sabbath year. He promised abundance of blessings; and that they will have enough to survive for three years.
God is a faithful and good God. He knows our need and if we trust and obey Him, He will always make sure we never lack anything and have more than enough. He doesn’t give instructions and not provide means for us to obey them.
I guess the big issue for most of us is trust. ‘Will God really do what He said?’, we may ask, or ‘What if God doesn’t come through? I’d better make other plans…’, those are the kind of throughts running through our minds most of the time if we are honest with ourselves. But in this chapter we see God assuring them He will definately provide for them. God is a promise keeping God. He watches over His word to fulfil it. He has been proven and tested to be a God who is reliable and dependable.
So let’s do away with doubt and really hold on to God’s word and believe Him to meet all our needs no matter how small or big they may be.
