This day with God will be amazing as we read Deuteronomy 28 and reflect on the past. As we examine our hopes and dreams for the future and let God take them to a level that we never dreamed of.
Today, we read about the blessings to expect from obedience to God’s Word. Families, communities, and whole nations will flourish if people live the way God instructs. There will be good crops and livestock will have plenty to eat along the countryside. The economy will provide plenty for all and the people will be secure. Any enemies will flee because of fear. Other nations will look up to our leadership and want to emulate.
On the other hand, there will be hard times if not we are not obedient to God’s way. This includes drought, plagues, sickness, confusion, and lawlessness. Other nations will have no respect and begin to take over our land.
Think of the possibilities if we went to God more and followed His plan for us. Imagine all the people obeying this plan. Cities are crime free, the countryside thriving with lush grass for livestock, and crops are flourishing as the time of harvest nears.
Small towns are bourgeoning into communities filled with young children being shaped into the leaders of tomorrow. Other nations looking up to us and ready to listen. To follow God’s direction so His plan would spread across the world.
This day, let us dream big, picture in our mind how to make these dreams happen, and pray for direction for them to transpire. Lord, if we desire to follow Your way, then we have found the way to paradise. We have all we need to fulfill the destiny You have for us which is a future of endless possibilities. Amen.
