I call heaven and earth to record this day against you, that I set before you life and death, blessing and cursing: therefore choose life that both thou and thy seed may live -Deuteronomy 30:19.
God created us with a free will. This means that we have the choice to choose whether or not we will submit ourselves to God and His Word or choose to live life the way we desire. God has the heart of a father and He yearns for His children to be blessed this is why He has given us instructions through His written Word.
In order to know God you must have a relationship with Him. This comes through reading, studying and submitting to His written instructions for professing Christians. Talk with Him daily through prayer and just talking to Him as your Father and friend. Tell Him about your day, tell Him what bothers you, this is building a relationship.
Your obedience to God’s Word will not only be a blessing to you, but also for your children as well as you household. God is faithful and can’t lie, what He promise that will He do. Cover your children and spouse with prayer, instruct them in the Word of God, don’t quote Scripture and then don’t live by them.
Read and study the Bible, adhere to its instructions and see and receive God’s blessings for you and your family. Disobedience will take the hedge of protection God gives to those who submit to His instructions. God’s blessings comes with enjoyment, Satan blessings will come with torement after you receive them for a length of time. Your obedience is your insurance policy to be with the Lord when death comes to your door,there is life after death, and you don’t want to wakeup in the burning section!
