Open your Bible and please go to Deuteronomy 30:9 – 10. These two verses lay out a blessing based on a condition. As you read think about what these two verses describe.
“The Lord your God will make you abound in all the work of your hand, in the fruit of your body, in the increase of your livestock, and in the produce of your land for good. For the Lord will again rejoice over you for good as He rejoiced over your fathers,”
What did that describe? These verses describe replica actions of God’s creation of the world. Look at the first verse again. “The Lord your God will make you abound in all the work of your hand” God’s work abounded for six days during creation.
Here’s the next part, “in the fruit of your body” The word “fruit” actually means, offspring. In other words, God says that people will be created through us, or from us, of course, we know that means children. God did that too with Adam and Eve.
And then God says, “your livestock and produce will increase in the land.” That’s also a replica of God’s creative power at the moment of creation. God describes us as supernatural beings who blessed with divine power.
Now, look at the condition for amazing blessings to manifest in verse ten.
“If you obey the voice of the Lord your God, to keep His commandments and His statutes which are written in this Book of the Law, and if you turn to the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul.”
If we don’t turn to God and follow His commandments with all our heart, we are not operating as the godly beings mentioned in verse nine.
Now let me show you the law that commands you to prosper as a godly being and why.
Open your Bible to Exodus 20:1. In this verse, God speaks the Ten Commandments to Moses. Most people might know three or four, mainly not to murder, not to commit adultery, and not to steal. They know that if they break one of those Laws they sin.
But what about the other Laws? Do you realize that if we break any of the Ten Commandments we sin? They are immutable, irreversible, infallible, and we CANNOT select certain ones to follow.
Look at commandment number four in verses eight through eleven. This commandment says that we are to “Remember the Sabbath Day and to keep it holy”. Then it continues to describe how we are to work for six days and cease from work on the seventh.
Do you realize what's being commanded here? We’re told to imitate God! God worked for six days, and then God tells us to work for six days. God ceased from work one day, and then we are told to cease from work one day.
When you put this into perspective with the verses of Deuteronomy 30:9 – 10 how do you suppose our work should look like for six days? We should be moving mountains, increasing in every work, and everything we put our hand to should abound in creative power.
We are to live as godly beings!
If we break commandment number four, it’s no different than breaking commandment number seven and committing adultery or number eight and stealing. Remember, we CANNOT pick what commandments to follow they all apply to His creation, us.
We have the privilege of loving and serving God through Jesus Christ who died for us on the cross and who gave us the life of the Holy Ghost.
The Holy Ghost allows us to fulfill each of His Laws perfectly because God cannot break His own law. In fact, His law is what allows us to be more like God. So we need to know them and apply them accordingly if we’re going to live as godly beings.
If you want to go all the way with God's law then you need to follow the Commandments of Jesus. Read them and carefully meditate on each one. Commit them to memory. Make part of your psychology and live them out through your life. Then watch as your mind and life start to change. God bless you.
