He will set you high
Deuteronomy 28:1-2 – If you fully obey the Lord your God and carefully follow all his commands I give you today, the Lord your God will set you high above all the nations on earth. All these blessings will come on you and accompany you if you obey the Lord your God.
Last Sunday one of the men in church shared an encouraging word to our team before the service. Along with this verse, he testified of how serving God in His church has changed his life. Through saying yes to God, God has blessed his family more than ever before.
Every single word he was saying I could wholeheartedly agree with. Serving in church week in and week out has transformed my every day. It has opened too many doors to count. I have seen myself grow and change into someone I never thought I could be. And it’s not because of me and my own doing. It’s because of who He is!
Being in His House, hearing His word and feeling His presence every week automatically sets us up to win in our daily lives. Being able to worship Him and meet and hang out with people who also worship Him every week automatically makes us feel closer to Him. Striving to serve people like how Jesus served us automatically gives us a better vision of who He is.
Do you see the beauty of saying yes to Him? There are so many blessings in obeying His commands. It’s not about following a list rules but rather following who He is and becoming who He wants us to be.
