Obey & Leave The Consequences To God

May I say, we are to obey God and leave all the consequences to Him. ["Now therefore, if you will indeed obey My voice and keep My covenant, then you shall be a special treasure to Me above all people; for all the earth is Mine." EXODUS 19:5] What an amazing thing to be called the "special treasure" of God! Obedience brings blessing, and far more blessing than we can imagine. The Bible says in Genesis 15 and 17, that God made a covenant with Abraham, promising to make his descendants into a great nation. Here that promise is being realized as God restates His agreement with the Israelite nation, the descendants of Abraham.
In verse eight of the text above; the people promised to obey Him. But the good intentions of the people quickly wore off, and they soon were back living in disobedience. The question for today child of God is this; When you placed your trust in Christ and received Him as your Lord and Savior, did you not at that time commit your heart to Him? Did you not commit to follow Him no mater what? The bottom line for you and me is this; are we holding up to our end of the bargain? You think about that, and I will to.

The Law Of Sowing

You reap what you sow, more than you sow, and latter than you sow. [ "Do not be deceived, God is not mocked; for whatever a man sows, that he will reap." GALATIANS 6:7] This principle applies to everyone, both Christians and non-Christians alike. This principle is irrevocable; there is no escape, either for the believer or for the unbeliever. It is a law of life. May I say, every action has results. If you sow to please self, you'll reap a crop of sorrow and evil. If you sow to please God, you'll reap joy and everlasting life. The fact that we reap what we sow is good news for those who sow good habits, but a frightening thought for those currently involved in ungodly activities. We cannot sow crabgrass and expect to reap pineapples. We cannot sow disobedience to God and expect to reap His blessing. What we sow we reap. Let us not deceive ourselves; we will reap the harvest of our lives. What kind of seeds are you sowing friend?
