OBEDIENCE AND INTIMACY – THE KEY TO GOD'S MIRACULOUS ABUNDANCE

Today’s Reading: Deuteronomy 5:22 – 6:3.





In the above scripture, Moses had just finished summarizing the 10 commandments, and other laws to the children of Israel. The communication between God and the children of Israel came with lots of thundering and special effects as it were. The people were frightened as they never had that kind of experience before.


The fear drove them to distance themselves from God and rather opted to hear from God through Moses. The lack of intimacy made them not really understand who God is. In the wilderness, they opted for an alternative god when Moses was up on the mountain with God. They made Aaron mould a golden calf as an alternative to God. The Bible says to draw near to God, and He will draw near to you. (James 4 vs 8) Do not wait until church service day, to hear what God will say through the pastor. You have equal and direct access to God, but we must come boldly in faith. (Hebrews 4 vs 16).


God yearns for us to get intimate with Him, in reverential fear, and He will help us understand His ways. The closer we get to Him, the less likely we are to commit sin. No good child likes to offend his parents. He will do everything to please them and each time he offends them, he goes back in repentance crying for forgiveness. This is what God desires of us. It makes it easier to get our prayers answered. We are less likely to be troubled or stressed because we know He is in control of every situation in our lives.

We are also less likely to fear, especially in the current economic situation we find ourselves. If you have not given your life to Jesus, you need to ask for forgiveness and ask our Lord Jesus Christ to come into your life today. That is the starting point of getting intimate with God.
