#4161 – These Words

Good morning people who live by God’s Word

Exodus 34:27 Then the Lord said to Moses, “Write down these words, for in accordance with these words I have made a covenant with you and with Israel.”

God’s covenant is not based simply on a good idea. God’s covenant is not based on our desires and what we think should happen. God’s covenant is based on God’s Word; on what God has said.

We cannot expect God to bless what we do if He has not authored it in the first place. God’s blessing and God’s direction comes from God’s Word.

I think the wording of this verse above is very clear and we need to understand it so we can live by it. The phrase that is repeated and is essential is these words – the words God has spoken.

There are many philosophies about life. Much is said and there are many opinions; opinions that sound wonderful and promise great success. But even the wisest man realised his wisdom and understanding did not bring about true success. True success comes from living by every word that comes from the mouth of God.

We need to not compartmentalise our lives. If we are serving faithfully at Church or work and sharing Jesus with people but we have not forgiven the person who hurt us, we are living outside of God’s covenant. We need to follow all of God’s commands, in every area of life.

Enjoy God’s covenant; Enjoy God’s Word.
