God repeatedly calls us to obey His commands. Knowing us like He does, He knows our temptation to depend on ourselves rather than Him, to think that our way is best. As creator, He set guidelines in place to protect and prosper us. As we obey His commands, we find life as He designed it to be lived, and we participate with Him in establishing His kingdom on earth. How will your obedience be a conduit of life to you and others today?
Keep my decrees and laws, for the person who obeys them will live by them. I am the Lord.—Leviticus 18:5
Prayer: Lord, I confess my tendency to wander from Your ways. Forgive me, and create Your heart within me, a heart that longs to hear and obey your commands. May I find life in obedience, and create an environment where others find life through my obedience. In Jesus’ name I pray, amen.
