God’s Word?

Micah 2:7, “You who are named the house of Jacob: “Is the Spirit of the Lord restricted? are these His doings? Do not My words do good to him who walks uprightly?””

            ‘Do not My words do good to him who walks uprightly?’ God asked the Israelites that question over 2000 years ago and that question still applies today. Consider the scriptures below Proverbs 4:20-23, God is again encouraging us to pay attention to His words and in these scriptures, God calls His words medicine. All throughout the Bible, we see God encouraging us to not just read but to uphold His words, and we fail to do so time and again.

Proverbs 4:20-23, “My son, give attention to my words; incline your ear to my sayings. Do not let them depart from your eyes; keep them in the midst of your heart; for they are life to those who find them, and health to all their flesh. Keep your heart with all diligence, for out of it spring the issues of life.”

Deuteronomy 30:19-20, “I call heaven and earth as witnesses today against you, that I have set before you life and death, blessing and cursing; therefore choose life, that both you and your descendants may live; that you may love the Lord your God, that you may obey His voice, and that you may cling to Him, for He is your life and the length of your days; and that you may dwell in the land which the Lord swore to your fathers, to Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob, to give them.”

            In context, the Deuteronomy verses are talking about the Law of Moses. God had told them the blessings and the curses of obeying verses not obeying His word. For us today since we are not under the law, choosing life would be experiencing the life of God and death would be not experiencing His life and being vulnerable to the devil and his attacks. So, what God is telling us today is that keep His word and follow Him because He has more for us. But the important part is that we get to choose His life or death. That is on us.
