Weekly Reflections from Larry

 

(March 2011) Over 
the 
last 
few 
weeks 
I 
have 
been 
meditating
 on 
a 
word 
out 
of 
Deuteronomy
 11:13, ­14, 
15. “So if
 you 
faithfully
 obey
 the
 commands
 I
 am 
giving 
you
 today―to 
love
 the
 LORD
 your
 God
 and
to
 serve
 him 
with 
all
 your
 heart
 and
 with
 all
 your soul―
then
 I
 will
 send
 rain
 on
 your
 land
 in
 its 
season,
 both 
autumn
 and 
spring 
rains,
 so 
that
 you 
may 
gather 
in 
your 
grain,
 new 
wine
 and 
olive 
oil.”
God
 said 
He
 would 
send the 
rain
 so 
that 
the
 land 
may
 produce 
abundantly. 
God 
said 
it, 
nothing 
can 
do 
anything 
stop 
it, 
right? 

WRONG!

The 
word 
”IF” can
 throw
 a 
wrench 
in
 this 
promise
 from
 God
 to
 come
 to
 pass. God
 has
 set
 forth
 the
 promise l
and
.  He
 will 
ALWAYS
 do 
His
 part
 –
He
 is
 only 
waiting
 on
 us
 to
 do
 ours.
 
 Our
 part
 is 
“faithfully
 obeying
 the 
commands
 given 
and 
to 
serve 
God 
with 
all
our
 heart 
and 
soul!”

Deuteronomy 11:18-19, Fix these words of mine in your hearts and minds; tie them as symbols on your hands and bind them on your foreheads. Teach them to your children, talking about them when you sit at home and when you walk along the road, when you lie down and when you get up.
