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.
