Deuteronomy 13:4

New Life Version (NLV)

4 Follow the Lord your God and fear Him. Keep His Laws, and listen to His voice. Work for Him, and hold on to Him.
A commandment in the Hebrew text is defined as to command, charge, give orders, lay charge, give charge to, order, to lay charge upon. God is placing a charge on your life. This is something that is required of you. He wants you to follow Him and reverence Him. He wants you be watchful and listen to Him. He wants you to take charge of the moment and worship Him only. I think one of the easiest things we can do is to listen to the Lord but at the same time I think we make it one of the hardest things. Why? Because we want to do our own things.
God desires that we would listen to Him. When we tune our ears into what God is saying, He will always cause us to be blessed. The command is not always about doing something big, rather it is just to sit and listen. Once we listen to what He desires, it’s up to us to act on it. Our job is to listen. This is a command… Keep His laws and listen to His voice… God had Moses write this so the people would understand what was required of them. This still pertains to you and I. We need to hold fast to what God is speaking. We need to be so directed of Him that He does not have to repeat Himself.
In a job, people are asked to do things constantly. Sometimes we don’t have to be asked to do something, because we already know what to do. Why? Because the plan and job description have already been laid out. This is true when it comes to God and His Word. He has laid out our job description. We just need to execute it. We need to be ready to work. Just like anything else there will always be a job which we will need to do.
Scripture Study: John 8:31-41
Be Blessed!

  1. Paul says:

    The Lord bless you Pastor Phil yes thats true one of the hardest things to do is sit and listen, I guess it was easier in our grandfathers day, they had less of everything. We have to much of everything, sitting still is tough, but physically it can be the most rewarding, and spiritually empowering too.
