God’s Word Is Timeless

Although this was Moses’ instruction specifically to the children of Israel, it is a timeless truth that we can apply in our lives. Think of this verse in light of our country’s state right now. 

Deuteronomy 11:22-23 says, “For if you carefully keep all these commandments which I command you to do—to love the Lord your God, to walk in all His ways, and to hold fast to Him—then the Lord will drive out all these nations from before you, and you will dispossess greater and mightier nations than yourselves.”

The promise was conditional. These were Jesus’ words to His disciples. Again, it is a timeless word that we must take to heart as well. Consider it like a thermometer. Stick this in your heart and see what your temperature of love registers.

It says, “He who has My commandments and keeps them, it is he who loves Me. And he who loves Me will be loved by My Father, and I will love him and manifest Myself to him.” I believe the manifestation comes through our intimate communion with Him. 

He reveals His multifaceted character as we delight in His delighting in us. He also reveals Himself in ways we have never known Him in the crucible of our trials. He suffered for us, so He knows how to comfort us in our time of need.

Every blood bought child of God is kept by His love. Nothing can separate us from it. However, He makes Himself known to those who spend time with Him through His word~keeping it or holding fast to it. In Ephesians 3:19 Paul wrote about experientially embracing His love.
