In Egypt, hieroglyphics can be found on many pillars and walls, telling the history of the ancient Egyptians and of the gods they worshipped.

Key Verse: Leviticus 26:45

But for their sake I will remember the covenant of their ancestors, whom I brought out of the land of Egypt in the sight of the nations, that I might be their God: I am the Lord.


Today’s reading is exhilarating for the obedient believer, but it should strike fear into the hearts of the disobedient. In our two-year journey through the Bible, we will shortly come to the book of Judges, and the books of 1 & 2 Kings. Over and over, the truth of this 26th chapter of Leviticus is proven. Repent, call upon the Lord, obey, and we are blessed. Rebel, turn away from God in disobedience, and we lose out in every area of life. Paul quotes from Leviticus 26:12 in 2 Corinthians 6:16. Read a New Testament lesson which confirms the eternal truth of God’s Word (2 Corinthians 6:14-18). Yes, God remembers His first covenant with Israel, and He remembers His New Covenant with believers in Jesus. The old hymn says, “Trust and obey, for there’s no other way, to be happy in Jesus, but to trust and obey.” Check out all the words of this hymn here.


Lord God, You’ve laid it out so clearly. When I obey You, I am blessed, and when I disobey, I remove myself away from Your protection. It’s not Your fault Lord; it’s my fault. Please grant me the grace of obedience, I pray. In Jesus’ Name, Amen!


Pattie Mallette is the mother of the extremely popular singer, Justin Bieber. As a teen, Pattie ended up in a hospital in Stratford, Ontario, following a failed suicide attempt. There she was visited often by a local pastor, and one day he brought her a rose, telling her, “God sees you beautiful like this rose.” It was exactly what she needed to hear. Her life was turned around. Later, this teen turned back briefly to the old life, became pregnant with Justin, and then returned permanently to the Lord in repentance and faith. Pattie has testified several times on the 100 Huntley Street telecast (here is a link to her most recent interview – note that it’s in two parts).

Yours to encourage us all to “Trust and Obey,”

  1. God desires obedience so that He does not have to turn His head away from us in our sin.He desires that we trust in His laws as written ‘in our hearts’ because he knows they are what’s best for us,the same as an earthly father with his children.
    I’ve tried everything but the link for the video won’t play on my ‘puter.God bless

    Trust Me (GM)

    Trust Me,I know what I am doing,
    It’s not just your heart I am wooing
    But your soul is so dear to Me,
    I want you with Me for eternity.

    Even when your days are very bad,
    I share the load that makes you sad,
    So do not be angry with Me,
    You must trust in Me eternally.

    I love all my children most dearly,
    And in life I see you clearly,
    That is why you are on the Earth,
    It is a school and the grave is your birth.

    ‘I knew you before you were born’,
    I would never leave you forlorn,
    I know every hair on your head,
    Death is not for you to dread.

    Life is through my precious Son,
    A reward for when your day is done,
    So know that this is my gift to you
    And trust in Him your life through.
    G W (Bill) Marshall/.2011

  2. I remember hearing Patties testimony, she also was on the couch of the circle of women with Ann Mainse as the host of that series. I think Just joined them on the couch.

    God is so good, He reaches down to the lowest; He brought me out of the miry clay and set me on the Kings Highway. Praise His holy name!! Amen and Amen!

  3. I’m going in for heart valve surgery tomorrow Oct. 17; would appreciate you prayers for the Lord’s intervention. thanks!

    • Praying for God’s presence during your heart valve surgery tomorrow dear Irene. Was watching the Dr.Oz show last week and apparently he has invented a clamp for the valve in our hearts which replaces previous procedures. Praying for a quick recovery also:-).
      I’m a believer but sometimes it takes time for the ‘obedient’ to kick in.
      God bless you and all saints.

        • Irene, praying for the Lord to be with all medical staff during the surgery and we Thank the Lord for complete healing for you. Lord we lift up your dear child Irene and we thank You Lord for watching over her and helping her heal. ion Jesus Name we Pray amen

      • Thanks Lynda for sharing;
        Had that experience also; takes time for the obedient BUT THEN I Heard God`s voice saying “ok, now you understand me and you are`going to be ok, that`s when I realized that I needed to do something right away! It took me years to figure it out! SO THANKFUL WE HAVE A GOD THAT FORGIVES US OUR SINS WHEN WE REPENT! Can`t imagine it any other Way!

  4. Stratford Perth Museum
    Justin Bieber exhibit – Steps to Stardom
    Open February 18, 2018, extended until at least October 2018
    If you go to the above web site you can see the whole account of Justin – from the Avon steps playing his guitar to where he is now – amazing. He also attended Jubilee Christian Fellowship here as young boy

  5. Praying for you Irene for your surgery. I have a new tissue aeorta valve now for five years and you probably remember that time. I will never forget how you all prayed for me and how it helped me so much. The Lord gave me the strength and grace for each phase of the operation. Pray you will experience the same Irene. God bless you and keep you. The Lord taught me that He is enough for every situation we go through.
