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.

PRAYER FOR TODAY:

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!

100 PERSONAL WORDS:

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,”

David

  1. I had no prob getting the link. I’m off to church also. We might like to hold Justin in prayer as he has had to cancel his tour plans because of the illness he has had It’s something similar to Bell’s Palsy. Blessings and healing on Justin & his loved ones in Jesus Name. Amen.

  2. Jesus. There’s just something about that name.
    As David said, Father, help us to look to You and be obedient to You. Bless all those who line their lives up with Your eternal ways. Help each of us in this, Lord, in Jesus’s name, amen

    “For here we do not have an enduring city, but we are looking for the city that is to come” (Hebrews 13:14).

        • There’s Something About That Name
          Song by Bill & Gloria Gaither

          Lyrics
          Jesus, Jesus, Jesus; there’s just something about that name.
          Master, Savior, Jesus, like the fragrance after the rain;
          Jesus, Jesus, Jesus, let all Heaven and earth proclaim

          Kings and kingdoms will all pass away,
          But there’s something about that name.
          Kings and kingdoms will all pass away,
          But there’s something about that name.
