I call heaven and earth to witness this day against you that I have set before you life and death, the blessings and the curses; therefore choose life, that you and your descendants may live. Deuteronomy 30:19
For thus saith the Lord unto the house of Israel, Seek ye me, and ye shall live: Amos 5:4
Both these verses are being addressed to the Israelites or the house of Israel by the Lord God Himself. The first verse was mentioned to them during the beginning of their journey and the other verse in the middle of their journey to the Promised Land of Canaan. There is something common in both these verses:
IN ORDER TO LIVE THEY HAD TO CHOOSE LIFE!
This day the Lord is giving this verse to you and me as well!! Years come and go; and our lives go on until the Maker commands its return. 2019 — He led us through wonderfully; provided all our needs more than our asking and thinking, fought every battle for us, and led us in every step of the way!! Even for 2020, we have to seek God for guidance.
How should we seek Him?
So I directed my attention to the Lord God to seek Him by prayer and supplications, with fasting, sackcloth and ashes. I prayed to the LORD my God and confessed and said, “O Lord, the great and awesome God, who keeps His covenant and extends lovingkindness toward those who love Him and keep His commandments, Daniel 9:3-4
Why should we seek Him?
[If you obey the commandments of the Lord your God which] I command you today, to love the Lord your God, to walk in His ways, and to keep His commandments and His statutes and His ordinances, then you shall live and multiply, and the Lord your God will bless you in the land into which you go to possess. Deuteronomy 30:16
This New Year, let us decide to seek God because all those who seek Him, will find Him. Preserve the life of testimony, authority that God has given you and His righteousness in your life. Jesus is coming to take away the chaste virgin waiting for Him!
May God help us! ❤️
