Today’s Reading: Leviticus 26
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 Leviticus 26 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. 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.”
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:
In October, 2012, a beautiful teen girl named Amanda from British Columbia took her life after being harassed on the Internet. I recall another teen who tried to kill herself but failed. I’m referring to Pattie, the mother of pop singer, Justin Bieber. Pattie ended up in a hospital in Stratford, Ontario. 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. She also has just published a book which tells the story. It can be purchased at our Crossroads e-store.
