” The LORD shall establish thee an holy people unto himself, as he hath sworn unto thee, if thou shalt keep the commandments of the LORD thy God, and walk in his ways. “
Deut 28:9 (KJV)
Sometimes, we promise to do some things for people on the basis that they would give something in return. Usually, the one making the promise is more endowed than the one being promised. Such is the case in our passage today. God makes so many promises and He is capable of fulfilling them but it is as we fulfil our part of the bargain. Undoubtedly, God will keep to His promises. It is humans who usually fail on their parts.
God our Father expects that we fully obey Him in all things and be careful in doing all that He has asked us to do (v. 1). We must not be careless or uncaring about the things of God. Obedience to God is not just doing things because you have been told to do it. Rather, it is doing it heartily because you love and serve the Lord (Colossians 3:23-24). You can be established as God’s child today if you will determine to obey Him at all times.
