Fresh Hope – 1st November 2018

You can’t live your own way and expect to experience your best life. Your best life will only come when you follow God’s ways.
If you buy a new appliance, you will need to follow the maker’s instructions to get the best out of that thing… that’s like your life.

Deuteronomy 28 vs 1-2 says this… “if you fully obey the Lord your God and carefully follow all His commands that I give you today, the Lord your God will set you high above all the nations of the earth. All these blessings will come upon you and accompany you if you obey the Lord your God.”

Just like the manufacturers instructions, God has a perfect way for us to live our best life. When we follow His ways and His rules and His commands, they won’t be things that bind us, they will in fact set us free to live our best life.

The following verses go on to say all of the blessings that we will experience
Vs 3. You will be blessed in the city and in the country – in others words, wherever you go, in your car, on foot, on an aeroplane.. He will bless your travels.
Vs 4. The fruit of your womb will be blessed – that’s your family, your children, your spouse…your family will know God’s blessing when you choose to follow God’s plan for your life.
Vs 4/5 Your cattle, your crops, your kneading basket will be blessed – that’s your possessions. They will be blessed!
Vs7. Your enemies will be defeated before you – whatever battle you are in today, or tomorrow, don’t worry… God has blessings on all your battles! You will be victorious.
Vs8. Your barns and everything you put your hand to – that’s your job, your career, your work. It will be blessed!

Today, stop and thank Jesus that you have the opportunity to live your best life.
When I choose to follow God’s ways I can truly say.
“I AM BLESSED.”
