Daily Devotional with Pastor Jon

November 16

Thou shalt keep therefore his statutes, and his commandments, which I command thee this day, that it may go well with thee, and with thy children after thee, and that thou mayest prolong thy days upon the earth, which the LORD thy God giveth thee, for ever.

Deuteronomy 4:40

The phrase, “which I command thee this day,” implies that God must be rediscovered each day. Every day we get to rediscover the nature and beauty of our Father. Every day there ought to be a rediscovery of the grace and glory and grandeur of our God.

“Take heed to My Word,” God says. “Rediscover Me each day. Listen to what I have to say once more. Go over the Scriptures, pray them in, think them through, act them out, and it will go well for you and for your family.”

A story is told in the Mishnah (a collection of Jewish teachings and writings) of a certain Persian king named Arteban who sent to Judah, the prince in Jerusalem, the largest known diamond in existence. Upon receiving this gift, Judah sent back to Arteban a copy of the book of Deuteronomy with the accompanying note: What you sent me requires guards to protect it. What I have sent you will guard and protect you.

I’m so thankful for God’s Word because I know, as you do, that it works. When we take heed and do what we’re told to, it goes well with us and with our families, too.
