This verse, and several others in Deuteronomy 10-11 have been lingering in my mind and heart since Thursday…He really doesn’t ask much. I’ll admit the ‘fear’ one puzzles me. It always has. But I am asked to embrace it just as the others. So I will keep on with that that exploration.
The others, though, are easier for me to embrace.
- Walk in his ways
- Love him
- Serve the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul
- Observe the Lord’s commands and decrees
Not all so easy to follow always, but easier to embrace.
I honestly believe He set all this out for us as a roadmap for our own good– a roadmap for true success.
Following all of these should be easy, it sounds easy, but I know it isn’t. When I do serve, though, when I do listen and follow things as instructed, they ultimately turn out better than without Him.
