TODAY’S SOUL-LIFTING SCRIPTURE of Thursday, January 27, 2022.
New Living Translation:
“You must serve only the Lord your God. If you do, I will bless you with food and water, and I will protect you from illness.”
“You shall serve [only] the Lord your God, and He shall bless your bread and water. I will also remove sickness from among you.”
Contemporary English Version:
“Worship only me, the Lord your God! I will bless you with plenty of food and water and keep you strong.”
Beloved, the basic and fundamental point here is for you to serve God wholeheartedly; don’t be begged or forced to worship Him, so that you will not miss out of His blessings. Let your desire for your entire lifetime be to serve the one and true God. Great promises of comfort of your food, the continuance of your health, increase in wealth and long life are yours only if you fulfill the condition of worship your God. If you eat and well nourished, refreshed, grow, preserved, have comfort, or be in good and perfect health, etc, they are God’s blessings which He gives to His own. No sickness, disease, distress or trouble will have dominion over you, they may come but you will overcome, because the Lord said so.
