“Do what is right and good in the Lord’s sight, so all will go well with you.” Deuteronomy 6:18a
Here we find Moses speaking the words of the Lord to the children of Israel. The Jews could become rather stiff necks and agitated when things didn’t go quite the way they anticipated. If you doubt that read about when Moses led them to the edge of the Red Sea (Exodus 14:1-31). What was their reaction? Do you know anyone like that? Are you like that? You are not bound for hell if you doubt God. Acknowledge your weakness and seek the Spirit’s help to correct this flaw. God has never failed. He doesn’t attempt to do something; he simply does it. Therefore, it’s incredibly important for us as children of God to do that which is right in the sight of the Lord.
The way to be pleasing to the Lord is to commit yourself to living a life according to what he has deemed to be good, just, righteous behavior in this sin sick world. Be led by his word and do what you know to be right and you will never fail.
We live in perilous times. Times when terrorists, in the name of God, slaughter innocent men, women and children for not believing as they do. In the face of such great evil, do what is right and good in God’s sight. Never turn your back on the Lord, for only he can forgive sin and lead us to our eternal destination. These pawns of Satan shall be victorious for a time, but will fall in the end. The will of God shall triumph over all evil when the trump sounds and time is no more. Stand for God. Live a righteous life with the help of the Holy Spirit and you shall be counted among the blessed of God. Until next time, walk with the King and be a blessing!
