Daily Encouragement Day 57 – Deuteronomy 30

Moses concludes his sermons to the people by predicting not only their future captivity among the nations where the Lord would drive them, but also their future repentance and restoration from captivity.  He leaves them with the choice between life and death, good and evil, blessing and cursing, along with the consequences of that choice to love God or to abandon Him.  Moses urges his people to love God, obey His voice, and cling to Him so that they will dwell and prosper in the land.



Lord, You dealt with Israel by relating material benefits and loss to obedience and disobedience.  I realize that in the body of Christ, the blessings for obedience relate more to the fruit of the Spirit than to the fruit of the vine.  Let me walk by Your Spirit and enjoy His benefits.
