GOD’S WORDS HAVE PURPOSE

Deuteronomy 28:15: All These Curses

Just as God promises to bless His people if they obey His commands, so also is the opposite true. The Israelites experience this firsthand throughout the rest of the biblical account of their history.

And doesn’t this idea hold true for us still today? True, difficulties emerge from the grip of sin on the world and from Satan’s attacks against us. But sometimes the hardship can originate from our own self-generated disobedience to God. When we’re continually hitting roadblocks on our daily walk, we may want to ask God if there is any part of our lives that needs to be given over to His will and His way. This is how those who are in bondage to besetting sins can repent, be forgiven, and be released into abundant living.
