“I have heard the words these people have spoken to you…If only they had such a heart to fear Me and keep all My commands, so that they and their children will prosper forever.”

Deuteronomy 5: 28-29 HCSB

Yahweh heard the Israelites telling Moses they would follow all the commands God gave Moses for the Israelites, but He knew better than they knew themselves the hearts of these people who had disobeyed so many times. Even still, God gave to Moses specific statutes and commands the Israelites were to follow when they entered the promised land. While God was completely aware the Hebrews would not keep all the commands, He also knew it would point them to their need for Messiah.

Do your own failings drag you into self-loathing, or do they draw you into greater longing to know the Savior all the more, to one day be with Him?🚦
