As I was considering this, I was reminded of the heavenly lockers God has set aside for us. Inside our heavenly lockers God has supply for every need we will ever have. In fact, God has supplied abundantly more than we will ever need. But in order to open heavens lockers, we must enter the right combination.
In Deuteronomy 11 God promised his people strength, a long life, a land flowing with milk and honey, that the Lord our God cares for. The word says, He will give you all you want to eat. Wherever you set foot, that land will be yours. No one will be able to stand against you, for the Lord your God will cause the people to fear and dread you, as he promised, wherever you go.
God promised all of this if we are willing to get the combination right…. God said in Deuteronomy 11:13 “If you carefully obey all the commands I am giving you today, and if you love the Lord your God and serve him with all your heart and soul.”
Our mark is WITH ALL OUR HEART AND SOUL
Just like we were taught as children to do by our earthly parents, likewise, God, our heavenly parent even told us in verse 18 to tie them to our hands and wear them on our forehead as reminders.
I pray we each learn to get the combination with God right on the mark so that God can open up heavens locker of blessings assigned to each of us.
Thanks to Jesus, there is nothing God's love can't do!
