Scripture and a Snapshot: Faithful Obedience.





Understand, therefore, that the LORD your God is indeed God. He is the faithful God who keeps his covenant for a thousand generations and lavishes his unfailing love on those who love him and obey his commands. 
-Deuteronomy 7:9

Now may the God of peace make you holy in every way, and may your whole spirit and soul and body be kept blameless until our Lord Jesus Christ comes again. God will make this happen, for he who calls you is faithful.  
-1 Thessalonians 5:23-2

This week I was feeling very distant from God and trying to figure out what to do about it. Eventually I decided to look up verses that talk about God's faithfulness. They revived my spirit like only the word of God can do. God has encouraged and challenged me to remain faithful to him and obey all of his commands. It really is simple. If we follow God's commands and love him, he'll pour out his infinite love on us.

Such a wonderful post and something I needed to hear. I feel distant from God at times, as well. Sometimes the daily activities of this world can make us distant. Thanks so much for this.
