‘If you fully obey the LORD your God and carefully keep all His commands that I am giving you today, the LORD your God will set you high above all the nations of the world.’ (Deuteronomy 28:1)

We see this principle all over Scripture: God honours obedience. He’s not looming over you – big stick in hand – ready to smack you when you mess up. He’s inviting you into a life of liberating obedience. Because obedience frees you from sin’s consequences, to live life at its best – the way it’s designed to be lived. And God honours you for choosing to obey even when – especially when – no one is watching.

I love the breath-taking views of the Drakensberg. Having been at the bottom and top of the Amphitheatre, I know how vast and amazing they are! There is such a sense of one’s humanity though when standing near the edge.

Mountains are significant in Scripture for God’s people.In Isaiah 54:10 God says “Though the mountains be shaken and the hills be removed, yet my unfailing love for you will not be shaken nor my covenant of peace be removed.” Our Maker keeps His promises to us even during unexpected circumstances. His love can be trusted!

David wrote, ‘As soon as I pray, You answer me.’ (Psalm 138:3) You can face the best of days and the worst of days knowing that, because God never takes His eyes off you, the millisecond you think a prayer, or whisper or sing or cry out to God, He hears you, and He answers. That doesn’t mean He delivers the goods instantaneously or exactly the way you think He should, but He is busy lovingly working out His best plans for you.

If it occurs to you today to reach out to God, don’t put off praying. He longs to hear from you, and He’ll listen and answer without delay.

“Jesus wept” is the shortest verse in the Bible found in John 11:35. It shows the compassionate nature and loving sympathy of Jesus.

His brother James wrote in James 5:10-11, “an example of patience in suffering blessed are those who persevered. You have heard of Job’s perseverance and what God finally brought about. The Lord is full of compassion and mercy”.

God is love, and Jesus showed this throughout His life and ultimately through His death.
Praise and thank God for His aspects of His character today!
