Scripture: Deuteronomy 30.  

OBSERVATION
(Key verses)

Deuteronomy 30:6 (NLT)

6 “The LORD your God will change your heart and the hearts of all your descendants, so that you will love him with all your heart and soul and so you may live!

APPLICATION
(How Can I apply what God is saying here to my life today?)

God’s mercy is unbelievable. It goes far beyond what we can imagine. Even if the Jews deliberately walked away from him and ruined their lives, God would still take them back. God would give them inward spiritual renewal. I found this chapter very rewarding and encouraging as I was reminded about how awesome my God is. God wants to forgive us and bring us back to himself, too. It is so unfortunate that some of us will not learn this until our world has crashed in around us. Then the sorrow and pain seem to open our eyes to what God has been saying all along. How is it with you friend, are you separated from God by sin? No matter how far you have wandered, God promises a fresh beginning if only you will turn to Him. The Israelites had done some pretty awful things, even under circumstances when God was providing for their every need. Yet He told them that He would change their hearts so that they would love Him with every fiber of their being. Friends that is unconditional love that only a Savior could provide. For those that can join me in celebration today, I believe that you will agree that this is the kind of love that our Savior showed us on the cross, and that He continues to show us, who are oh so unworthy, every day. Perhaps some may read this that have never met my Lord, but would like to know more about this unconditional love, please write to me at the email listed below and allow me to introduce you.

PRAYER
(What I will ask of God, in order for me to properly apply His Word to my life)

Lord Jesus, thank You for loving me so much that You gave. Thank You for demonstrating your love for me in so many ways. Thank You for showing me in this passage of Scripture today that You would continue tugging on my heart and reminding me of Your love so that I might stay close to You. Please remind me often of this so that I may never lose hope when life may otherwise tend to feel empty. You are my Rock and my Inspiration. Please guide me to someone who needs to know You today.
