Knowing JESUS Daily Devotional | September 18, 2020 | LESSONS FROM PSALMS | Oh that my people had hearkened unto me, and Israel had walked in my ways! I should soon have subdued their enemies, and turned my hand against their adversaries. The haters of the LORD should have submitted themselves unto him: but their time should have endured for ever. He should have fed them also with the finest of the wheat:and with honey out of the rock should I have satisfied thee. – Psalms 81:13-16

Dearly beloved, always remember, God loves you so much and you are very dear to Him, because of your acceptance of Jesus, His begotten Son.

Eph 1:4 — Eph 1:6 According as he hath chosen us in him before the foundation of the world, that we should be holy and without blame before him in love: Having predestinated us unto the adoption of children by Jesus Christ to himself, according to the good pleasure of his will, To the praise of the glory of his grace, wherein he hath made us accepted in the beloved.
1Jo 3:1 — 1Jo 3:2 Behold, what manner of love the Father hath bestowed upon us, that we should be called the sons of God: therefore the world knoweth us not, because it knew him not. Beloved, now are we the sons of God, and it doth not yet appear what we shall be: but we know that, when he shall appear, we shall be like him; for we shall see him as he is.

Because of this, relationship you have with Him through Jesus, He wants to lavish His treasures on you now and at eternity.

Psalms 36:8 They shall be abundantly satisfied with the fatness of thy house; and thou shalt make them drink of the river of thy pleasures.

But then, beloved, the Bible says the things that were written in the Bible are meant for your admonition in particular.

Romans 15:4 For whatsoever things were written aforetime were written for our learning, that we through patience and comfort of the scriptures might have hope.
1 Corinthians 10:11 Now all these things happened unto them for ensamples: and they are written for our admonition, upon whom the ends of the world are come.

Beloved, you would have discovered that some saints both in the old and new testaments, were specially favoured.

But then, these did not happened to them automatically, they enjoyed these unique privileges, because they determindly and unashamedly hearkened to God in all things and at all times.

Mal 3:16 — Mal 3:17 Then they that feared the LORD spake often one to another: and the LORD hearkened, and heard it, and a book of remembrance was written before him for them that feared the LORD, and that thought upon his name. And they shall be mine, saith the LORD of hosts, in that day when I make up my jewels; and I will spare them, as a man spareth his own son that serveth him.

Beloved God is set to favour you too with unusual earthly and eternal blessings. But you must live a lifetime, lifestyle of hearkening to Him, in all things and at all times.
See what the Bible says.

Deu 28:1 — Deu 28:2 And it shall come to pass, if thou shalt hearken diligently unto the voice of the LORD thy God, to observe and to do all his commandments which I command thee this day, that the LORD thy God will set thee on high above all nations of the earth: And all these blessings shall come on thee, and overtake thee, if thou shalt hearken unto the voice of the LORD thy God.
Exo 15:26 And said, If thou wilt diligently hearken to the voice of the Lord thy God, and wilt do that which is right in his sight, and wilt give ear to his commandments, and keep all his statutes, I will put none of these diseases upon thee, which I have brought upon the Egyptians: for I am the Lord that healeth thee.
Deu 11:13 — Deu 11:15 And it shall come to pass, if ye shall hearken diligently unto my commandments which I command you this day, to love the LORD your God, and to serve him with all your heart and with all your soul, That I will give you the rain of your land in his due season, the first rain and the latter rain, that thou mayest gather in thy corn, and thy wine, and thine oil. And I will send grass in thy fields for thy cattle, that thou mayest eat and be full.
Isa 55:1 — Isa 55:3 Ho, every one that thirsteth, come ye to the waters, and he that hath no money; come ye, buy, and eat; yea, come, buy wine and milk without money and without price. Wherefore do ye spend money for that which is not bread? and your labour for that which satisfieth not? hearken diligently unto me, and eat ye that which is good, and let your soul delight itself in fatness. Incline your ear, and come unto me: hear, and your soul shall live; and I will make an everlasting covenant with you, even the sure mercies of David.
Proverbs 1:33 But whoso hearkeneth unto me shall dwell safely, and shall be quiet from fear of evil.

Beloved you can not envy or follow after the attitude of the children of Israel. They were not able to get the best God had for them. They drank water from the rock, but failed to be satisfied with honey from the rock,, because they refused adamantly to hearken unto the Lord. See it.

Psa 81:13 — Psa 81:16 Oh that my people had hearkened unto me, and Israel had walked in my ways! I should soon have subdued their enemies, and turned my hand against their adversaries.
The haters of the LORD should have submitted themselves unto him: but their time should have endured for ever. He should have fed them also with the finest of the wheat:and with honey out of the rock should I have satisfied thee.

Beloved it is very very unfortunate today that globally in the universal church of Christ, this shameful attitude is the order of the day.

Majority of so called believers think, they could placate God with sacrifices of thithes and offerings, and seed sowings, while living in flagrant wilful disobedience.

Never ever forget, don’t bother to give God anything when you are not willing to be obedient to Him, implicitly in all things and at all times. There is not going to be any reward.

1Sa 15:22 — 1Sa 15:23 And Samuel said, Hath the LORD as great delight in burnt offerings and sacrifices,
as in obeying the voice of the LORD? Behold, to obey is better than sacrifice, and to hearken than the fat of rams. For rebellion is as the sin of witchcraft,and stubbornness is as iniquity and idolatry.Because thou hast rejected the word of the LORD, he hath also rejected thee from being king.

Dearly beloved, I want you in particular to sincerely examine yourself. Are you not cut up in this web?

You answer should be affirmative no. But if it is yes. Please repent because of the fearsome consequences associated with it here on earth and also at eternity. None of these shall never be your portion in Jesus name.

Lev 26:21 And if ye walk contrary unto me, and will not hearken unto me; I will bring seven times more plagues upon you according to your sins.
Lev 26:23 — Lev 26:24 And if ye will not be reformed by me by these things, but will walk contrary unto me; Then will I also walk contrary unto you, and will punish you yet seven times for your sins.
Lev 26:27 — Lev 26:30 And if ye will not for all this hearken unto me, but walk contrary unto me; Then I will walk contrary unto you also in fury; and I, even I, will chastise you seven times for your sins. And ye shall eat the flesh of your sons, and the flesh of your daughters shall ye eat. And I will destroy your high places, and cut down your images, and cast your carcases upon the carcases of your idols, and my soul shall abhor you.
