“Oh that they had such a heart as this always, to fear me and to keep all my commandments, that it might go well with them and with their descendants forever!” Deuteronomy 5:29
It is always the desire of God’s heart for us His children to be faithful to Him. He wants our hearts to be attuned to Him always. He desires for us to have the holy fear of the Lord so that we will not sin. And He wants us to keep His commandments so that we will not walk astray from the bright path He has made for us and the purpose which He has prepared in advance for us to do.
God is such a loving Father to have this wonderful longing towards us. And indeed, He desires us to be faithful for our very sakes: that it might go well with us and our descendants forever! Who doesn’t like everything to go with him? Who doesn’t like to see his children and descendants blessed? To be blessed by God is the best thing we could ever experience in our lives. That is why God really wants us to love and follow Him.
This should also be our desire, that our hearts would be for God always, to fear Him, and to obey Him. If God Himself desires it, then we should too, because if we do, then our prime motivation in life and our everyday doings is to follow Him.
If we do this, we can be assured of a blessed life and future, inspite of what’s going on around us.
