Deuteronomy 30:19, 20
I call heaven and earth as witnesses today against you, that I have set before you life and death, blessing and cursing; therefore choose life, that both you and your descendants may live; 20 that you may love the Lord your God, that you may obey His voice, and that you may cling to Him, for He is your life and the length of your days; and that you may dwell in the land which the Lord swore to your fathers, to Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob, to give them.”
Many today depend on God when all their strength and all their wealth can not rescue them. They go to God at last. This is where the faithless generation exposed. But King David on the other hand went to God when he lacked everything and also when he had everything. That is why he was a man after God’s own heart.
When a difficult situation arise, they try with all their own resources and when everything else is failed, they depend on God. They are ready to wait on God. God is merciful and help them, but He knows the condition of your heart. He does not like it nor pleased with it. Blessing is not a symbol of God’s approval but rather His mercy. God approves a person who love Him, obey Him, and cling to Him in ALL circumstances.
When you cling to Him, you will obey Him.
When you obey Him, you will love Him.
When you come near to Him, He will come near to you.
