"If ye walk in my statutes, and keep my commandments, and do them; And your threshing shall reach unto the vintage, and the vintage shall reach unto the sowing time: and ye shall eat your bread to the full, and dwell in you safely."
(Leviticus 26:3, 5 KJV)
If we could just focus our lives on Jesus Christ and keep all Our Awesome God's commandments, we would never be hungry but would meet the threshers as we planted the next crop to eat. The children in Africa would not be starving and we would know food was everywhere. God promised this but we couldn't stay away from sin and what it does. So we have Poor People! So we have awful starvation! We have terrorists! We have death!
It gets harder and harder to find neighborhoods anywhere on earth that are free from robberies, murders and drugs. This is what we want for our children so that they aren't threatened and that their peers aren't liars, thieves, alcoholics, drug addicts, or worse. Our Awesome God wants His children to live free of all the problems we now have to face in our lives but, for now, He has promised to help us and protect us through them.
However, we have a new world coming free of sin and all the problems that our sinning has created. (Revelation 21:1-4) Can you imagine how wonderful this place will be? Nothing to worry about or cause you problems! No more liars! No more murders or drugs! Just blessings!
God wants you to focus on Him and getting sin out of your life, but He knows that it is impossible for you to avoid all sin as long as you live in this old world. What you can do is study your Bible and know His law so you will know when you have sinned. Then you can confess your sin and claim Our Awesome God’s promise of forgiveness and cleansing. (1 John 1:9) We need to start in our own lives then help our children along the same path to righteousness. As Our Awesome God becomes the focus of your life, you will find a weight lifting from your shoulders and a feeling of freedom infecting your lives. God wants our lives to be happy and filled with purpose, not burdened with sin and dejection. Only Christians will find this new home called Heaven with enough to eat for everyone.
