Listen closely, Israel, and be careful to obey. Then all will go well with you, and you will have many children in the land flowing with milk and honey, just as the lord, the God of your ancestors, promised you.
God tells Israel over and over of his promises and the amazing lives they will have if they will follow his commands. The amazing thing about this is he will also tell them how in the future they will do detestable things and face his wrath for it. We can only imagine the future, God can see it. He sees ahead and the ramifications if we head down the wrong path. God’s promises are real! If your life has hit a fork in the road, God may be preparing a better way. Be faithful and patient, God will guide you.
