Deuteronomy 6 is one of my favorite passages of Scripture.
Put your soul around it as you read these three verses.
Deuteronomy 6 AMP) 6 “Now this is the command; the statutes and the judgments (precepts) which the Lord your God has commanded me to teach you, so that you might do (follow, obey) them in the land which you are crossing over [the Jordan] to possess,
2 so that you and your son and your grandson may fear and worship the Lord your God [with awe-filled reverence and profound respect], to keep [and actively do] all His statutes and His commandments which I am commanding you, all the days of your life, so that your days may be prolonged.
3 Therefore listen, O Israel, and be careful to do them, that it may go well with you and that you may increase greatly [in numbers], as the Lord, the God of your fathers, has promised you, in a land flowing with milk and honey. source
What do you feel as you read?
Yes. We can feel the Bible.
We can experience the Author as we read.
The Bible is like no other book in the Universe.
The Bible is filled with promises that we can own, if we choose.
Read the verses again.
How many promises do you see in just these three verses?
Milk and Honey . . . only the beginning.
And what about milk and honey? What must there be for a land to flow with milk and honey? First, the flow means there is LOTS of it! Lots of milk. Lots of honey. For there to be lots of milk you have to have lots of livestock: cattle, sheep, and goats. And to have lots of cattle, sheep, and goats you have to LOTS and LOTS of grass; lots of green pastures. And to have lots of honey, what do you have to have? Yep. LOTS of flowers and veggies. Get the picture? We are talking fertile, abundantly producing. Green. Lush. Bee tee full! 🙂
See what I mean? Dig in! Dig into the Scriptures and let the Milk and Honey flow!
I probably should save this post for tomorrow. But I’m not. I hope you all enjoy reading it as much as I have enjoyed writing it. Happy Thursday!
