November 5, Deuteronomy 11:5

Deuteronomy 11:5

‟And what he did unto you in the wilderness, until ye came into this place:”

Here I think God wants us to understand that He had warned us enough.  Here, he is talking to the children of Israel, reminding them of all those years they spent in the wilderness.  The Lord fed them.  He made them walk in circles.  He directed their path.  He rid their people of the ones that were stiff-necked and would not walk in His path, nor keep his commandments.  He fed, protected, and chastised them.  He wants us to remember to ‟love the Lord your God, to walk in all His ways, and to cleave unto Him.”  (vs.22)

Remember, and take heed, because the Lord does chastise!

Deuteronomy 11:5

‟And what he did unto you in the wilderness, until ye came into this place:”

Deuteronomy 11:16

‟Take heed to yourselves, that your heart be not deceived, and ye turn aside, and serve other gods, and worship them;”

(vs.17)  ‟And then the LORD’s wrath be kindled against you, …”

This whole chapter is full of remembrance and warning, just as the New Testament is.  It is full of instruction and warnings about the chastisements.  The New Testament is full of warning us about being deceived by the false prophets.  

Wow!  There also seems to be a warning in my first sentence.  Let me tell you how I write.  I pray first.  I pray that the Spirit has control of my typing.  Then I start typing and only correct after I have written my thoughts.   After my running thoughts are finished, I do the grammar check and spell check.  Then I can listen to the post to see if it sounds ok.  Sometimes this listening is done with my eyes closed. 

It was done this way, tonight, and I was shocked to hear enough.  I paused and started the listening over.  Sure did hear that word!  So, I started over,  and was going to hit backspace to delete that one word, but ….  I realized that it was a warning in it-self.  That one word is a warning!  How many times have you heard someone yell it when their patience has been worn away?  How many times have you been told you have had enough of something, and you will get no more?  I wonder if that is why I typed it in the first sentence?  Did the Spirit guide that word on this post?  Maybe the Spirit is telling me that the Lord has had enough of not listening to His warnings, of not heeding His chastisements.  So, when I end the day I will be asking for guidance to find out what my enough’ is about.  I pray you do the same.
