“For you are holy people to the LORD your God, and the LORD has chosen you to be a people for Himself, a special treasure above all the peoples who are on the face of the earth.”
About 600 times in scripture the phrase “The LORD your God” is used! With that said do we allow the LORD to be our God? Or do we try to fit God into what we want ignoring or twisting what He says to fit our own desires?
“For He is our God, And we are the people of His pasture, And the sheep of His hand today, if you will hear His voice.”
We need to spend time with the LORD, in His word and listening to His voice! Problem is as while we are doing devotions or at bible study we spend way to much time doing other things in our heads! Like playing golf, planning work or vacations and just not being focused on the LORD! The idea of harken is to pay attention or give attention undivided attention
“But you are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, His own special people, that you may proclaim the praises of Him who called you out of darkness into His marvelous light.”
1 Peter 2:9
Today realize we are His special treasure, His people getting to proclaim His good news of salvation. So let’s pay attention to His voice, so we can proclaim His good news! Have a blessed day!
