*This weekly newsletter will share about the Bible Breakdown podcast, things about RLC, and my favorite things from around the web. My prayer is it will help you know God better.
Hello friends. Happy Saturday! It's been another fantastic week reading God's Word together. Thank you for taking the journey. Thank you for being part of this community.
🎧 My Favorite Bible Breakdown Episode>>>
My favorite episode this week: Deuteronomy 28.
📚 The Problem Isn't God. It's Us. 🤷🏻♂️
(Deut 28:2-7) You will experience all these blessings if you obey the Lord your God: Your towns and your fields will be blessed. Your children and your crops will be blessed. The offspring of your herds and flock will be blessed. Your fruit baskets and breadboards will be blessed. Wherever you go and whatever you do, you will be blessed. The Lord will conquer your enemies when they attack you. They will attack you from one direction, but they will scatter from you in seven!
Observation: This chapter hit me a little differently because I noticed that God starts with the blessing. He really, really wants good things for us. The problem isn't God. It's us. He continues to talk about all the consequences of turning our backs on Him. It reminds me that all the promises of God are true. All of them. That includes the bad ones. However, that is not what He wants. He wants good things for us. Thank You, Jesus.
Application: Never get to the bad stuff. Stay in the blessing of God. However, if bad days come, He still walks with us.
