Deuteronomy 13:4 NLT
Serve only the Lord your God and fear him alone. Obey his commands, listen to his voice, and cling to him.
- God wants us to listen to His voice, obey His commands and cling to Him.
Obey his commands, listen to his voice, and cling to him.
- God wants us to fear and serve only Him.
Serve only the Lord your God and fear him alone.
I recently received a call from a stranger who strongly believed I knew him. Following my thrice insistence that I didn’t know him, I quit listening and hung up the phone. The stranger called again and I ignored the call.
I have a friend who enjoys prank calling me at the weirdest moments. However, no matter what accent my friend uses or when he choose to do the prank call, I always recognize his speech patterns or mannerisms and call him out by name. If he refuses to quit joking, I would threaten to hang up. At that point, he would relent and tell me not to hang up and I would refrain from executing my threat. It was simple, I had a relationship with him and hence, recognized and listened to his voice and obeyed his commands. No matter how many times he has prank called, I was never tempted to change my friend. I cling to him. In fact, our relationship have stood for years.
Similarly, God wants us to have a relationship with Him. Through this relationship, He is able to speak to us and we will listen His voice and obey His commands. Until we have a relationship with God, we will not be motivated to serve and fear only Him or cling to Him. What is your relationship with God like?

I am a dynamic young lady who loves the Lord and seek to have a joy that no one can take away. My all-time favourite thing to do is gaining discoveries by design from My Father during our time each day. Reading, learning and trying new things falls behind in a close second place. My dream is to use my God-given talents to positively impact as many people as possible. As a proud Wolmerian, with a zest for life, I adhere to the “Age Quod Agis” motto in that whatsoever I do, I always do it to the best of my ability.
