God Tests the Heart
Whenever God gives a certain word, there will definitely be blessings for those who act on it. Since we are living in a three-dimensional world, we couldn't fully understand what God commands. However, God, who manages the fourth, fifth, and higher dimensional worlds, foresees everything.
The Bible is the teaching that God foresees from the beginning to the end and has taught us (Isaiah 46:10).
If we have faith, no matter how trivial the words commanded by God may seem, we must believe that the path of blessing that God has prepared for us is the way to go.
[Deuteronomy 8:1-3, 11-16] Be careful to follow every command I am giving you today, so that you may live and increase and may enter and possess the land that the LORD promised on oath to your forefathers. Remember how the LORD your God led you all the way in the desert these forty years, to humble you and to test you in order to know what was in your heart, whether or not you would keep his commands. He humbled you, causing you to hunger and then feeding you with manna, which neither you nor your fathers had known, to teach you that man does not live on bread alone but on every word that comes from the mouth of the LORD.
... Be careful that you do not forget the LORD your God, failing to observe his commands, his laws and his decrees that I am giving you this day.
... your heart will become proud and you will forget the LORD your God, who brought you out of Egypt, out of the land of slavery. He led you through the vast and dreadful desert, that thirsty and waterless land, with its venomous snakes and scorpions. He brought you water out of hard rock. He gave you manna to eat in the desert, something your fathers had never known, to humble and to test you so that in the end it might go well with you.
If you look at the desert path that the Israelites walked, you will find that first, various difficult conditions were given, and then God granted what the people wanted. Undoubtedly, many Israelites might have had their own thoughts during the process. It may have seemed easier to go their own way rather than follow God's path, and it may have appeared more reasonable as well. However, after they followed God's instructions, they eventually realized that God had been leading them in order to bless them.
God has instructed us not to forget the history of the desert and to remember it. Those who believed and followed God's word entered Canaan, the promised land, while those who stubbornly disobeyed met their end in the desert. To obey means to choose the path of blessing and to move forward on that path. Ultimately, obedience is an expression of the will to continue on the blessed path.
It is not God's will to make us suffer. Through that process, God observes the state of our hearts, the strength of our faith, and ultimately blesses us. There are reasons why God led the Israelites through the desert instead of taking them on a path with abundant water and food. Even if we do not understand why God led us along certain paths and why we sometimes face challenging trials and tribulations, God is preparing an eternal crown of glory for us at the end of the journey that will never fade away. (1 Peter 5:4).
[Deuteronomy 28:2] All these blessings will come upon you and accompany you if you obey the LORD your God.
Let's consider athletes who are preparing to compete in the Olympic Games. If the athlete were allowed to eat, play, and rest every day without any challenges, would they be able to achieve their desired medal?
Even though the present moment may be comfortable and their body less fatigued, in the end, there would be nothing but tears, pain, and frustration. That is why parents and coaches sometimes impose rigorous training on athletes. It is not meant to harass the players, but rather to guide them towards a path of glory.
We must accurately understand God's will to bless us and follow Heavenly Father and Mother wherever they lead us with strong faith, in order to reach the eternal kingdom of heaven. Let us not solely focus on the present reality but instead hold onto hope for the coming kingdom of heaven. Let us strive to become heavenly children who faithfully practice all the statutes, regulations, and laws that God has given to us.
[Deuteronomy 28:1-10] If you fully obey the LORD your God and carefully follow all his commands I give you today, the LORD your God will set you high above all the nations on earth. All these blessings will come upon you and accompany you if you obey the LORD your God: ... You will be blessed when you come in and blessed when you go out. The LORD will grant that the enemies who rise up against you will be defeated before you. They will come at you from one direction but flee from you in seven. The LORD will send a blessing on your barns and on everything you put your hand to. The LORD your God will bless you in the land he is giving you. The LORD will establish you as his holy people, as he promised you on oath, if you keep the commands of the LORD your God and walk in his ways. Then all the peoples on earth will see that you are called by the name of the LORD, and they will fear you.
If you obey, all blessings will come. Also, when you obey, you can receive the blessing of “you will always be at the top, never at the bottom.” (Deuteronomy 28:13).
In order to bestow blessings, God sometimes gives us various unexpected commands. The moment we start thinking, 'My idea will be better than God's will...' is when we risk losing the corresponding measure of blessings.
Let us strive to become the children of Zion who live in accordance with every word that proceeds from God's mouth.
