A thought on Deuteronomy 30:11 along Mukah Roads

Along the way driving (I’m a co-driver actually) from Bintulu to Mukah for our Christian ministry trips, this verse kept echoed in my mind. It was my reading few days ago, oh I remember its sound quite well; “This command I am giving to you today is not too difficult for you to understand or perform.” (Deuteronomy 30:11NLT) This verse came out from Moses’ long series of sermons to the new generation that was emerging from the wilderness march. He keeps telling them about the central importance of obedience and stresses holiness as the way of life. Few chapters before the end of the book, he said, rather, he declared under God’s authority that God’s instruction “is not too difficult for you to understand or perform.” He was like saying, ‘God command what we’re able to obey.’

Do you ever find that the will of God is sometime elusive or unclear? Blur or unsure? Well, in some cases, you may need to pray over it or even wait for God’s directions in your life. But most of the time (in my opinion, the main barrier is due to laziness) God had spoken before... and He is still speaking today. ‘Where?’ you may ask. “It’s in His written Word,” my answer will forever be. Turn to the word of God – which is; the Bible. God wants to direct you. He wants to speak to you today. He wants to tell you about His will if only you would read His word day by day. In the book of Deuteronomy, Moses always reminds his hearers, ‘if you obey, you’ll be bless’ and ‘if you refuse, you’ll be curse’. Therefore, read the word of God and obey it! Read and obey, then, you’ll know the will of God in your life.

My Daily Walk Bible notes say, “God’s will for you is not a heavenly fog; it is a down-to-earth reality you can understand.” Yes! As we drive our way to Mukah, we just keep our eyes on the many signboards… you’ll never lost! Read the word of God, behold, you’ll find God’s will… but you know what? The most precious of all – you’ll hear God’s Voice speaks to you personally. My last words: Read the word of God. Read your Bible daily. Meet your Lord and Savior. Know Whom you worship.

“This command I am giving you today is not too difficult for you to understand,
and it is not beyond your reach.
It is not kept in heaven, so distant that you must ask,
‘Who will go up to heaven and bring it down so we can hear it and obey?’
It is not kept beyond the sea, so far away that you must ask,
‘Who will cross the sea to bring it to us so we can hear it and obey?’
No, the message is very close at hand;
it is on your lips and in your heart so that you can obey it.”
(Deuteronomy 30:11-14NLT)
