Lord, You speak to us Your Word of warning – and Your promise of blessing. You call us back from the way of disobedience – and on to the pathway of obedience and blessing. Where does the blessing come from? Does it come from our obedience? No! It comes from Your love. It comes from Your promise. Your love reaches us in our sin. Your blessing increases in us as we learn to turn from our sin and give You first place in our lives.
