Psalm 81:8-10 (NKJV) 8 “Hear, O My people, and I will admonish you! O Israel, if you will listen to Me! 9 There shall be no foreign god among you; Nor shall you worship any foreign god. 10 I am the Lord your God, Who brought you out of the land of Egypt; Open your mouth wide, and I will fill it.
God reminds the people of Israel that it was He who delivered them from Egypt. He is the One and Only True Living GOD. And they shall only worship Him. The nation of Israel is God’s chosen people, and He will sustain them in ways like no other nations. That is God’s promise to Israel. But there is a spiritual lesson for us as well. God saved the people of Israel from the bondage of slavery in Egypt. And God saved us from the bondage of sin. Now, God says to all who are His children through faith in the Lord Jesus Christ His Son, “I Am, you shall have no other gods before Me, then I will bless you with all spiritual blessings in Christ Jesus My Son.” My friend, the pathway of blessings lay in faithfulness to God. For God blesses the obedience of His children. And my friend, God has done just that. God has been good to me, and I know you can say the same. “And we know that all things work together for good to those who love God, to those who are the called according to His purpose” (Romans 8:28 NKJV). “Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who has blessed us with every spiritual blessing in the heavenly places in Christ” (Ephesians 1:3 NKJV).
God Bless and have a great day in God’s Word.
