Meditations on Lesson 2
Truth or Consequences: Head to Heart Guide
Read Deuteronomy 28:1-20 (or the whole chapter if you can bear to hear all the consequences of not harkening to God's voice!). Notice especially how consequences (good or bad) come to us based upon our attention (or lack of it) to God’s voice—not just the words of scripture.
1) Thinking mainly in terms of health issues (for now), try to name all of the ways in which God has been sending His Truth to you concerning things to do to maintain good health. Don’t just think inside the church box. God “speaks” in all kinds of ways.
2) Then name consequences that you know of that come (eventually) to those who don’t heed the words of truth God has been speaking—especially in terms of health issues.
3) Now name all of the ways God goes to work to gracefully help us with those same health issues—even they may have come to us because we didn’t listen to Him.
4) Say a prayer of gratitude that we are under a new and better covenant—one that gives great grace.
The Lord doesn’t remove all of the consequences of our choices from our lives (we live in a real world after all), but at least the covering of mercy and love is perfect!
