he watches, so watch

Deuteronomy 7:9 Know that Yahveh your God is God, the faithful God who watches his gracious covenant loyalty for a thousand generations with those who care about him and keep his commands.
Deuteronomy 7:10 But he directly pays back and destroys those who hate him. He will not hesitate to pay back directly the one who hates him.
Deuteronomy 7:11 So watch the command – the prescriptions and rules – that I am commanding you to follow today.

he watches, so watch

We are tempted to think of God as going about his own affairs and only occasionally dropping a miracle down on us. Not so. Our God is not engrossed in some other section of the universe so that he doesn’t see all that happens in our lives. He is constantly watching, and waits to see if there is any act of obedience that he can reward. He also sees every act of rebellion, and hears every whisper of doubt.

Since we have a God who is constantly watching, we need to watch his commands, making sure that we obey them. In these last days he has spoken to us through his Son, and his commands are our responsibility.

Lord, make us diligent to obey all your commands, because you are watching.
