Focus Verses For Today: Leviticus 26:3-13
Today we conclude our journey through the book of Leviticus with chapters 25-27.
Before starting today’s journey, spend some time in prayer, asking God to reveal His true meaning of Leviticus 25-27. Read Leviticus 25-27. Let’s journey!
Leviticus 25-27: Our journey today explains the Sabbath year, the Year of Jubilee, God’s reward for obedience and punishment for disobedience, and how to redeem what is set aside to the Lord. Today’s journey through Leviticus is a story of redemption, obedience, correction, and restoration. (Leviticus 25:1-27:34)
Our focus verses for today:
‘If you follow my decrees and are careful to obey my commands, 4 I will send you rain in its season, and the ground will yield its crops and the trees their fruit. 5 Your threshing will continue until grape harvest and the grape harvest will continue until planting, and you will eat all the food you want and live in safety in your land.
6 “‘I will grant peace in the land, and you will lie down and no one will make you afraid. I will remove wild beasts from the land, and the sword will not pass through your country. 7 You will pursue your enemies, and they will fall by the sword before you. 8 Five of you will chase a hundred, and a hundred of you will chase ten thousand, and your enemies will fall by the sword before you.
9 “‘I will look on you with favor and make you fruitful and increase your numbers, and I will keep my covenant with you. 10 You will still be eating last year’s harvest when you will have to move it out to make room for the new. 11 I will put my dwelling place[a] among you, and I will not abhor you. 12 I will walk among you and be your God, and you will be my people. 13 I am the Lord your God, who brought you out of Egypt so that you would no longer be slaves to the Egyptians; I broke the bars of your yoke and enabled you to walk with heads held high. (Leviticus 26:3-13, NIV)
God blessed the people of Israel for their obedience to Him. Israel suffered God’s punishment through their worship of false gods. This worship allowed the Israelites to justify practices that violated God’s decrees and commands resulting in the Israelites allowing the true God to be replaced by false gods; Satan at war with God. God’s love for the Israelites punished the Israelites reminding them of the truth and consequences of sin.
