Wesley's Notes for Deuteronomy 8:10


8:10 Bless the Lord - Solemnly praise him for thy food; which is a debt both of gratitude and justice, because it is from his providence and favour that thou receivest both thy food and refreshment and strength by it. The more unworthy and absurd is that too common profaneness of them, who, professing to believe a God, from whom all their comforts come, grudge to own him at their meals, either by desiring his blessing before them, or by offering due praise to God after them.


Discussion for Deuteronomy 8

    Verse 18: While ultimately it is through God's provision that Christians have material things, God has granted his people 'power' (abilities, knowledge, skills, gifts) to earn a living and provide for our families. God as equipped us with the capacity to do great things for His glory; we just have to exercise our gifts and abilities and let Him do the rest!

    I'm wanting to know what is the power he has given us to get wealth. What does the word power here mean. Thank you

    Verse 2: The Israelites were encouraged to remember Jehovah God and his dealings with them in the wilderness. God humbled them by putting them to the test. He allowed them the opportunity of listening to him and then doing what he said. He could have instantly judged them but he gave them a chance to individually show that they loved him and wanted to obey him.

    We should Thank GOD EVERY DAY for what we have,so many have nothing and still find a way to accept it and be happy,this I think means the pressure of fitting in as well,the clothes we wear,cars,jewelry ect and our gluttony to WANT more,due to our selfish desires to fit in,we have so much to be thankful for,we are nothing without GOD and we need to constantly HUMBLE ourselves,no matter our agesAMEN

    Obedience is better than sacrifice.

    Once your wilderness has ended, I will send you into a land of more than enough says the Lord! Wow-this truly blessed me. We must not forget God and always remember it was him who kept us in the wilderness and him only that gives us power to get wealth! Once tried and tested you will come forth as pure gold :)
