Key: Understanding the scriptures and God’s “terms and conditions” makes it easier for us to relate with God and live peaceable lives with His blessings. Here, God says we should worship/serve/do His will first then He’d bless…protect…etc. God has chosen to do His own part, so, why not do your part by worshiping/serving God?
Action Cue: If we want God to perform His works in our lives, worship is a lifestyle we all must consciously adopt and not the few minutes of singing in church or elsewhere.
