3 Listen, Israel, and carefully obey these laws. Then all will go well for you, and you will become a great nation in a fertile land, just as the Lord, the God of your ancestors, has promised you.
Just as God promised Isreal he promises us that if we trust and love him we will become like fertile land. Sometimes we think we need to work hard to nurture the seed. We don’t do anything, yes we read the bible and go to church; to grow in a relationship with him – but God does all the hard work of making us brand new. For when we are found in christ we are brand new. When you begin this journey it may not be easy but anything that is easy is never worth very much at all. This life is made for a connection with God. Allow him to nurture that special seed inside of you.
He created you, people of Jacob;
he formed you, people of Israel.
He says, “Don’t be afraid, because I have saved you.
I have called you by name, and you are mine.
2 When you pass through the waters, I will be with you.
When you cross rivers, you will not drown.
When you walk through fire, you will not be burned,
nor will the flames hurt you.
3 This is because I, the Lord, am your God,
the Holy One of Israel, your Savior.
-Isaiah 43 v1-3
