so that you'll have a good life and live a long time in the land that you're about to possess.
thank you lord, that once again this reminder couldn't have come at a better time! the strongest reminder that what the world runs after, what the world is preoccupied with, what the whole world in its own system of ways tries to achieve - all these, are just one step away in your world! one step of obedience, one step of trust, one step of setting you as the only authority in our lives, the only king of our hearts, the only father of our being. praise you lord, because when we run after you, when we follow you with our whole heart, when we call you our very own and set our direction towards you, all the things that the world chases after in vain - a good life, a long time in our inheritance land - will run after us! as we run after you, your blessings and fruitfulness run after us. what a design, lord! praise you!
