Prayer List - From Donetta our Prayer Team Leader


Cleave Unto the Lord your God
Deuteronomy 4.4


If you will cleave unto your Lord

  •  Love, Keep, and Heed the perfectly preserved Word of God (vs 2)

  • What it means to Cleave unto God - Hearing and Heeding the Word of God (vs 3-7)

What did Baalpeor do? (Number 24.25-25.1-5)  He taught Balac to send in is beautiful young girls to draw the young men to lust after their sensuality and leave the lord God.  Sounds like the covenantless sensuality of our day.  The result is the same, make the worlds sensuality your god and it will one day destroy you.

But those who did cleave unto the Lord their God (vs 4) are alive unto and through God. 

James 4:8  Draw nigh to God, and he will draw nigh to you. Cleanse your hands, ye sinners; and purify your hearts, ye double minded.

How did they cleave to God? (vs 5) By loving and heeding the Word of God as the Lord Commanded that is as God's Word of Given, without one added word or one lost word.  Don't change anything in the Word of God.  Love God's Word as He gave it.

How does one show they really love the Word of God? (vs 6) they keep it, every word of it.

Where is national success found? (vs 7-8) in Cleaving to, obeying, and loving the Word of God.  Righteous statutes and judgments.  There is no better law.

  • The only way to overcome in the Word of God is be Discipled in the Word (vs 14-15)

  • Departing from the Lord your God brings judgment (vs 16-28; cf. 16, 23-26)

  • Turn back to God with all your heart and soul (vs 29-31)

  • Know there is only one living God (vs 39-40) - He is only known through the love of His never changing Word.
