By Don Ruhl

At the direction of the Lord, Moses laid out before Israel the Lord’s blessing for obeying Him and the Lord’s curse for disobeying Him. Moses also prophesied that Israel would experience both the Lord’s blessing and curse, and that once they had suffered through the ultimate curse of going into captivity, they would have a change of heart,

“Now it shall come to pass, when all these things come upon you, the blessing and the curse which I have set before you, and you call them to mind among all the nations where the LORD your God drives you, and you return to the LORD your God and obey His voice, according to all that I command you today, you and your children, with all your heart and with all your soul, that the LORD your God will bring you back from captivity, and have compassion on you, and gather you again from all the nations where the LORD your God has scattered you” (Deuteronomy 30.1–3).

The key for the Lord to bring them back to their land from captivity would be when they called to mind what the Lord had told them, and then for them to experience it all and see that He was right all along.


  • Do you call to mind what the Lord has said in His word?
  • Have you learned the hard way that the Lord is always right?
