God does not want us to obey some or part of His commandments but all of them. Every word of God is pure and perfect for the edifying of the body, spirit and soul. Obeying all of God’s word has great rewards, like everlasting life and on earth you will live longer, multiplication in every area of your life and you will posses the land that He promised and swore to Abraham, Jacob and Isaac.
The test you have gone through is so that you could remember the Lord your God, since it seems like the only time we remember Him. But it’s to prove that you are worthy of God’s gifts and it tells God what’s in your heart. That you have not replaced Him with no one or any thing. He humbles you to the point of suffering and lack, so you will realize the truth of Philippians 4:13. That He is a supplier of all your needs according to His riches in glory through Christ Jesus, not the job, or family or the economy.
It is when you are humbled and suffering that you realize that you are nothing without God; and when you are disobedient, then you know punishment is on the way. Deuteronomy 8:5 says, He chastens as a man chastens his son. Then Hebrews 12:6 and Revelation 3:19 tells us that whom the Lord loves He chastens. Psalm 94:12 says, “Blessed is the man whom thou chastenest, O Lord, and teachest him out of thy law.”
So to keep God’s blessings and favor flowing, we have to keep the commandments of the Lord God; walk in His ways and fear Him (Deuteronomy 8:6). Then Romans 12:1-2 tells us to present our bodies as living sacrifices that is holy and acceptable unto Him. Matthew 6:33 tells us to always seek God first and Deut. 8:7-9 gives you a list of some of the blessings.
However, no matter how successful and prosperous you get in life don’t forget the Lord your God, and be sure to keep His commandments, judgements and statutes in the Bible, which He gives us daily (Deut 8:11).
Deuteronomy 8:2 tells us that testing normally humbles and proves who you are. Romans 8:35 tells us that nothing can separate us from the love of God.
When you decide to follow God, you must decide to continue until He returns or you die.
