Dear Daughter of Almighty God
Deuteronomy 11:13 (ESV)
13 “And if you will indeed obey my commandments that I command you today, to love the Lord your God, and to serve him with all your heart and with all your soul,
It would be good for you to read the whole chapter to see how this verse fits. God tells the people of Israel how He will bless them if they love God and serve him with their heart and soul.
When God asks us to do something it is always for our benefit. God does know what is best for us, what is a head of us and what we will need to get through life. When God gives us an instruction we need to follow it in every detail and to the end because we will benefit.
God knows what He is doing, trust in Him.
