Today's Verse : Deuteronomy 1:29-30


January 29, 2012

Then I said to you, "Do not be terrified; do not be afraid of
them. The LORD your God, who is going before you, will fight for
you, as he did for you in Egypt, before your very eyes."
-- Deuteronomy 1:29-30

Moses began his farewell message to Israel with a reminder of
their parents' refusal to obey God's word to enter the Promised
Land. With his death, these Israelites will have to follow a leader
other than Moses for the first time in their lives. Moses wants
them to know that their real Leader hasn't changed. God had done
mighty things for them in Moses' day. Now God will do mighty things
in their day through Joshua. They will have more than second hand
deliverance stories to tell their grandchildren. They will be
eyewitnesses of God's power and faithfulness. But they would have
to obey this same command their parents ignored and own a faith
that their ancestors did not have!

Almighty and Sovereign LORD, all glory and honor goes to you for
your mighty acts to redeem, to save, to fulfill, and to bless your
people throughout the ages. I ask, dear LORD, please bless your
people today with faith to expect your power, hearts to obey your
Word, and eyes to see that your great work is not yet done. In
Jesus' name I pray. Amen.
