Today’s Scripture Reading: Deuteronomy 33:1 through Deuteronomy 34:12; Joshua 1:1 through Joshua 2:24
I’m sad that Moses died in today’s reading. He has been our leader for four books.
There has never been another prophet in Israel like Moses, whom the Lord knew face to face (Deut. 34:10).
Did you notice that God, not man buried him? (Deut. 34:5)
My God has ridden across heaven to help me! I love the beautiful picture this phrase brings to mind. In Deuteronomy 33:26 (NLT), Moses is giving his final words to the Israelites just before his death. Here’s what he says: “There is no one like the God of Israel. He rides across the heavens to help you, across the skies in majestic splendor.”
Just think, when Moses wrote these words in Deuteronomy, Jesus had not come. Moses knew a lot about God’s help and majestic splendor but Moses had just a glimpse of the extent God was willing to help. God was so determined to help us that he sent his only son “across the heavens” and to the earth to die on a cross for our sins. Moses is one of my top 5 heroes of the Bible and I’ve experienced “help” that he could only hope for. Wow! That’s amazing!
I had the privilege of watching two of Louie Giglio’s DVDs on the “majestic splendor” of God and saw this amazing picture. I encourage you to check out Louie’s “How Great is Our God” and “Indescribable” DVDs.
Yes, people, there is a God and He is so much bigger than we allow Him to be.
Where would I be without My God? I can’t tell you how many times My God has ridden across heaven to help me in my day-to-day life but the most important time God came to my rescue was when He sent his son Jesus Christ to this earth to pay the price for my sinful nature and make a way for me to have eternal life (John 3:16)
Do you need to be rescued today? Ask Jesus Christ, son of the one true God and our Savior to ride across heaven to help you.
