Got caught up. These long reads are hard to break apart but I do enjoy getting a broad sweeping picture. As I read the list of curses tonight I couldn't help but think of how some are already coming to fruition in America. I could dwell on this and go down the path of fear knowing where we are headed if things keep going the way that they are. Then I take comfort in the fact that God provided for His people. Even when things got crazy in Egypt God still provided for His people. Not everybody would view the daily manna He offers us as rich and abundant provision but I pray that God would soften my heart and continue to open my eyes more to His provision.
Not sure if I ever caught on before that it was the Lord who buried Moses. The Lord was with Moses through the very end. Very comforting.
Liked this verse:
Indeed, he loves his people; all his holy ones are in his hands. They follow in his steps and accept his teaching. (Deuteronomy 33:3 NLT)
Reminded that those who love the Lord are willing to obey His commands. The beauty is that in submitting to the will of the Lord life and freedom is found. So contrary to what the world would say.
This verse was my favorite:
So be strong and courageous! Do not be afraid and do not panic before them. For the LORD your God will personally go ahead of you. He will neither fail you nor abandon you." (Deuteronomy 31:6 NLT)
This verse gives me so much comfort especially in light of having struggled with abandonment issues. Love that the Lord will personally go before me if I'm walking in His ways.
Big take aways are the importance of remembering what God has done and being submerged in His Word. Failing to do those things makes it easy to walk away and desire to do our own thing.
