Day 315 - Deut. 32

 •  1 min. read  •  grade level: 8
Although Moses had longed to go into the land, (God had told him he wouldn't be there) yet that didn't keep him from speaking the words of this wonderful song.
V. 1-43 If you take the time to read it slowly (it took me 8 minutes) you will see both the majesty, grace and love of God on one side, and yourself as a hopeless, rebellious sinner on the other side. Count how many times Moses goes from speaking of how gentle and kind God is (verses 2-4) and how terrible the people (we) acted (5). But as you read on, you get glimpses of what God will do at the end (29, 39, 40 and 43). Notice His grace, vengeance and glory!
V. 8 Interesting. Israel is singled out from all the countries in the world.
V. 44-47 Make the Word of God what Moses here says "Because it is your life".
There are two sides to God's dealings with us believers, (1) in grace, (2 Tim. 2:1313If we believe not, yet he abideth faithful: he cannot deny himself. (2 Timothy 2:13)) and (2) government (Gal. 6:77Be not deceived; God is not mocked: for whatsoever a man soweth, that shall he also reap. (Galatians 6:7)). If we forget grace, we become careless, and if we forget government and fail, we become depressed.
