Reflections on Deuteronomy 9-11

Moses continues to exhort the people to follow the Lord as he notes God’s faithfulness to them.

  • God’s Faithfulness – Why is God so faithful to these rebellious people? The answer in part is found in his covenant promise to Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob.  Because of that covenant, he will bring them into the land (9:5).  In response to that covenant, God has already made the people as numerous as the stars of heaven (10:22).  God faithfully keeps his promises.  What promises do you need to claim today?
  • Fear, Love, Serve, Obey – Moses challenges the people to fear the Lord, walk in his ways, love God, serve him, and obey him (10:12-13). That same challenge applies to us.  How well do these verses describe you?  In what ways do you need to grow in your walk with the Lord?
  • Choices – The people had a choice: to obey and be blessed, or to disobey and be cursed (11:26-28). We too have a choice each day to obey or not.  Blessing comes from obedience.  Disobedience will bring discipline.  What choices are you making?
