In today’s passage, Moses commissions Joshua to take his place, speaks his final words to Israel, and dies.
- Be strong and courageous – Moses tells Joshua and the people to be strong and courageous as they enter into the land. Where does this courage come from? This courage comes from the knowledge that God goes with them. In what situations in your life do you need courage? Remember that God goes with you!
- Reading the Law – Every seven years the Law was to be read that the people may learn not just the laws, but to fear the Lord and do them. If we are to obey God we must be in the Book to learn his commands. If we are to obey God we must be in the Book to learn about God and fear him.
- Great God – Moses proclaims the greatness of our God in his song that he teaches Israel. God is perfect, just, faithful, and upright. He is a Rock. He is the only true God and none can stand against him. Take some time to praise your great God!
