Deuteronomy 4:9 Only take heed to thyself, and keep thy soul diligently, lest thou forget the things which thine eyes have seen, and lest they depart from thy heart all the days of thy life: but teach them thy sons, and thy sons’ sons;
Moses is instructing the people before he steps out of the ministry. They have experienced and seen great things from God. They have known God like no one before them. They must never forget all that God has done in their lives. They must be ready to share all of this with their children and others.
I wonder how often we have experienced great things from God but not been careful to share with others the greatness of our God. Do we take time to remember and to think of how great He is? Do we share His goodness with others?
Tomorrow’s reading Deuteronomy 5
Take the shield of faith!
Ephesians 6:16 Above all, taking the shield of faith, wherewith ye shall be able to quench all the fiery darts of the wicked.
How very important it is for us all to take the shield of faith with us. We are to never forget the goodness of God. We are to control what thoughts get to take up residence in our hearts and minds. We are to remind ourselves and the devil of how good our God is!
We do not have to think things that we shouldn’t. We do not have to fall to Satan’s mind games. We do not have to believe lies. We can trust God to care for our thoughts.
Let Satan throw at us what he will. We have the power of God to live out what He has put in us. We can live up to who we are. Trust God and serve Him with all that is in you by the grace of God!
