But be assured today that the Lord your God is the one… Deut. 9:3
The fire alarm has just been pulled… you have 60 seconds… what do you take? 1, 2..
Take this: It is not because of your righteousness or your integrity… Deut. 9:4 For I know that good itself does not dwell in me, that is, in my sinful nature. For I have the desire to do what is good, but I cannot carry it out. Romans 7:18 A few times in Deut. 9 we are reminded not to think more highly of our selves than we ought. Remember that GOD IS THE ONE from Whom all good comes and Who can work all things for good. Let’s be on guard against the devils schemes to get us to start relying on our own ability of which we have none that God did not grant us first! When something great is accomplished and we are on the mountain top and all is going well, that is when we might be most susceptible to this way of thinking… we are fine we don’t need God and we forget Who got us to the mountain top. Deut. 9:1 says you are going to take down something greater and stronger, larger, higher and taller than you – so much so that no one could stand against it!! But today you will annihilate it quickly!!! WHAT?!? But the warning is clear BE ASSURED IT IS YOUR GOD WHO IS THE ONE WHO IS A DEVOURING FIRE! Praise Him! Nothing is impossible with Jesus! Lord help me today to turn all glory to where glory is due, let me never forget that is YOU!
