Deuteronomy 33:47 – Your Life

Today’s Readings: Deut 32:28‐52, Luke 12:35‐59, Ps 78:56‐64, Prov 12:24

Deuteronomy 33:46-47 (Moses”) said to them, “Take to heart all the words by which I am warning you today, that you may command them to your children, that they may be careful to do all the words of this law. 47 For it is no empty word for you, but your very life, and by this word you shall live long in the land that you are going over the Jordan to possess.”

Observations:

  • Other than the formal blessing of Israel in chapter 33, these are the last recorded words of Moses.
  • We are to command his words to our children
  • His words are not empty
  • His words are our very life
  • By his words we are to live long.

Apply: We must see God’s words as our life… to truly depend on them to lead us as we live.

How have you seen God’s words actually be life to you?
