the earlier days

Deuteronomy 4:30 When you are in distress and all these things have happened to you, in the future you will return to Yahveh your God and obey him.

Deuteronomy 4:31 He will not leave you, destroy you, or forget the covenant with your fathers that he swore to them by oath, because Yahveh your God is a compassionate God.

Deuteronomy 4:32 “Indeed, ask about the earlier days that preceded you, from the day God created humankind on the land and from one end of the sky to the other: Has anything like this great event ever happened, or has anything like it been heard of?

the earlier days

Moses pleads for the Israelites to recognize just how special they are. He wants them to succeed on the mission, although he concedes that even when they fail, God’s compassion will be there to restore them.

He encourages the Israelites to look into their history. What God has done for them is above and beyond anything their ancestors had experienced.

Christian, have you been blessed? Don’t throw that blessing away. Allow the Sacred Breath to make you a witness to Christ and his kingdom.

Lord, when we feel discouraged, remind us of how you have blessed us.
