an internal battle

Deuteronomy 5:1 Moses summoned all Israel and said to them, “Israel, listen to the prescriptions and rules I am proclaiming as you hear them today. Learn and watch them carefully.

Deuteronomy 5:2 Yahveh our God established a covenant with us at Horeb.

Deuteronomy 5:3 Yahveh did not establish this covenant with our fathers, but with all of us who are alive here today.

Deuteronomy 5:4 Yahveh spoke to you face to face from the fire on the mountain.

an internal battle

God would give the Israelites victory over their enemies by empowering them in battle. But Moses urges the people to prepare for an internal battle— in which victory would mean keeping the land, and witnessing to God’s glory within it.

In the same way, the blood of Christ has given us victory over the penalty of our own sins. But we need the Sacred Breath within us for fighting the internal battle we will all face in this life.

Lord, thank you for making our destiny certain, and giving us what we need to fight our internal battles.
