Deuteronomy 29:1-4 (JDV)
Deuteronomy 29:1 These are the words of the covenant Yahveh commanded Moses to establish with the Israelites in the land of Moab, in addition to the covenant he had made with them at Horeb.
Deuteronomy 29:2 Moses summoned all Israel and said to them, “You have seen with your own eyes everything Yahveh did in Egypt to Pharaoh, to all his officials, and to his entire land.
Deuteronomy 29:3 You saw with your own eyes the great trials and those great signs and wonders.
Deuteronomy 29:4 Yet to this day Yahveh has not given you a heart to understand, eyes to see, or ears to hear.
Moses points out here that the Israelites had seen all they needed to see in order to be blessed and a blessing. But the proper walk with God involves more than just seeing a miracle. They would also need “a heart to understand, eyes to see, or ears to hear.”
We as Christians are also tempted to think that all we need is for God to answer our prayers. But, deep inside we know that an external miracle would not be enough. We need an internal miracle — one that changes our heart, and opens our eyes and ears to who God really is.
Lord, I pray for my brothers and sisters in Christ today, that you would work the miracle in their hearts that would change them into who they need to be to share your glory with the nations.
