Deuteronomy 32:28-31 (JDV)

Deuteronomy 32:28 Israel is a nation which has lost its sense with no understanding at all.
Deuteronomy 32:29 If only they were wise, they would comprehend this; they would understand their fate.
Deuteronomy 32:30 How could one pursue a thousand, or two cause ten thousand to run away, unless their Rock had sold them, unless Yahveh had given them up?
Deuteronomy 32:31 But their “rock” is not like our Rock, as even our enemies concede.

Moses reminds the Israelites that there had been a rock contest. The rock that the nations relied on to protect them was not strong enough to do so when Israel marched into the land. Their rocks — their gods — lost the contest. Israel’s rock was harder. God’s protection was stronger.

Our God offers us protection that can withstand the attacks of the gods all around us. We cannot afford to be disloyal to him, because he has no peer. He is God almighty.

Lord, we come to you seeking salvation and protection.
