Using Words to Glorify God
March 17, 2020: SOAP #3757: Deuteronomy 32-34; 1Corinthians 2
Scripture: Deuteronomy (NIV) 32:1 [The song of Moses] Listen,O heavens, and I will speak; hear, O earth, the words of my mouth. 2 Let myteaching fall like rain and my words descend like dew, like showers on newgrass, like abundant rain on tender plants. 3 I will proclaim the name of theLORD. Oh, praise the greatness of our God! 4 He is the Rock, his works areperfect, and all his ways are just. A faithful God who does no wrong, uprightand just is he.
Observation: YesterdayI read from Psalms 40 where David used the wonderful ability God gave man tocommunicate great and wonderful truth with words that can be spoken and heard. Here in Deuteronomy 32 we see that Moses didthe same.
As Moses comes to the end of his writing, he leaves the Israelites with asong. The people did not have a bookthey could carry with them containing the words of God"so Moses left them witha song. Putting the words to music wouldhelp them remember.
Application: God andI share a special blessing. We both livein a house with Sharon. So often as sheis in the kitchen preparing a meal, or in the basement ironing clothes, or inthe bedroom making the bed, or cleaning the living room, God and I are blest tohear her sing. She sings the worshipsongs we sang at Bayview. She sings thesongs from the old song book. She sings songsfrom Andover Assembly of God and some that we have recently learned. And sometimes she sings songs she has writtenjust for the Lord.
Prayer: HolySpirit, keep the song of the Lord ringing in my heart. May the Lord enjoy being with me and may thosearound me know that I hold Him in high esteem. Amen
Making friends for time and eternity!
