God of Provision

God is our Provider

Deut. 1-2 This new generation may or may not have grown up in Egypt, but they have seen all God has done in the last 40 years. Moses begins by saying to the Israelites; when you trusted God, He provided and protected, and when you chose not to trust Him, you failed-BIG TIME; Kadesh Barnea in particular. 🙁

Moses reminded them of the grace of God to those who seem the most unlikely: Esau and Lot. Like you and I, both had failures on top of failures, yet God’s mercy and grace abounded! When we look at our lives, do we stop and wonder why God’s grace overflowed on us? Isaiah has the answer: “Indeed, my plans are not like your plans, and my deeds are not like your deeds,” says the Lord,” [Is. 55:8]

Today, as you read these chapters of Deuteronomy, stop and thank God, who is “compassionate and gracious…slow to anger, and abounding in loyal love and faithfulness” [Ex. 34:6]

As Moses reminded them, this is our reminder: “all the years God has been with us, we have lacked nothing.” [Deut 2:7]
