He Is

Recently, in a moment of boredom of all things, I read through the book of Deuteronomy. To be completely candid and open with you, the book has always been a boring one for me. One of the "Thou Shalt" and "Thou Shalt Not" books. But that particular afternoon, suddenly I saw it in a different light. It wasn't a book of the law so much as it was a book that revealed the true heart of God. Reading it with a heart to know Him and understand His ways revealed the deeper aspect of the book, and I found that Deuteronomy is an amazing reflection on who God really is.

For He is...

"For the LORD your God is a merciful God; he will not abandon or destroy you."
Deuteronomy 4:31


"For I, the LORD your God, am a jealous God."
Deuteronomy 5:9


"The LORD will establish you as his holy people."
Deuteronomy 28:9



"Know therefore that the LORD your God is God;
He is the faithful God,
keeping His covenant of love to a thousand generations
of those who love Him and keep His commands."
Deuteronomy 7:9



"What other nation is so great as to have such righteous decrees and laws
as this body of laws I am setting before you today?"

Deuteronomy 4:8


"He will show you mercy, and have compassion on you.
Deuteronomy 13:17


"He is the Rock, His works are perfect,
and all His ways are just.
A God of truth and without iniquity
upright and just is He."
Deuteronomy 32:4


"For the LORD your God is God of gods and Lord of lords,
the great God, mighty and awesome."
Deuteronomy 10:17

I love how God's Word is filled with hidden gems. They are revealed to us when we search for them and when they are needed most. This is one reason why the Bible is so amazing - we can read it through multiple times and always discover something new!

So glad your recent reading of Deuteronomy was uplifting! Thank you for sharing what you found...
