Daily Devotion on Deuteronomy 18:15-20
Text: Deuteronomy 18:15-20
Moses was an extraordinary man of God. Consider all the amazing things he was part of in his ministry: The 10 Plagues in Egypt, Leading 2 million Israelites through the middle of the Red Sea on dry ground, bringing water out of a rock, receiving the 10 Commandments from God on Mt. Sinai, and so much more.
It is no wonder that Moses was and is revered by the Jews. Christians also join in giving thanks for Moses and his great work as a great prophet of God.
But lest the Israelites would forget, Moses reminded them that a greater prophet would come. In fact, he would be the greatest prophet ever. Moses then encouraged the people to wait and watch for this Prophet, and then listen to him.
We too do well to listen to this greatest prophet, Jesus Christ. He is the greater Moses and the greatest prophet of God. He proclaims the truth. He is the Truth. He is the fulfillment of this prophecy of Moses and all of God’s prophecies about a Savior.
Yes, listen to Moses today, and listen to Jesus!
Prayer: Lord Jesus, you are the Way, the Truth, and the Life. Help me to listen to you speak as the Great Prophet of God. Give me a faith that trusts and believes what you say, and guide my my footsteps each day. Amen.
