Daily Devotion on Deuteronomy 4:1-2, 6-8
Text: Deuteronomy 4:1-2, 6-8
There is no god as great as our God
No other god made the heavens and the earth. No other god sent his son to save us from our sin. No other god listen to our prayers. No other god carefully watches over us and protects us. No other god works every moment of our lives for our good and for his purposes.
There is no god as great as our God. In fact, there is no other god that is even a real god. Our God is the only true God.
How can we possibly show him thanks? How can we show him the respect and honor that is due him? How can we worship him above all other things?
The answer is really quite simple: Obey him.
Moses reminds us this morning, as he did the people of Israel, that the greatest way to show love for God and proclaim him to other nations is to simply obey him. By our obedience we will show him love. By our obedience we will show him respect. By our obedience we will show to all other people how we know we have such a great and awesome God.
So Moses’ words are words to heed: Listen to the commands of the Lord! Do not add to them. Do not subject from them. Then obey the commands of the Lord!
God be with us in our acts of love and obedience for him!
Prayer: Heavenly Father, we pray that you be with us each and every day as we strive to live and work for you in all we do. Help us to show love for you by obeying you. Let our works and our words be a testimony to others that you are the true God of all. I pray for your help in Jesus’ name. Amen.
