Our inner responses show how close God is to us
  • Deuteronomy 41:5-9
  • Psalm 148: 12-13, 15-16, 19-20
  • Matthew 5:17-19

God performed mighty deeds and brought out the Hebrews from Egyptian captivity. The nations saw the powerful acts of God and marveled at how close God was to his chosen ones. When the Hebrews observed the laws and statutes that the Lord declared to them, the nations witnessed their wisdom and marveled at how close God was to them. We who have encountered the Lord are like those rescued from Egypt. Those who hear our testimonies marvel at the closeness of God and are blessed as they too experience God’s mercy. After conversion we enter a new season, where we bless others by hearing the voice of the Lord and obeying him in the secret places of our hearts. However, like it was with the Hebrews, our brokenness often gets in the way. Jesus declares that it is to fix this problem that he came. Whenever we fall, we return to him and give the truth of our hearts to him. We remember and declare the saving acts of God. These memories then become prophesies that are fulfilled over our lives again and again.

Prayer: Abba Father, may we hear your voice and act on it. When we fall and fail, grant us the grace to return to you without delay. Amen.
