It is God’s original loving desire to initiate and keep His covenant of freedom from slavery with Israel. Even after 430 years, God proved faithful to His promises. God is still in the business of separating individuals for intimate relationship.
TEXT: ” When I have brought them to the land flowing with milk and honey….. then they will turn to other gods and serve them; and they will provoke Me and break My covenant.”- Deuteronomy 31:20 ( KJV )
Unfortunately, today’s text also reflects a pathetic view of the Israelites’ intention to provoke God by their sin of idolatry. They actually began to serve other gods as originally intended and predicted by God ( v 21 ).
1. How separated are you unto God ?
2. Many behave today as if God does not know them intently. This is the height of self-deception.
Every covenant deed between human and God is found in the Word of God and activated by God’s Spirit in man.
1. Holy Spirit, please help me to overcome the spirit of self-deception.
2. I pray for grace to be disciplined in studying God’s Word and obeying it.
