The Last Word

What gets the last word?

Well, with Moses, God does! Literally, his last recorded words were to point to God and say, “There is no one like our God!”

There’s no one who helps us like our God. There’s no one as majestic as our God. There’s no one you can always rely on to be your place of refuge like our God. There’s no one who will always catch you when you fall like our God.

You are safe and secure when you — by trusting in his promises — rest in his loving arms.

He’s the shield on your arm, the helper at your side, and the sword in your hand.

Fear no one else. God is with you.

And that’s the last word on the subject!

“There is no one like the God of Jeshurun, who rides across the heavens to help you and on the clouds in his majesty. The eternal God is your refuge, and underneath are the everlasting arms. He will drive out your enemies before you, saying, ‘Destroy them!’ So Israel will live in safety; Jacob will dwell secure in a land of grain and new wine, where the heavens drop dew. Blessed are you, Israel! Who is like you, a people saved by the LordHe is your shield and helper and your glorious sword. Your enemies will cower before you, and you will tread on their heights” (Deuteronomy 33:26-29, NIV).

Our Bible reading for Tuesday, April 21, is Deuteronomy 33:1 – 34:12, Luke 20:27 – 21:4 and Psalm 49:1-20.

Lord, thank you for being the last word of grace, forgiveness, protection and safety in my life!

One thought on “The Last Word”

  1. Our Bible reading for Tuesday, April 21, is Deuteronomy 33:1 – 34:12, Luke 20:27 – 21:4 and Psalm 49:1-20.

    But those who are considered worthy of taking part in the age to come and in the resurrection from the dead will neither marry nor be given in marriage, and they can no longer die; for they are like the angels. They are God’s children, since they are children of the resurrection.

    He is not the God of the dead, but of the living, for to him all are alive.” (‭Luke‬ ‭20‬:‭35-36, 38‬ NIV)

    Hear this, all you peoples; listen, all who live in this world, both low and high, rich and poor alike: My mouth will speak words of wisdom; the meditation of my heart will give you understanding. I will turn my ear to a proverb; with the harp I will expound my riddle: (‭Psalm‬ ‭49‬:‭1-4‬ NIV)

    Though while they live they count themselves blessed— and people praise you when you prosper— they will join those who have gone before them, who will never again see the light of life. (‭Psalm‬ ‭49‬:‭18-19‬ NIV)

    Heavenly Father, God of all thank you for all your blessings. Thank you for marriage, thank you for my wife, thank you for my family. You who created all things gave me something special, someone special. In Christ we are the living, blessed with the promise of eternal life in your name. Thank you Jesus for that sacrifice you made to ensure salvation for me, all those I love, for the entire world. Father I listen your word. I am so blessed, trying each and everyday to have my faith outshine my riches. I am a sinner, saved by your grace. I tell the world that there is nothing, nothing more and nothing less to know. God is our rock, our savior, redeemer.
