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 Lord? He 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!
