Israel were now ready to enter the Promised Land.
Joshua is now appointed as the new leader due to his faithfulness and loyalty to God.
Moses speaks his final words to Israel and there was, not a face over fifty years of age, as their predecessors had perished in the wilderness!
Moses now reminds them to not forget all the lessons they learned in the wilderness.
“As for you my people, when you have grown old in the land, remember to seek the Lord your God.
If you search for Him with all your heart, you will be found by Him.
Has there been any other God who has attempted to take a nation to Himself from the midst of another nation, by trials, by signs, by wonders, and and by war, by a mighty hand, and an outstretched arm, by terrors .. greater terrors! All according to that the Lord your God accomplished for you in Egypt.
To you it was shown, that He Is God! And there is no other beside Him. Because, He loved your ancestors and chose their descendants.
He brought you out of Egypt with His own Presence.
He made a Covenant with you at His Holy mountain.”
So Moses repeated all the major Commandments to Israel and reminded them to..
“LOVE THE LORD WITH ALL YOUR HEART, AND WITH ALL YOUR SOUL, AND ALL OF YOUR MIGHT.”
“Now what does the Lord require of you? to walk in His ways, to serve Him with all your heart?”
“Don’t be stubborn and rebellious any longer, for the Lord your God is the God of gods, the Great, Mighty, Terrible God, who executes justice, who feeds the hungry and clothes the poor and naked.”
GOD’S GOAL FOR HIS PEOPLE.
This also applies to us today.
1. That they will have the Highest Praise among the nations of this earth.
2 .That they should have the Highest Name among the nations.
3. That they should have the Highest Honour of all nations.
4. That they should be a Holy People to Jehovah.
5. And be the Greatest Nation on all of the earth.
6. That Israel should be Peculiar to Him.
God deeply desires and deserves obedience from those who are His own. We have been called out of the darkness of sin and are translated into His marvellous light, so ought not we obey Him also.

People say to me, “Heather, there is something missing in my life.” Loneliness on the inside, plagues them.
This is the reality of a person who is without “CHRIST.”
He is the One that “FILLS ALL IN ALL.”
This is can easily change if you, “draw near to God, and He will draw near to you.”
You may come to Him through the provision of the Son of His Love. See John 3:16. and Deuteronomy 27:12.
God does not demand obedience, He wants you to obey Him, because you obey Him with a heart of love. It is much easier when you are devoted to Him.
