I’ve encouraged you this year to take up the challenge of reading through the Bible over the next two years. This means reading on average two chapters a day. If you’ve started this you will come to the book of Deuteronomy next month.
In this book you will find that God provides all we need to carry out His will. You’ve probably heard it said, “Where God guides He provides.” This is exemplified in Deuteronomy 2:7: “The Lord your God has blessed you in all the work of your hands. He has watched over your journey through this vast desert. These forty years the Lord your God has been with you and you have not lacked anything!”
When you read Deuteronomy you will notice that throughout Israel’s wilderness wanderings God abundantly provided for them. He gave them spiritual support through His law, moral support by repeating His promise to give them Canaan, protection by pledging His own presence and power, and guidance through the leadership of Moses and Joshua.
God’s provisions were abundant and all-embracing. His provisions met their needs and often exceeded them
Our needs are determined by our physical, social and spiritual circumstances. And these, in turn, are determined by our obedience to God’s guidance. Yes, and even when we at times are unfaithful, He remains faithful. Therefore, it’s true, where God guides He provides.
Keep that truth in mind when you read the book of Deuteronomy. Then keep it in mind as you seek to obey Him in all you do. You will not be disappointed.
