Happy Are You

“Happy are you, O Israel:
Who is like you, a people saved by the Lord,
The shield of your help
And the sword of your majesty!” Deuteronomy 33:29

We might watch a movie or read a book about a brave person saving someone of nobility. But how many stories have we read of the poor and downtrodden being saved by a King?

Thank You, Father, for saving Your people Israel and for sending us all a Savior King through them. And here’s a simple poem . . .

Who Is Like You?

We look back and perhaps think
it was no big thing
that Israel entered into a covenant
with their Lord God Almighty

but never before
had such a thing been done
and now we can too
through Jesus Christ His Son.

God To Us

“All of you stand today before the Lord your God. . .that you may enter into covenant with the Lord your God, and into His oath, which the Lord your God makes with you today, that He may establish you today as a people for Himself, and that He may be God to you . . .” Deuteronomy 29:10,12,13

Here in Deuteronomy, Moses is doing his best to make sure the people understand who they are to God and who He is to them.

O Lord, may nothing ever keep me from letting You be God in every way to me. And here’s a simple poem . . .

His Wonders

Come
enter in with Me
step forward
into all that can be
and let Me be
God to you
living out the wonders
only I can create
and do
through you.

The Faithful God

“Therefore know that the Lord your God, He is God, the faithful God, who keeps covenant and mercy for a thousand generations with those who love Him, and keep His commandments.” Deuteronomy 7:9

The God who was faithful and merciful to Israel then is still faithful and merciful to her now. And to us as well.

O Lord, we desire to love You with all our hearts, minds, souls and strength today. And here’s a simple poem . . .

None Like Him

For what God
is like our God
forever faithful
forever true
able to
keep promises
full of love
and mercy too.

Seasoned

“And every offering of your grain offering you shall season with salt, you shall not allow the salt of the covenant of your God to be lacking from your grain offering. With all your offerings you shall offer salt.” Leviticus 2:13

There is nothing bland about our covenant relationship with God.

Thank You, Jesus, for seasoning us and knowing how to bring out our best flavor . . .glory to You!

Just Right

Seasoned toward perfection
by the Master Chef
lovingly placed upon the fire
and that is where we’re left
to be a sweet aroma
a holy offering
a pleasing sacrifice
to the glory of our King.
