SUMMARY: Finish strong
OVERVIEW: Instead of being bitter that he is not entering the promised land, Moses encourages Israel to follow their all-powerful, loving, and loyal God faithfully.
BIG IDEA: Equip others to know God and to love him.
KEY VERSE: Deuteronomy 32:3–4 (Moses to Israel)
I will proclaim the name of the Lord; how glorious is our God! He is the Rock; his deeds are perfect. Everything he does is just and fair. He is a faithful God who does no wrong; how just and upright he is!
IF GOD WROTE YOU A LETTER
Don’t forget who I am. I am a rock. My works are perfect, and all my ways are just. I am faithful and will always provide as I have in the past. If you’ve forgotten, ask your family members and friends who are older. Listen to their stories and remember. Think of the ways I have provided. I’ve shielded you and cared for you. You’ve always been the apple of my eye.
I am all-powerful and don’t need you or anyone for my will to be done. Even when you’ve deserted me or gone your own way or trusted others to provide for you, I have remained faithful. I will always love you and want to empower you to be a positive influence. I want you to be part of something great. Regardless of what’s going on in your life, I am at work in you and those around you. Join me in making an eternal impact.
Always leave a room, a conversation, a job, etc., with your reputation and God’s reputation intact. Is there an exit you need to prepare for or a previous one for which you need to apologize?
