March 11 – Deuteronomy 1-2

Below are my thoughts from the daily Bible reading of the West Side Church of Christ. Today’s reading comes from Deuteronomy 1-2. Before reading I invite you to pray and asked God to speak to you as you read his word.

Today we begin the fifth book of the Bible … Deuteronomy. Deuteronomy takes place at the end of the forty years in the Wilderness. It also takes place at the end of Moses’s life. Throughout this book we will see Moses recounting the deliverance of God, the giving of the Law, and the covenant he has established with them. If you want to get a complete sense of what God has done in the wilderness and the laws he has given this is the perfect book to read.

In our chapters today we read about the time in the wilderness roaming. A constant theme through the reading is God’s provisions. Throughout it all God provides the necessities. I think this is a great lesson for us. If God wants us to do something, he will provide what is needed. If God is asking you to step out on faith … do it, he will supply what you need. If you need more skills he will give you the opportunity to hone them. If you need more resources he will supply what you need when you need it. If you need more hands he will send just who he wants to get the job done. God did this time and time again with the Israelites and he will do it for you.

At West Side we are beginning a new prayer partner campaign. We are asking people to join with us in praying daily for West Side. If you would like to join us please click here and subscribe to receive daily emails containing a short prayer request for West Side. We appreciate your partnership.
