At the age of 120, Moses is about to die. Listen to his final words to the people on the brink of the Promised Land. From the shores of the Red Sea, to the banks of the Jordan, God has been with his people. If God has been with them thus far, will God not be present in all the challenges to come?
There is an awesome silence as the people they listen to Moses. After the reading, linger and listen in the silence of your own prayer to the support, encouragement and love that God gives you; the Spirit brings to your mind how the Lord has always been with you, no matter what. What about the struggles you are facing? The same power that raised Jesus from the dead has been given to you and will be at work for you today.
Lord, You give me everything. 2:36
It is You who fights for me. 3:22
You with me not matter what
Resurrection-power at work

Saturdays are dedicated to the Sabbath Torah portions
read in synagogues throughout the world.
This plan follows those traditions that take a third of the portion
over a three year cycle, this year, the third part.

The Jewish Theological Seminary.
The Firestarters and readings are posted in the timezone UTC+12, so that they are available in New Zealand and other regions near the International Date Line.
