If you have ever been with a dear person when he or she has died, you’ll be able to appreciate the book of Deuteronomy. It’s as though we are with Moses on his deathbed, as he gives us final instructions. Now don’t think that he gave this whole book on the point of his death, but it comes from his heart, for he knows that he is going to die before God’s people reach the Promised Land.
So listen to these words as though you are gathered with God’s people who hang on the words of their dear Moses whom God used to free them from slavery.
I love chapter 11, verses 18-21. These are the words of Moses that he longs for you and me to take to heart, for he won’t have the chance to encourage us much longer. I got the idea of wearing a Bible Breath Bracelet from these verses. To learn more, visit https://biblethroughseasons.com/bible-breaths/
