His great faithfulness...

"The LORD did not set his affection on you and choose you because you were more numerous than other peoples, for you were the fewest of all peoples.  But it was because the LORD loved you and kept the oath he swore to your forefathers that he brought you out with a mighty hand and redeemed you from the land of slavery, from the power of Pharaoh king of Egypt. Know therefore that the LORD your God is God; he is the faithful God, keeping his covenant of love to a thousand generations of those who love him and keep his commands." - Deut. 7:7-9

Reading through the Bible is a great discipline for so many reasons.  It causes you to slow down and place your priorities, it obviously brings you closer to God in your daily walk, it brings to light passages that you may have forgotten or never seen before, it causes you to rethink some passages after you have experienced a new event in life, etc.  One great reason that is timeless is the fact that reading through the Bible reminds us of God's faithfulness.  No matter what we have done or been through, He remains faithful.

I don't know that this is any more true than in Deuteronomy.  Moses is reminding the Israelites as they are about to enter the "promised land" that they are to remain faithful to the true God as He has remained faithful to them.  In the midst of this, he reminds them that God chose them out of all the peoples of the earth...not because of their greatness, not because of their numbers, but because of His love for them and because He was faithful.  Isn't that still true today?  Isn't that still the same God?  God is still faithful and keeps His promises.  It is not our strength or our greatness that is impressive...it is Him.  Humble yourself before the Lord today and be thankful to be part of His great plan.

In Christ,

Bro. Grant
