Day 14 devotion, 90 Days through the Bible

Readings Day 14 – Deuteronomy 8:1-23:11

A refrain we hear in this section of the Old Testament is this; “Remember that you were slaves in Egypt and the Lord your God redeemed you.” (Deuteronomy 15:15) Similar words to that are heard now and again in Deuteronomy. They remind me of Jesus’ words when he said; “Do this (celebrate this meal of thanks) in remembrance of me.” (Luke 22:19 and 1 Corinthians 11:23-25)

We are to live remembering all that God has done for us and be guided by it all. It is God who has redeemed us. It is God who has given us life. We’re to live remembering all God did and open to seeing what God is doing even this day.

One reason we’re reading the Bible cover to cover is just this, to put into our memory banks all God has done and open ourselves up to God’s mighty acts of even today.

How you doing on your readings? I’ve heard that some are ahead in their readings, so keeping up and some falling a little behind. If you’ve gotten a little behind, carve out some time today to spend a little extra time in God’s word and begin catching up. The discipline of reading fourteen pages or so of God’s word every day, has really helped me stop everything in the evening and spend time with God. It’s been a blessing to me.

May God bless each of us as we remember what God has done, so God’s activities of the past can guide us even today.

O Lord, God, I give thanks for your deliverance of your people long ago and how you deliver me even today from my sinfulness and brokenness and then bless me with new life. This day, may I bring a gift in proportion (See Deuteronomy 16:17) to the way you have blessed me, namely my whole life. Amen.

Reading for Day 15; Deuteronomy 23:12 – 34:12
