Praise of Moses

Praise of Moses

Deuteronomy 34 – Praise of Moses My daily, cover-to-cover bible read concluded today with the praise of Moses. To summarize Deuteronomy chapter 34 in twenty-five words or less I would say; Moses views the Promised Land from Nebo. The death and burial of Moses, The mourning of the people. Joshua succeeds Moses, The praise of Moses. Not to abiding of literature rules, but hey I got the job done. Deuteronomy Chapter 34 was a very quick read, being only 12 verses. The chapter begins with Moses unwilling to leave his work. After finally completing all that needed to be done he began creating the feeling of willingness to die. The Lord came to him and vowed that Moses should be able to view the Promised Land. God shows Moses the promise land, although he cannot enter it, after this, Moses dies on Mount Nebo. God reserves the brightest discoveries of his grace to his people to support their dying moments. Those may leave this world with cheerfulness, which die in the faith of Christ, and in the hope of heaven. Moses obeyed the commands of God as willingly as any other.

We must walk in the ways in which He has appointed us to walk. We must serve Him with all our heart and soul. We must keep His commandments, because there is true honor and pleasure in obedience.
