Today you should read: Deuteronomy 4:32-49
Deuteronomy 4:35 is such a great verse. It’s a verse that just summarizes the greatness of God and who He is.
You were shown these things so that you might know that the LORD is God; besides him there is no other. (NIV)
“He showed you these things so you would know that the LORD is God and there is no other. (NLT)
To you it was shown, that you might know that the LORD is God; there is no other besides him. (ESV)
“To you it was shown that you might know that the LORD, He is God; there is no other besides Him. (NASB)
There is none like God. Moses reminded the Israelites about this fact. Just before and after this verse he gave them a few reasons to be reminded that God had done such great things and there was no question that “He is God in heaven above and on earth below; there is no other.” (vs. 39)
God has done amazing things in all of our lives that cause us to say the same thing about Him that Moses said in verses 35 & 39. I thought it would be fun and encouraging today for us to share about some of the things we have seen God do in our lives that has caused us to realize that He is God above all things and there is none like Him.
So, would you take a minute to comment and tell us all at least one specific way that God made Himself known to you and proved Himself as the one true God above all things?
I’ll start. For me, God has transformed my life. If I had to write the story of my life 15 years ago, I never would have included the current chapter of my life that I am in now. I could never have conceived 15 years ago that I’d be doing what I am doing now. I never would have imagined that my life would revolve around the gospel. Simply put, my life has been transformed and God has shown me that He is above all.
OK, your turn.
