“Give ear, O heavens, and I will speak, and let the earth hear the words of my mouth. May my teaching drop as the rain, my speech distill as the dew, like gentle rain upon the tender grass, and like showers upon the herb. For I will proclaim the name of the LORD; ascribe greatness to our God!" - Deuteronomy 32:1-3
Spring is upon us with the early rains as well. Such days may seem dreary, but they are greatly needed for beautiful flowers to blossom and the landscape to be deep green. The best rain falls gently on the tender grass and afterward, the fragrance is intoxicating. Spring is glorious, but it can't compare to the greatness of God Himself.
As Moses began to sing the song that the Lord gave him, he called attention specifically to the character of God. There was a great history of God's provision, protection and promises fulfilled. But, over and above all these wonderful works, Moses proclaims the name of the LORD and all that He was to his people. Miracles are glorious, but they can't compare to the greatness of God Himself.
What are you rejoicing in today my friend? What are you thanking God for this morning? Are you excited about the spring weather, good health, a bonus in your paycheck, a new baby in your family? All this is a great blessing, but when have you simply focused on the person of your God and His very nature? His works are certainly glorious, but they can't compare to the greatness of God Himself.
