RECEIVE, REITERATE AND RENEW
( Activate Your Mind, Eyes & Ears)
🌈 God’s Covenant Received : It was given to Israel at Mount Horeb (Sinai). ✒ Exodus 19:5.
🌈 God’s Covenant Reiterated : It was confirmed and reiterated in the wilderness. ✒ Deut 5:2-3.
🌈 God’s Covenant Renewed : Now when they were approaching the promised land, Moses renewed the covenant ✒ Deut 29: 1-14
📝 In his address to the Israelites as a nation , Moses recounted the history of Israel in three stages :
1) Redemption of Israel and Exodus from Egypt( v 2-3)
2) God’s provisions and protection in the wilderness( v 5-6)
3) Conquest of lands in the east of Jordan( v 7-8)
📝 Moses reminded the Israelites that they have seen all those events of deliverance, signs and wonders in Egypt and in the wilderness. But because of their disobedience and rebellion , the Lord did not enable them to fully understand. They could not activate their Mind to understand , Eyes to see and Ears to listen in God’s standard ( v 4 ).
📝 On that day Moses summoned all the Israelites ( v 1,10-11) and said that they were standing in the presence of the Lord , and God is making a covenant with them by sealing it with his oath (v 12-15) .
📌 Do we have a MIND that understands or EYES that see or EARS that hear ❓

The Bible says , “Ears that hear and eyes that see — the Lord has made them both ” ✒ Proverbs 20 :12 It is not talking only about our physical hearing and sight but also about our ability to listen and obey and to perceive and understand, which comes from the Lord.
