Read Deuteronomy 3:12 to 5:33; Mark 7:24 to 8:13
When Caleb and Ciera got engaged, they became the center of their own universe. They sat near each other at every function. Whenever parted by work or other business, they kept up a constant chatter via text. The Israelites experienced a similar relationship with God during their travels in the desert.
What other nation is so great as to have their gods near them the way the Lord our God is near us whenever we pray to him? (Deuteronomy 4:7).
When one person draws near to another, this shows importance and a desire for relationship. God drew near to the Israelites because He wanted to be near them. When they raised their voices in prayer, He was right there.
God desires a close relationship with people today too. When God’s people pray, He hears. Talk to Him today and share your heart with Him. Your conversation delights Him.
Challenge For Today: Spend time today visiting with your God.
Quicklook: Deuteronomy 4:5–8
