Deuteronomy 4:7 For what nation is there so great, who hath God so nigh unto them, as the LORD our God is in all things that we call upon him for?
Moses knows that his days of ministry are drawing to a close. He is telling the people of Israel how blessed they are. They are wiser than all the nations around them because they have the Word of God Deuteronomy 4:6. They need to obey what they have been taught so that those around them will continue to see the blessings.
There are no other nations so great and that is because they do not have such righteous laws. The Word of God was what made Israel what it was.
Not only that they had a God that was near to them, that would hear them when they pray. He was there God and was there for them in all that they called on Him for.
What a blessing to know the God of Heaven, to have His Word, to know that He hears and answers your prayers.
We are even more blessed today. We have His completed Word. He is not only nigh or near but lives in believers. We are His temple. He still hears and answers our prayer. He is God and He is good.
Do you ever thank Him who He is and what He does for and in you? Do you realize that when you hold the Bible in your hands that you are holding the very Word of God? Do you realize that the Bible gives you wisdom that this world does not have and will bless you beyond what they can understand?
I just hope today that you realize God is closer than close, closer than nigh or near. He lives in you if you are born again. He has given you His Word. Give Him all that you are and all that you have. He is worthy!
