Deuteronomy 30:14 But the word is very nigh unto thee, in thy mouth, and in thy heart, that thou mayest do it.
God did not put His promise nor His Word far from them. He brought it near. He made it something within reach.
He is doing the same thing in the New Testament with each and every one of us. He has come to us. We could not get to Him. We do not have to try and get to Him. He loved us first. He came to us. He is here begging us through His men and women to trust Him. He has already done the work. All we must do is believe. We simply accept the free gift of His grace that is offered to us! II Corinthians 5.
