Daily D – Deuteronomy 34:7
Deuteronomy 34:7 Moses was 120 years old when he died, yet his eyesight was clear, and he was as strong as ever. (NLT)
Moses had all the strength he needed for as long as he lived. On his dying day, he was still at his best, or considering where he died, we could say he was at his peak. The last thing he did was climb a mountain and have a look around.
What will you accomplish today?
You have heard that you should not compare your life with that of others. We do it anyway, don’t we? Wise advice? Do not compare your life with Old Mo. Consider verses 9-12 in this chapter. Verse 9 is about Joshua.
Now Joshua son of Nun was full of the spirit of wisdom, for Moses had laid his hands on him.
So the people of Israel obeyed him, doing just as the Lord had commanded Moses.
Full of the spirit of wisdom is good. Having people obey you is good. Now consider the bottom line of Old Mo’s life.
There has never been another prophet in Israel like Moses, whom the Lord knew face to face.
The Lord sent him to perform all the miraculous signs and wonders in the land of Egypt against Pharaoh, and all his servants, and his entire land.
With mighty power, Moses performed terrifying acts in the sight of all Israel.
Joshua was good. Moses was better.
Thou shalt not compare thyself with Moses. Instead, live the life of God’s dreams for you. God dreams bigger and better than us. His plans are accompanied by his provision. He leads amazing expeditions. He accomplishes impossible tasks. Nothing placed against him ever prevails. God wins. He can do anything but fail.
Today is a good day to begin an epic adventure.
I will live the life of God’s dreams for me.
Our Father, whatever you want, I want, too. Amen.

Deuteronomy 6:4-9 “Listen, Israel: The Lord our God, the Lord is one. Love the Lord your God with all your heart, with all your soul, and with all your strength. These words that I am giving you today are to be in your heart. Repeat them to your children. Talk about them when you sit in your house and when you walk along the road, when you lie down and when you get up. Bind them as a sign on your hand and let them be a symbol on your forehead. Write them on the doorposts of your house and on your city gates.“
