“Yet I have been the LORD your God since the land of Egypt; and you were not to know any god except Me, for there is no Savior beside Me.” (13:4)
It’s important to remember, the LORD doesn’t want us to have idols because they are worthless, not because He is insecure and demanding. There is no Savior beside Him. It is a dangerous waste of time to look to, sacrifice or submit to anything else.
“it is your destruction, O Israel, that you are against me, against your help.” (13:9)
He isn’t trying to ruin our fun, He is saving our lives.
“Whoever is wise, let him understand these things; whoever is discerning, let him know them. For the ways of the LORD are right, and the righteous will walk in them, but transgressors will stumble in them.” (14:9)
This is the ultimate pro tip.
There is so much to glean from this beautiful book! What else stood out to you? I will claim the promise, that God is right and trustworthy. His love is the wisest, safest place to dwell. I want to always remember this incredible love and daily check my devotion.
