Moses was in the final stretch, but that didn’t slow him down one bit. From the moment he learned he wasn’t going into the Promised Land, Moses started praying for the next man up. He asked God for a man “who will guide them wherever they go and lead them into battle, so the community of the Lord will not be like a sheep without a shepherd”
The book of Deuteronomy is a series of sermons Moses gave to prepare the people for life in the Promised Land. In this last session of our four-part series, Choose Life, we focus on faith, choices, and finishing well.
When Moses finished writing all the words of the Law in a book, he instructed the priests to place it near the ark of the covenant for safekeeping. Then he summoned the elders and officers of each tribe to stand before him, with newly commissioned Joshua by his side. Then Moses spoke the words of the song that Israel would be taught for generations to come. It was a song that only God could give him because it traces Israel’s story from their wilderness beginnings to the end of time.
The Song of Moses is divided into four parts, highlighting each characteristic below
- God’s Character
- God’s Kindness
- God’s Chastening
- God’s Vengeance
- Deuteronomy 32
