"But ye that did cleave unto the Lord your God are alive everyone of you this day. Behold, I have taught you statutes and judgments, even as the Lord my God commanded me, that ye should do so in the land whither ye go to possess it. Keep therefore and do them;" Deuteronomy 4:4-6a
AT HIS TABLE:
Moses isn't exactly the brother of Barry Gibb and Barry isn't exactly singing about Stayin Alive for God either. The hit song from the Bee Gees called "Stayin Alive" is not talking about your soul and how to live for God. Moses is truly concerned as a leader of his people and is instructing them in the way to remain alive in harsh times. He is urging obedience to God in the midst of a desert journey that was grueling, painful, laborious, and physically and mentally pressing with daily exertion upon all on this journey. Moses had his hands full!
THE SONG WE SING IS…
Moses wasn't singing this hit song “Stayin Alive!” He was singing, “Help us God!" And God did help them, all the way through! Moses was told to tell them to cleave unto the Lord and to keep his commandments each day. How will we survive? Stayin Alive is through staying close to God! Cleave to God, keep his word near, even in your heart, study, pray, and share all things about Jesus and at the end of this seemingly darkened tunnel or time in your life, there is Jesus with open arms! At the end of the day you can break out into praise because your closeness to God has kept you alive through it all! Jesus is the way and by remaining close to him we will be able to sing a new song, Stayin Alive!
"For what nation is there so great, who hath God so nigh to them, as the Lord our God is in all things that we call upon him for?" Deuteronomy 4:7
At the end of the day you will see that you have survived and all will say about Jesus, "For what nation is there so great" because he has kept you alive through it all!
GOD IS OUR SHIELD THROUGH IT ALL!
