Wesley's Notes for Deuteronomy 10:15


10:15 To love them - He shews that God had no particular obligation to their fathers, any more than to other persons or people, all being equally his creatures, and that his choice of them out of and above all others, proceeded only from God's good pleasure.

    I see that God chooses His leaders particularly, to lead in various areas of life . Be aware of your surrounding, as you worship be aware of Gods instructions there's always situations that need a true child of God to intervene or lead boldly. YOU MAY NEVER KNOW THE PLAN OF GOD FOR ALL HIS CHILDREN THROUGH YOU.

    Charity, like. Moses said the LORD said unto me, Arise... God chose Moses to be a deliverer of the people of Israel. That also meant a leader and prince who was coming to the end of their journey in the desert or wilderness. The battle for the promised land was to begin before Israel crossed the Jordan river and Moses was to lead them through instructing and praying for them as the fought the giants of the land like Sihon and og. Glory be to God in the highest through our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ. Amen!

  • Possibly foreshadowing the coming of Yeshua Jesus out of the tribe of Levi through his mother. Yeshua alone lived perfectly, according to our Father 's will. He fulfilled every law to the letter, the true way it was written to teach us the Way to the Father.
