I completed my readings of Leviticus during my morning devotion time yesterday and today began reading Deuteronomy.

Deuteronomy begins with an overview of God’s providence and mercy in the life of Israel throughout their wilderness wanderings and I shut the bible with a great thankfulness for God and His mercy over his children.
“Without thy sweet mercy I could not live here! Sin would reduce me to utter dispair. But through thy free goodness my spirits revive and he that first made me still keeps me alive…”
