A Whole New World
Read Deuteronomy 32:1 through 34:12
God’s Promised Land, the land of Canaan, was a highly developed culture. Canaan produced textiles, milk products, tools, and weapons. The wealthy population of Canaan often lived in luxurious villas built around central courts. Life in Canaan was a far cry from the inhospitable desert in which the Israelites had lived.
They sacrificed to false gods, which are not God—gods they had not known, gods that recently appeared, gods your ancestors did not fear (Deuteronomy 32:17).
Moses’ song served to remind the Israelites about the blessings bestowed to them by God. His song also served to warn God’s people against forsaking their commitment to God in exchange for the godless lifestyle of the Canaanites. Compared to the desert, Canaan would indeed be enticing to a tired, dirty people.
The world has a lot to offer and much of what it offers is enticing and exciting. As Christians we have to guard our hearts against anything that might compromise our relationship with God. Not all that shimmers is gold.
Prayer Suggestion: Ask God to reveal any cultural ideas or possessions that might not please Him.

God's Word For Today is available from Gospel Publishing House.
Prayer is our link with God, an awesome avenue through which we can express praise and adoration to Him for His goodness, love, and mercy; and an avenue through which we can voice our petitions and concerns. God's Word assures us that we can "come boldly unto the throne of grace, that we may obtain mercy, and find grace to help in time of need" (Hebrews 4:16).
Prayer also moves the hand of God on behalf of needs and circumstances in our church, our families, our community, nation, and world. Take time to pray and intercede for these areas as God leads you. Become part of a prayer group and intercede with others in times of corporate prayer. As you seek God's help, expect reports of great victory to follow as God answers prayer.
