AWESOME GOD

Deuteronomy 32:4 

 

“The Rock, his work is perfect, for all his ways are justice. A God of faithfulness and without iniquity, just and upright is he.

 

 

LESSON

 

Moses called on the whole earth to listen to what follows. The “name” of God is the expression of His character as He revealed it to His people and the world. The purpose of the song is that everyone would recognize God as the “great God” He is, and that His people would respond to Him appropriately.

 

The description of God as “the Rock” occurs for the first time here in Scripture, but it appears many times later. This metaphor pictures God as a reliable Refuge and Foundation for His

people, on whom they could build, and who had been solidly faithful to them.

 

“He is the Rock,” a Rock indeed. If we speak of strength, He is strong; if of stability, He is the Lord, and changes not. He holds forth Himself in such a name to His people, a ready, all-sufficient, and enduring Refuge to all that trust in Him. This is the foundation that the Church is built on, against which the gates of hell shall not prevail. God’s omnipotency for defenses, His eternity, faithfulness, and unchangeableness to make that sure. His mercy and goodness make a hole in that Rock to enter in, a ready access for poor shipwrecked and broken men, who have no other refuge.

 

Memory Verse: Numbers 23:19
God’s wisdom is like the rainbow, in symmetry, beauty, and variety.
