I come now to the very last chapter of Deuteronomy and in this last chapter, I look at the last words of a great man Moses. It records his last days on this Earth and I just thought what a great life Moses had. What a life of adventure; a life of excitement; most of all, a life of walking with God and serving Him. And Moses's life really could be divided into three portions of forty years each. And I think the great preacher, DL Moody summarized it the best, Moses spent the first forty year of his life thinking that he is somebody; and then in the next forty years of his life he learnt that he is really a nobody; and in the last forty years of his life he realized that God can use anybody.
Moses was greatly used by God because he was greatly humbled by God. The book of Numbers tells us Moses is the meekest man on this Earth. And I see therefore that greatness is found in our meekness. That if we are lowly and humbled in heart, God can use us. It's the total opposite of what the world says. The world today tells you that you can believe in the giant, the potential in you. Well I rather say this that greatness is found when we know we are nothing and when we know that God is everything; that we are not so much believing in ourselves but we are believing in God in us. "Blessed are the poor in spirit: for theirs is the kingdom of heaven." (Matthew 5:3)
And really, greatness and blessings begin when we are recognizing we are nothing apart from God. So may Moses's life be an encouragement to you. Let us recognize that greatness is found in our meekness. God bless.
