Morning Reading: Deuteronomy 18:18 NLT
I will raise up a prophet like you from among their fellow Israelites. I will put my words in his mouth, and he will tell the people everything I command him.
Morning Reading: Deuteronomy 34:10-12 NLT
There has never been another prophet in Israel like Moses, whom the Lord knew face to face.

With mighty power, Moses performed terrifying acts in the sight of all Israel.
Morning Reading: Matthew 4:23 NLT
Jesus traveled throughout the region of Galilee, teaching in the synagogues and announcing the Good News about the Kingdom. And he healed every kind of disease and illness.
Lord God Almighty: You gave the prophet Moses to Israel – You knew him face to face.
+ Thank You for this encouraging example of Your relationship with flawed humanity.
+ Thank You for speaking through Moses words of command, words of guidance, and words of prophecy.
+ Thank You for working through Moses to perform signs and wonders for all to see.
Lord God Almighty: You gave Your Son, Jesus, to the world – Your glory revealed and coming again.
+ Thank You for this matchless gift of love come down, love moving among us, and love sacrificed for us.
+ Thank You for the break out of Your Kingdom in Jesus’ person, presence and power.
+ Thank You for the promise of His immanent return to bring all things under His Kingship.
Lord God Almighty: During this season of preparation and waiting, quiet our hearts and calm our spirits – that we may rest in You and enter into Your promised peace. Through Jesus Christ, Your Son, who reigns with You and the Holy Spirit, now and forever. Amen.
“No Other Like You” – Chris Quilala – Jesus Culture Music
You were innocent and condemned | Broken and You bore our sins | Laid Your life down | Through the sacrifice of Your son | The power of death was overcome | Laid Your life down on the cross
There’s no other like You, nothing compares to Your great Love | Highly exalted, forever seated on the throne | We stand in awe of You, We stand in awe of You | Nothing else compares God | We stand in awe of You
By the blood of Christ, we boldly come | All of heaven welcomes us | Lord we thank You for the cross
We will exalt You | Forever, forever | We will worship | Forever, forever
Christ, as a light illumine and guide me. Christ, as a shield overshadow me. Christ under me; Christ over me; Christ beside me on my left and my right. This day be within and without me, lowly and meek, yet all-powerful. Be in the heart of each to whom I speak; in the mouth of each who speaks unto me. This day be within and without me, lowly and meek, yet all-powerful. Christ as a light; Christ as a shield; Christ beside me on my left and my right.
He who is the faithful witness to all these things says, “Yes, I am coming soon!” Amen! Come, Lord Jesus! May the grace of the Lord Jesus be with God’s holy people. (Revelation 22:20-21 NLT)
+ In the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit. Amen
