Scripture Reading: Deutronomy 33:26. There is none like unto the God of Jeshurun, who rideth upon the heaven in thy help, and in his excellency on the sky.
Reflections: Moses ends his pronouncements of blessings on the tribes of Israel by declaring, “There is no one like the God of Jeshurun. By this he presents Jeshurun as another name for Israel. The word ‘Jeshurun’ means ‘upright’. The ‘God of Jeshurun’ therefore means God of the upright one. Thus Israel is labeled as the upright one. From their history however, we note that they were not totally an upright nation. They were sinful and suffered series of judgments. It is interesting therefore for God to refer to himself as the God of Jeshurun. There has to be a reason for this. The fact remains that God sees us as the final product that He intends us to become and He expects us to have the same perspective. By this we are motivated to yield to the change process which eventually gets us molded into into the upright ones. Paul Brown rightly concludes that by using the name ‘Jeshurun’, God reminds us that a crooked life can be made straight’. As Jeshurun, keep yielding to every change process until you become that straight line!
Prayer: Dear Lord, I thank you for seeing me as the final product you intend me to be. Help me to work towards it.
Confession: I work towards becoming the final product God intends me to be.
