Deuteronomy was written by Moses and given to Israel as a covenant. The book provided the new generation of Israelites with the necessary foundation and motivation for inheriting the Promised Land by focusing on the nature of God and His covenant with Israel. God declared Himself to be mightier than every opposing power, force and ability. As believers in the body of Christ, we have been given the right and authority to exercise our power, because greater is He that is within us than he that is in the world.
When the new generation of Israelites prepared to enter the Promised Land, Moses spoke to the people and warned them of the new foes, new temptations, and told them of their new leadership. Moses reminded them of the Lord’s faithfulness and challenged them to be faithful and obedient to their God as they possessed the Promised Land. As Moses was addressing Israel before turning the leadership over to Joshua, they had come to the end of their wilderness wandering and were now ready to enter Land of Canaan. The people needed to be reminded of God’s covenant, law, and faithfulness, as well as be given a fresh declaration concerning the blessings of obedience and curse of disobedience.
The word declare used in Deuteronomy 1:5 means to engrave or explain, or make plain. Declare carries the meaning of making clear verbally, to state emphatically, to announce and to make known publicly. We have been given the responsibility of making our request known to God. We are to proclaim the goodness of God and speak out on His behalf.
First Chronicles 16:24 says to declare His glory among the nations, His wonders among all peoples. We are to declare God’s goodness to everyone. God reveals himself to us through Jesus Christ, that we might have the light of life within us by the presence of the Holy Spirit. Our mission is to proclaim the goodness of God, declare His power, walk in faith and trust Him. Fellowship with God necessitates walking in the light and obeying the Word of God. The one who practices righteousness is righteous, just as He is righteous, while whoever does not practice righteousness is not of God.
