Deuteronomy 32 – The Dew of Heaven


How does your speech and preaching drop? Does it beat like hail upon the ears; or does it come as depicted of the work of Christ?

“My doctrine shall drop as the rain, my speech shall distil  as the dew, as the small rain upon the tender herb, and as the showers upon the grass.” (vs. 2)

The dew distills almost imperceptibly on the grass of the field. No mean or harsh depiction of the doctrine of truth is presented here.

“He is the Rock, His work is perfect: for all His ways are judgment: a God of truth and without iniquity, just and right is He.” (vs. 4)

Doctrine like Rain

Man judges another according to preconceived judgments and according to biases stemming from this and that (without even realizing many times), but the Lord knows the beginning, the present, and the future of a matter. With these assurances, those that cast the anchor of their faith in the Most Holy Place of His abiding, may rest assured that their cases–no matter the lot or appearances of circumstances–are in the hands of a just and right God. And the peace that passes all understanding may come from His presence. However, much of the chapter is devoted to the condition and consequences of those whose work is to tear that anchor from within the veil to overthrow the hold upon God and serve to discourage.

May your anchor hold within that veil no matter the storm,
