In Moses' final days, he addressed Israel with a solemn message from God emphasizing the importance of reaching out to accept and obey the terms of God's covenant with them.
The covenant was crystal clear—obedience resulted in blessings; disobedience brought a curse. In Deuteronomy 30:11-14, Moses declared God's command, "For this commandment which I command you today is not too difficult for you, nor is it out of reach. It is not in heaven, that you should say, 'Who will go up to heaven for us to get it for us and make us hear it, that we may observe it?' Nor is it beyond the sea, that you should say, 'Who will cross the sea for us to get it for us and make us hear it, that we may observe it?' But the word is very near you, in your mouth and in your heart, that you may observe it."
Just as it was in Moses' day, God is not out of reach nor does He make it difficult to have understanding of His commands. He is not hiding to avoid us, nor is He like the elusive carrot dangling before the horse, ever out of reach.
On the contrary, whoever will call (reach out) upon the name of the Lord (Jesus) will be saved. (See Romans 10:13) Have you reached out to Jesus lately?
