What Does Deuteronomy 33:27 Mean?

"The eternal God is a dwelling place, And underneath are the everlasting arms; And He drove out the enemy from before you, And said, 'Destroy!'

Deuteronomy 33:27(NASB)

Verse Thoughts

Little by little the eternal Lord of the universe and the omniscient creator of humanity graciously unveiled Himself to mankind and Moses discovered Him to be a refuge and a dwelling place.

He discovered Him to be a place of protection in the storms of life and a source of comfort in the trials that surrounded the children of Israel in their pilgrimage, through their wilderness walk - for underneath are His everlasting arms, to uphold and to support - to embrace and to save in the midst of the enemies that surrounded them.

Moses found Him to be gentle to His people while His mighty power and everlasting strength saved them from the enemies who sought their destruction.

Little by little the eternal Lord similarly unveils Himself to His people today, through His Word and by His Spirit. We too discover Him to be a Source of refuge and a dwelling place of safety.

We too find Him to be our protection in the midst of a crooked generation that seeks us harm us – and we too discover that the eternal God is indeed our refuge and strength, for underneath are His everlasting arms of support, strength and protection.

My Prayer

Loving Father the greatness of Your eternal majesty is only equalled by Your gracious love and support to Your children, who have trusted You as Saviour. Thank You that You are my refuge and strength amidst all the storms of life. Uphold me with Your righteous right hand I pray today and may I find rest for my soul in Your everlasting arms, in Jesus name I pray AMEN.
