“There is no one like the God of Jeshurun, who rides the heavens to help you, and in His excellency on the clouds.” Deuteronomy 33:26
In these last words of Moses we have the glory of God set forth, in the communication of good to God’s Israel. God has created the whole universe for Himself. His throne is heaven, where He makes the chief display of His dignity and dominion.
The scenes with which we are conversant, subject as they are to such continual changes and revolutions, may be compared to the wheels of His chariot. His providence is represented by the motion of the wheels; He brings to pass His own counsels in the lower world and manages and directs all, as a man does his chariot, which he turns as it pleases him. How safe, then, must they be who are under the wing of the God of Jeshurun, who find Him reconciled to them by the death of His Son, and feel themselves reconciled to Him by the power of His grace! “He rides the heavens” for their help, and none can outstrip His progress or overturn his purpose. He it is that gives strength and victory to His people; blessed be God!
Reader, is the God of Jeshurun, the God of Israel, your God? Is He who rides on the heavens your help? Does your heart trust in Him alone, and His grace subdue your outward iniquities and your inbred corruptions? Then whatever be your outward condition, you are secure from the worst evils and shall soon be delivered from all. But except the God of Jeshurun be your help, you are in imminent peril.

to give a reason for the Hope that you have (1 Peter 3:15). When you can’t share the gospel with your words, share it by leaving tracts that tell people about God's grace.
When leaving a tract, always be diligent to pray about the short gospel message. Pray that it be found by someone who is in need of Jesus’ saving grace, and pray that the person will have a tender heart and open ears to receive the gift Jesus desires to give them.
By the power of the Holy Spirit, even a small tract can help in turning a broken sinner from darkness to light.
