When the children of Israel were told by Moses to possess the land the Lord had promised them, they did not celebrate, pack up their bags, and rush to take hold of their inheritance. Instead, they sent out men to allegedly determine the best route to go and the best cities to seek. Bottom line? They were afraid. I have often been the same. How about you?
When men returned with a good report, they chose instead to believe a negative report and began to complain. They stayed afraid. I have often done the same. How about you?
They were so afraid that they made up their minds they knew exactly what God would do. They did not believe the truth about God, but instead believed a lie. They decided God hated them and had delivered them from bondage in Egypt to hand them off to the giants to be destroyed. I have often believed lies instead of the truth about God. How about you?
Moses reminded them that God had delivered them from bondage in Egypt AND carried them through the wilderness, but they chose fear rather than remember all God had done for them already. I have often lived in fear instead of remembering the countless ways the Lord has demonstrated His love for me throughout my entire life. How about you?
When these people chose fear over love, when they chose to fight their battle without God instead of to believe that God would go before them and fight for them, they acted “presumptuously.” In other words, they walked out of God’s will and into the strength of their own flesh. I have often done the same. How about you?
They missed God’s best because their eyes were not watching God, and their hearts were not believing Him. They looked to the world rather than to the Word. I have often done the same. How about you?
When they failed in the battle they fought without God, they came running to God to cry to Him. I have often done the same. How about you?
God would not hear their cry and called them an “evil generation”.
Through the years, I have made all the mistakes the children of Israel made. How about you?
But my story does not end with the Lord ignorning my cry. My story does not end with God calling me an “evil generation.” In fact, my story is not over yet.
In many ways, my story has just begun. Through faith in the Messiah Jesus, I have been forgiven for the mistakes I have made. Through faith in the Messiah Jesus, I have been given another chance. Through faith in the Messiah Jesus, I am entering the Promised Land. Through faith in the Messiah Jesus, I am learning to walk in the spirit rather than in the flesh. I am learning to let the Lord go before me to fight the battle.
Through faith in the Messiah Jesus, I am learning to follow Him. I am bound and determined to inherit all that He has for me. How about you?
I remember well that He has brought me out of bondage in Egypt. I remember well that He has carried me through the wilderness like a child. How about you?
I have every intention of walking into the fullness of the Promised Land. God has carried me all this way and had mercy on me every time I have fallen. I know He will carry me all the way to victory. Into the Promised Land.
Deu 1:21 “Behold, the LORD thy God hath set the land before thee: go up and possess it, as the LORD God of thy fathers hath said unto thee; fear not, neither be discouraged.
Deu 1:22 And ye came near unto me every one of you, and said, We will send men before us, and they shall search us out the land, and bring us word again by what way we must go up, and into what cities we shall come.
Deu 1:23 And the saying pleased me well: and I took twelve men of you, one of a tribe:
Deu 1:24 And they turned and went up into the mountain, and came unto the valley of Eshcol, and searched it out.
Deu 1:25 And they took of the fruit of the land in their hands, and brought it down unto us, and brought us word again, and said, It is a good land which the LORD our God doth give us.
Deu 1:26 Notwithstanding ye would not go up, but rebelled against the commandment of the LORD your God:
Deu 1:27 And ye murmured in your tents, and said, Because the LORD hated us, he hath brought us forth out of the land of Egypt, to deliver us into the hand of the Amorites, to destroy us.
Deu 1:28 Whither shall we go up? our brethren have discouraged our heart, saying, The people is greater and taller than we; the cities are great and walled up to heaven; and moreover we have seen the sons of the Anakims there.
Deu 1:29 Then I said unto you, Dread not, neither be afraid of them.
Deu 1:30 The LORD your God which goeth before you, he shall fight for you, according to all that he did for you in Egypt before your eyes;
Deu 1:31 And in the wilderness, where thou hast seen how that the LORD thy God bare thee, as a man doth bear his son, in all the way that ye went, until ye came into this place.
Deu 1:32 Yet in this thing ye did not believe the LORD your God,…”
