As powerful as God is, He cannot operate beyond our ability to believe Him. He promised Abraham that he would have a family line that was blessed and have their own land. He confirmed this promise to Abraham’s descendants. After all those years, the children of Israel were ready to go into the land.
And, as much as God wanted them to go into the land, He could not force them to go. The spies confirmed everything God said about the land and they even brought back evidence that it was a prosperous land. Yet, Israel did not think there were worthy to enter in.
After Moses prays for the people, God instructs them to turn around and go back to the region around the Red Sea. Are there areas in your own life where you have worked against your own future? Are you stuck in life? Check to see if you have disbelieved God’s promises or disobeyed His direct commands.
If so, repent and start moving towards your future. Don’t waste another day in the wilderness!
