The assignment God gave Moses was to bring the children of Israel out of Egypt so they could enter into the promised land that God had planned for them.

If Moses’ relationship with God was founded on entering the promised land, he would have given up at the waters of Meribah as soon as God declared that after a journey through the desert for 40 years, he would never set his foot in that land of promise (Numbers 20:12).

But his relationship with God was based on God’s sufficiency. Though at times he questioned, he doubted and even complained, he continued to obey the voice of God not because of a promised blessing but because he was a servant and God was his Master.  

The real promised land for Moses and for every true believer is the Kingdom of God, I mean eternal life. 

Don’t lose sight of that.

Are you wandering in the desert of life’s ups and downs?

Are you facing the consequences of disobedience to God’s Word?

Are you tempted right now to complain or give up believing in God’s promise?

Remember, faith is not real without God’s promise. As Apostle Paul said in 2 Corinthians 4:17, “for our light and momentary troubles are achieving for us an eternal glory that far outweighs them all.”

The promise of redemption, of eternal life is the sole end and purpose of all our activities here on earth. Whatever you do, don’t miss that Promised Land! 

THE PILOT IN COMMAND

“Those who serve God with their heart are those who allow God to give birth to their heart’s desires. These are those who put God to where He really belongs: not in the luggage compartment, not in economy class, not in business class not in first class by in the cockpit !!! For them God IS THE PILOT IN COMMAND. Their heart is the cockpit where God dwells and files the flight plan: God decides the destination and the itinerary leading safely to that place at God’s appointed time.”

THE MOST PRECIOUS THING

“If we were to see things the way God does, we would see the immense value of godly character that comes from loving God and shunning evil. In fact, it is the most precious thing that we possess in God’s sight.”

GOD’S APPOINTMENT IN THE WILDERNESS

“Ask anyone and they will tell you that they long to hear from God, to have a personal encounter with Him, to know His will and direction for their life. But many of us fail to realize that often God gives us an appointment in the wilderness.”
