DEVO 03.23.24

DEVO. 03.23.24

”Normally it takes only eleven days to travel from Mount Sinai to Kadesh-barnea, going by way of Mount Seir. But forty years after the Israelites left Egypt…” (‭‭Deuteronomy‬ ‭1‬:‭2‬-‭3‬ ‭NLT‬‬)

- Normally it takes 11 days but for the Israelites it took 40 years!

- Why?

- In verse 21 it says, ”Look! He has placed the land in front of you. Go and occupy it as the Lord, the God of your ancestors, has promised you. Don’t be afraid! Don’t be discouraged!’“

- ‭‭Those are simple instructions from the Lord but require an incredible trust.

- So where did they go wrong?

- V. 22 says, “But you all came to me and said, ‘First, let’s send out scouts to explore the land for us. They will advise us on the best route to take and which towns we should enter.’“

- ‭‭God said “Go and Occupy” and man said, “First, let’s send out scouts…”

- They said, “First let’s get man’s advice.”

- God said “Go”, and they said, “First, wait”

- God showed them a “green light” and man held up a “Caution sign”

- Be careful anytime you place man’s wisdom before God’s!

- God’s way will always cause you to step out in faith!

- Gods way will always take a risk.

- Gods way can never be accomplished, man’s way.

- When God speaks, the best thing to do is act!

- Isaiah 55:8 says, ”“My thoughts are nothing like your thoughts,” says the Lord. “And my ways are far beyond anything you could imagine. For just as the heavens are higher than the earth, so my ways are higher than your ways and my thoughts higher than your thoughts.“

- ‭‭Do you see that! His thoughts are “Nothing like” your thoughts.

- You will never find a better way through reasoning.

- You will never create a better path by scooping out the water and parting your own Red Sea.

- Gods way is direct! That means directly in the path of His will, His purpose and His plan!

- Gods way results in unexplainable miracles!

- Gods way is the way of the miraculous!

- So, has God spoken to you?

- If not, get alone with Him until He does.

- And when He does, don’t question, don’t reason, don’t calculate, just Act!

- Don’t take 40 years doing what He could do in 11 days!

- Have a great weekend!
