Deuteronomy 2

The Israelites wander in the desert.

INSIGHT

David writes that God withholds no good thing from those who walk uprightly. But we see that it is possible, through rebellion,
to miss something good that God wants to give us.

God wants to give the Israelites the Promised Land. But when they refuse to enter it, they wander through the wilderness until the rebellious generation dies. Then that which God had wanted to give to them, He gives to someone else-the next generation.

When we walk in rebellion, we pay a price. God's blessings often include a test. Do we turn back? Or trust Him?

PRAYER

· We can express trust in Him with a psalm of praise:

For I know that the Lord is great,
And our Lord is above all gods.
Whatever the Lord pleases He does,
In heaven and in earth,
In the seas and in all deep places.
He causes the vapors to ascend from the
ends of the earth;
He makes lightning for the rain
(Psalms 135:5-7).

· As you seek to keep your life free from sin, pray this passage of confession to the Lord:

O God, You know my foolishness;
And my sins are not hidden from You.
Let not those who wait for You, O Lord
God of hosts, be ashamed because of me;
Let not those who seek You be confounded
because of me, O God of Israel
(Psalms 69:5-6).

· As you confess your sins, voice your affirmation of God's Word:

Let not the wise man glory in his wisdom,
Let not the mighty man glory in his might,
Nor let the rich man glory in his riches;
But let him who glories glory in this,
That he understands and knows Me,
That I am the Lord, exercising
lovingkindness, judgment, and
righteousness in the earth
(Jeremiah 9:23-24).

· As you make your requests known to the Lord, pray for:
· greater passion for moral integrity,
· the ministry of Christian education institutions,
· the concerns of your heart.

· Offer this prayer of worship to God:

Now may the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace in believing, that you may abound in hope by the power of the Holy Spirit (Romans 15:13).
