It is Time to Move On
Deuteronomy 1:6The LORD our God spake unto us in Horeb, saying, Ye have dwelt long enough in this mount:
Because of their unbelief and disobedience Israel had wandered in the wilderness for 40 years. Moses now addresses them as the time has come to enter the Promised Land. In spite of their disobedience God had provided their every need. God announced that they had been long enough at the mountain; it was time to make the next giant step in their spiritual journey.
I know it is easy for us to get settled into a comfortable life where our daily needs are being met and we are aware that God has been working in our lives. Then God decides it is time for us to take that next step, to actively seek opportunities to draw closer to Him. That probably means we step out of our comfort zones. Maybe He is asking you to get more involved in church. Maybe you have a musical gift that He wants you to use bless others. It could be you have the gift of comfort and it is now time to seek those who are discouraged to lift their spirits. You might be one of those who have the physical skills to help someone with repairs around the house. God is always looking for people who will set aside time every day to pray for others. Could you be that prayer warrior?
Is God saying to us, “Ye have dwelt long enough in this mount”.
