Deuteronomy 1:6-8 (JDV)

Deuteronomy 1:6 “Yahveh our God spoke to us at Horeb: and this is what he said: ‘You have stayed at this mountain long enough.

Deuteronomy 1:7 Turn and set out and go to the hill country of the Amorites and their neighbors in the Arabah, the hill country, the Judean foothills, the Negev and the sea coast – to the land of the Canaanites and to Lebanon as far as the great river, the Euphrates River.

Deuteronomy 1:8 See, I have given the land in your sight. Enter and take possession of1 the land Yahveh swore to give to your fathers Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob and their descendants after them.’

stayed long enough

God did not give modern day Christians the same mission that he gave the Israelites. We do not have a physical territory to invade and possess. But we do have a mission. There comes a time when we need a nudge from our sender because we have stayed long enough between the “do” and the “done.”

God has given us a permanent future, and a present mission. We have stayed long enough in our current position in between the deliverance and the assignment.

Lord, by your grace and power, we will move on.
