Deuteronomy 1;32-33 (JDV)
Deuteronomy 1:32 But in this matter you did not trust Yahveh your God,
Deuteronomy 1:33 who went ahead of you on the road to spy out a place for you to camp. He went in the fire by night to guide you on the road you were to travel and in the cloud by day.
you did not trust
The Israelites knew that God was there and saw plenty of evidence that God was going before them. They failed because they refused to turn that knowledge into trust. They saw evidence of God’s movement and chose to interpret that by assuming that God was avoiding them. He was going ahead of them.
Lord, forgive our insecurity and mistrust. Teach us to see your movements and interpret them correctly.
