Deuteronomy 3:27-29 (JDV)
Deuteronomy 3:27 Go to the top of Pisgah and look to the west, north, south, and east, and see it with your own eyes, because you will not cross the Jordan.
Deuteronomy 3:28 But command Joshua and make him strong and tough, because he will cross over ahead of the people and enable them to inherit this land that you will see.’
Deuteronomy 3:29 So we stayed in the valley facing Beth-peor.
No, yes, yes
Moses got three answers to his prayer. He had prayed that he could see the promised land, and God’s answer was definitely no. But God did allow him the mountain-top experience of viewing it on Pisgah.
God’s third answer to Moses’ prayer was to give him a final mission. Training Joshua was to be his reward in this life.
Lord, teach us to find our joy in accomplishing your mission.
