heading to a fall

Psalm 106:24-27 (JDV)

Psalm 106:24 They rejected the pleasant land and did not believe his promise.
Psalm 106:25 They grumbled in their tents and did not listen to Yahveh.
Psalm 106:26 So he raised his hand against them with an oath that he would make them fall in the open country
Psalm 106:27 and would disperse their descendants among the nations, scattering them throughout the lands.

If you were walking toward a cliff, heading to a disastrous fall, would you want to know it? The first two verses of today’s passage outline the dangerous decisions that sealed the fate of the Israelites in the wilderness.

They had rejected God’s plan for them, wanting something else.
They did not believe in God’s promise to their ancestors.
They complained about their present situation.
They did not listen to Yahveh when he spoke his word through Moses.

As a result, God chose to let them fall in the wilderness and to scatter their descendants among the nations.

Forgive us LORD for failing to believe your promises, and for the sin of complaining. Teach us to trust your sovereignty over today and your commitment for tomorrow.
