Deuteronomy 2:1-3:29

Something I noticed with Israel and her wars, God gave them victory before they went to battle, ergo, God gives us the Victory over our enemies (addictions; stress; bad health; people who come against us because we are believers—whatever conflicts with a Kingdom loving, God centered lifestyle); however, we must go into the battle. I heard this from my pastor’s wife about three/four weeks ago. “Running from the battle qualifies you for captivity.”

"Get up, make your way across Wadi Arnon. Look! I have already delivered over to you Sihon the Amorite, king of Heshbon, and his land. Go ahead! Take it! Engage him in war! ... The LORD said to me, "Look! I have already begun to give over Sihon and his land to you. Start right now to take his land as your possession."
(Deuteronomy 2:24, 31 NET.)

I was also tying to find the post that someone wrote (I think it was Andrew B, but I could be mistaken), when we first got into Deuteronomy, that Moses was playing the “Blame Game,” and at the end of our readings sure enough Moses again blames the “crowd” for his inability to enter the Promise Land.

But the LORD was angry at me because of you and would not listen to me. Instead, he said to me, "Enough of that! Do not speak to me anymore about this matter.
(Deuteronomy 3:26 NET.)

Grace and peace and Make it a Blessed Day!! Don’t allow circmstances and other people to control whether a day is blessed or not—Take charge [That encouragement if from me also, self-speak spoken (written) out-loud]


I LOVE to read the Beatitudes, I try to live up to them but I do not think I will ever live up to them.

Persevere! Yes, never give up. Ask the Holy Spirit to help you and He most certainly will.

I always feel so sad when I read about how Moses does not get to go into the promised land. God knows best, of course, but it still makes me feel bad for Moses. Love in Christ. HUGS!!

I wonder did Moses know what he did wrong???? Or does he REALLY believe that it is the others fault that he doesn't get to go to the promised land??? Anyone??

Moses was blaming the people because they were moaning in the desert. Out of anger and frustration the second time at the rock instead of obeying God's instruction for him to speak to the rock, he out anger hit the rock and then God said it is because of your disobedience you will not enter the promise land. Moses asked whether he could just enter ... See Morethe promise land to look at it and God said no. God then told Moses to go up to the mountain and He then viewed the promise land from up there and then God took Moses home.
