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]

"Love and they will know we are Christians by our love" remember singing that song? I find it helps when I want to curse my enemies or anyone difficult to love! Specially family members. People who have betrayed us, hurt us! "Father help me forgive them . Help me show them love" we can win people over by our love. We can't do it on our own strength but only with Gods power and might.

I think sometimes we get in the middle of a battle and forget what we are fighting for...if we focus on the battle and not God, we can fall. But if we focus on God, the battle is already won.
