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 circumstances 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]


Mike, Thanks for the pep talk about wandering around with this sin over our heads and it feeling like doom. There is a Promised Land and we can find the freedom through Jesus. I would like to suggest a wonderful way to have that help that is available through the many different “freedom sessions” that are available all over North America. My own church has had several weekend ones. These will all be starting up as Covid diminishes. Google: freedom sessions near me. They are also on Facebook. https://www.facebook.com/freedomsession/

Deuteronomy 2:25
“This very day I will begin to put terror and fear of you on all the nations under heaven”. In my mind this is one of the reasons Israel was always considered so powerful because of their God and His favor towards them. (Me too even as a Gentile). Throughout history this reputation has preceded them; even to this day they are a force to be reckoned with!

Psalm 67 supports how the one and only God blesses his people and all will respect him.

Luke 6:27-41

Loving your enemies and judging others. This section is a great read for those raising children. Generally speaking you train your kids by:
1. What you say.
2. How you do things or how you model your behavior and actions.
3. Your authenticness.
4. Making it a priority to “play fair”, and remember you can “fight” another day.

Can you see how deviating from any of these will probably teach them the wrong way too.

Just today I was helping a coworker to look at positive and see light at end of a tunnel. We must have hope and trust God. He is our provider. Amen
