S. O. A. P.
Here’s Your 90 second AM Devotional!
Then the Lord said to me, “You have made your way around this hill country long enough; now turn north.”
These words of the Lord Almighty to Moses signaled a coming end to the Israelis’ long wandering in the Wilderness. It was right at 38 years that they had been sojourning in the wilderness when the Lord spoke to Moses and said, “It’s Been Long Enough.” At that point, they headed north and began their last trek toward their promised land.
This trip, some have said, could have taken as little as just eleven days. Yet it ended up taking forty years. Why? It was because of the doubt and fear exhibited by the nation when ten of the twelve spies Moses had sent in to spy out the promised land came back with a negative report. God then said, “Until all the fighting men over twenty years of age have died, I will cause you to wander in the wilderness.” When the last of those men had died, God said, “It’s Been Long Enough.” Here’s a question this AM. Is there something in your life today that you would finally say, “It’s Been Long Enough?” Most of our problems are not a result of a decree by God saying, “I’m going to teach that woman or that man a lesson.” No! Most of our present issues are a result of our own indecision to change. With God’s help today, why not join me and say, “It’s Been Long Enough!”
Thank You, Lord, for giving me the courage through the years to continually put my fears aside and move forward in faith. Amen!
