12 And the Lord said unto Moses, Get thee up into this mount Abarim, and see the land which I have given unto the children of Israel.
13 And when thou hast seen it, thou also shalt be gathered unto thy people, as Aaron thy brother was gathered.
14 For ye rebelled against my commandment in the desert of Zin, in the strife of the congregation, to sanctify me at the water before their eyes: that is the water of Meribah in Kadesh in the wilderness of Zin.
God gave Moses instruction about how his life would end and what would be next for the children of Israel. He told Moses that he would see the promised land from Mount Abarim, but that he would not enter. Why? Moses had rebelled against God in not sanctify God in the eyes of the people at the rock in the desert of Zin. The wages of his sin was death.
- Death is the inevitable consequence of sin for everyone in this fallen world, other than those who will be raptured. Moses faced death and did not enter the promised land.
- God demands more out of those who are leaders. The way we lead, especially in regards to how we point others to God, is of utmost importance to the Lord.
Since it is so critical how I lead to the Lord, I must…
- Pray more intensely today
- Seek wise counsel
- Seek God’s direction
- Rest in the fact that God has a plan and will help me to accomplish what He wants me to do.
