Isn’t it crazy how you can read a Bible passage several times and then one time it suddenly speaks to you? Not just whispers, but actually roars?
Lately I’ve been camping out along with Moses and the Israelites as they contemplated entering Canaan (Num 13-14).
God promised this land to them. Actually led them to it and gave them a green light. Moses sent a posse of twelve to spy out the land and report back. Only two of the twelve recommended that they move forward. Really?
God promised. God delivered. God was with them, but they refused to go? Mind boggling!
But, what a fabulous road map for us today. Here are six tips to consider when faced with difficult decisions:
Ask God to lead. I cannot imagine traveling this life journey without Him.
Accept consequences. Because of their lack of faith, God banished the Israelites to wander the wilderness for 40 years. Only Caleb and Joshua would actually enter the land that God intended all of them to enjoy.
