BELIEVE HIS WORD

OBSERVATION: THIS STUDY ADDRESSES ISRAEL’S FAILURE TO BELIEVE GOD’S WORD.

INTERPRETATION: PSALMS 106:24 (NKJV) THEN THEY DESPISED THE PLEASANT LAND; THEY DID NOT BELIEVE HIS WORD. PSALMS 106: 24 (THE BOOK) THE PEOPLE REFUSED TO ENTER THE PLEASANT LAND, FOR THEY WOULD NOT BELIEVE HIS PROMISE TO CARE FOR THEM.

THOUGHTS TO PONDER:

MANY ISRAELITES FAILED TO HEED GOD’S LEADERSHIP AND DIRECTIVES. HE PROMISED ISRAEL A PLEASANT, PROMISE LAND. RATHER THAN BELIEVE HIS PROMISE THEY REBELLED AGAINST GOD: THEIR POOR CHOICE WAS COSTLY. THEY CITED WALLED CITIES AND GIANTS IN THE LAND AND EXPRESSED A DESIRE TO RETURN TO EGYPT. GOD SPOKE TO MOSES AND AARON AND EXPRESSED HIS INTENT TO PUNISH THEIR UNBELIEF. ALL THE SONS OF ISRAEL TWENTY YEARS OLD OR OLDER WOULD DIE IN THE WILDERNESS, SAVE CALEB AND JOSHUA (NUMBERS CHAPTERS 13-14).

GOD IS A COVENANT KEEPER! HE WOULD HAVE KEPT HIS PROMISE FOR ISRAEL TO POSSESS THE PLEASANT PROMISE LAND: HE WOULD HAVE OVERCOME ANY OBSTACLES IN THEIR WAY WHETHER WALLED CITIES OR GIANTS!

DEUTERONOMY 6:3 (NKJV) THEREFORE HEAR, O ISRAEL, AND BE CAREFUL TO OBSERVE IT, THAT IT MAY BE WELL WITH YOU, AND THAT YOU MAY MULTIPLY GREATLY AS THE LORD GOD OF YOUR FATHERS HAS PROMISED YOU; A LAND FLOWING WITH MILK AND HONEY.

GOD GUARANTEED A LAND OF ABUNDANCE IF THEY OBEYED HIS LAWS. THEY WERE NOT TO LOOK BACK AT EGYPT, A SYMBOL OF BONDAGE.

DEUTERONOMY 7:16 (NKJV) ALSO, YOU SHALL DESTROY ALL THE PEOPLES WHOM THE LORD YOU GOD DELIVERS OVER TO YOU; YOUR EYE SHALL HAVE NO PITY ON THEM; NOR SHALL YOU SERVE THEIR GODS, FOR THAT WILL BE A SNARE TO YOU.

APPLICATION: BELIEVE HIS WORD AND LIVE!
