Living for Future Generations

by | Feb 1, 2023 | Vital Life Application Devotions

Deuteronomy 3:23,25 At that time I pleaded with the LORD… “Let me go over and see the good land beyond the Jordan—that fine hill country and Lebanon.” 

Moses prayed to enter the Promised Land, even as he knew he would not be able to. He pleaded with God, “Sovereign LORD, you have begun to show to your servant your greatness and your strong hand. For what god is there in heaven or on earth who can do the deeds and mighty works you do? Let me go over and see the good land beyond the Jordan—that fine hill country and Lebanon” (Deuteronomy 3:24-25). Why didn’t God say yes? Why not allow Moses to enter the land? Moses would live out the consequences when he had not followed God’s directions when he had provided water for the Israelites. He lived for the future generations who would inherit the land, even as he knew that he would never experience it. Imagine the kinship and comfort they must have felt about their own predicament as they were reminded that Moses was just like them, living for future generations. God loves and disciplines His own. Be thankful that you are part of God’s family.
