Deuteronomy 1:2 declares that it only takes 11 days from Horeb to Kadesh Barnea. Yet it took the Israelites 40 years to get there. Even more the generation that entered the desert never made it out alive saved Caleb and Joshua.
The Bible explains that it was their attitude that kept them from entering into the land of milk and honey. As we know the Old testament serves as a testimony for us today. We have to learn from the people of old what not to do to miss the blessings of God.
This is the beginning of 2014 and we need to consider and take stock of our lives. I believe that we need to be Kingdom minded and be mindful of God and His will for our lives. Read these verses:
“Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who has blessed us with all spiritual blessings in heavenly places in Christ.” (Ephesians 1:30
“According to His divine power has given all things that pertain to life and godliness through the knowledge of Him that has called us to glory and virtue. Whereby are given unto us exceedingly great and precious promises; that by these you might be partakers of the divine nature, having escaped the corruption that is in the world through lust.” (2 Peter 1:3,4)
Our attitude toward trials and temptations we face each day will determine the outcome. We can be desert minded and see failure and death; or we can be kingdom minded and come out into the blessings God has in store for us.
The question today is: WHAT IS MY REACTION WHERE THINGS DON’T GO ACCORDING TO PLAN?
