What are you afraid of?
In Deuteronomy 1:19-46 we are reminded of Israel's history. After being led across a vast desert, the nation came to the promise land. Even after seeing God's great works, they would not enter! They saw the people of the land. They saw the fortified cities. They were afraid because they did not trust the power of God! They were afraid because they did not trust the goodness of God. Their lack of faith led to rebellion.
What do you fear? What does this fear say about your faith in God's goodness and power? How does lack of faith in God's greatness and goodness lead to disobedience in your own life?
Learn from Israel! Take time this week to reflect on God's works in your life - how he has provided for and protected you beginning with salvation. Study the Word of God and consider how fear may be preventing you from obeying him. Then repent of a lack of faith, trust the Lord, and take a step of obedience! Where is the Lord calling you to trust him this week?
