In reading Deuteronomy 1 v 6-7 says “Yahweh our God spoke to us at Horeb, ⌊saying⌋, ‘You have stayed ⌊long enough⌋ at this mountain. Turn now and ⌊move on⌋, and go into the hill of the Amorites and to all of the neighboring regions in the Jordan ⌊Valley⌋ in the hill country and in the Negev and in the coastal area along the sea, into the land of the Canaanites and into the Lebanon, as far as the great river Euphrates.”
We have a terrible tendency to stay in one place or keep doing one activity longer than we should. Our meetings run long, we constantly work overtime, or we overstay a welcome. And then there’s the most significant problem of all: we ignore God’s command to leave a place, position or role. Where are you headed for and how are you making your way there. I find myself sometimes in that very same position where doing something is comfortable and not struggling or really seeing God in action. When Abram was called from Ur of the Chaldeans to the promised land it was a journey of experiencing God, what He could do and what He promised.
God did not intend Moses to stay in the wilderness but move on Deuteronomy 2:1. What is God calling you to move to, is it a further walk with the Lord, a change of direction in some way?
Remember that with the help of Jesus and the Holy Spirit we will be empowered to work out 2 Peter 1 v 5-8 For this very reason, make every effort to add to your faith goodness; and to goodness, knowledge; and to knowledge, self-control; and to self-control, perseverance; and to perseverance, godliness; and to godliness, brotherly kindness; and to brotherly kindness, love. For if you possess these qualities in increasing measure, they will keep you from being ineffective and unproductive in your knowledge of our Lord Jesus Christ.
