Deuteronomy 2:16-18 So it came to pass, when all the men of war were consumed and dead from among the people, That the LORD spake unto me, saying, Thou art to pass over through Ar, the coast of Moab, this day:
What a sad thought! When all the men of war that had resisted God’s will died the nation could move on to what God had for them. Each day for 40 years now they had watched them die. Each day they buried the dead, continued traveling and missing out on God’s best for them.
I can only imagine what it must have been like to be one of the young people watching the old rebellious ones die and waiting on the promise.
I can only imagine what it must have been like for one of the old men who knew he had resisted God, hindered His work, blocked God’s blessings on his own children as he waited to die.
Wandering in circles waiting to die. Life had lost its meaning. He knew he was a hindrance to his own family.
Don’t waste your life! Don’t play with important things. Let God use you today. Lay it before your children that they might enjoy more of God’s blessings not less.
Don’t be the last man in the way of blessings!
