Deuteronomy 2:14 And the space in which we came from Kadesh-barnea, until we were come over the brook Zered, was thirty and eight years; until all the generation of the men of war were wasted out from among the host, as the LORD sware unto them.
Imagine the Bible terms that you find in this verse. They were “men of war” and they were “wasted out” from among the host. I ask myself how many of the men of God, men of war, in the church of Jesus Christ are wasted out. This story is the story of being wasted because of sin but isn’t that the same story today.
Do not men decide to not believe God today. Do they not decide not to step forward in faith to fulfill with their lives what He has for them. So their lives are wasted out.
How many churches and families wander around in a spiritual wilderness because they have yet to hear the Great Commission to go into all the world. Matthew 28:18-20.
For some reason they believe church is about improving their quality of life and that of their children. They desire to raise a good family. They desire to have God’s blessing on their lives but little realize that although he will give you shoes, clothes, and food while you wander in the wilderness waiting to die you will never know the rich blessings of victory that God made you to enjoy.
Rise up on Church of God . Decide now to live the life God calls you to and commands you to have. Do not be satisfied with wandering, wasting, waiting, weeping , and passing that same life on to your children.
