Numbers 14:31 But your little ones, which ye said should be a prey, them will I bring in, and they shall know the land which ye have despised.
The people of Israel didn’t trust God when He wanted to take them into the promised land. They were afraid of what might happen to their children. They wanted their security in something that they could control and understand.
Their lack of faith in God caused them to suffer and die outside of the promised land. They missed out on so much that God had for them. He still took care of them. They got to enjoy His protection and provision every day. That was good but not near as good as what they could have enjoyed. Their children were also limited by their parents. They had to live 40 years waiting on all the great stuff God had promised but not enjoying it.
However, God did get the children of the rebellious into the land. They got to enjoy the promises. The sad thing is that they had to enjoy without their parents. They had to wait to enjoy. They missed out on so much as a consequence of their parent’s decisions.
God will take care of you and your children. The question is, why do you want to settle when you could have so much more?
