Sin not only separates us from God, it also destroys the good plans the Lord desires for us.
Sin not only separates us from God, it also destroys the good plans the Lord desires for us. This is exactly what happened to Israel when they responded to God’s speech-act with stiff-necked disbelief. Supposed to be, the first generation of Israelites who went out of Egypt should directly enjoy the blessings of the Land of milk and honey. But while on their journey to Canaan, their murmurings and disputing had kindled the Lord’s anger. Doubt hindered them from possessing the promised blessings. And so, in Moses’ preaching in Deuteronomy 1:19-33, he recapped the consequences of Israel’s disbelief. Moses told them and the next generation,
Then we set out from Horeb and went through all that great and terrifying wilderness that you saw, on the way to the hill country of the Amorites, as the LORD our God commanded us. And we came to Kadesh-barnea. And I said to you, “You have come to the hill country of the Amorites, which the LORD our God is giving us. See, the LORD your God has set the land before you. Go up, take possession, as the LORD, the God of your fathers, has told you. Do not fear or be dismayed.” (Deuteronomy 1:19-21)
