Please read Deuteronomy 1-2, Deuteronomy 3:1-20. Let’s visit!
“These are the sermons Moses preached to all Israel when they were east of the Jordan River in the Arabah Wilderness” (1:1 MSG)
Now Moses will re-cap their history, teaching the people again their story with God as the centerpiece. After 40 years, people have died and babies have been born. It’s crazy to think about, but there are some in this company who have never known anything but wilderness. They need to know, before they enter the promised land, how they were guided and protected by the Lord up to this point – and also be encouraged that His faithfulness will continue!
Be encouraged by the past, not bound by it.
