Get Moving-Deut. 2
Another reminder for me from Deut. 2 was how God was taking care of more people groups than just the Israelites. As the Israelites went through the land of the Edomites and Moabites, they were instructed to take care and pay for the things they used. God also made a point to tell them that God had given the Moabites and Edomites this land and Israel’s land was some place else. The passage also mentioned how God had helped these people groups defeat the giants in the land. I think it is easy to get into a mentality of thinking that the Gentiles were a non issue until Jesus came. This is not the case. God has had his eyes on all peoples wanting all to come to him from the beginning of time.
(A prayer adapted from Deut. 2:7) Dear God, Thank you for how you have blessed us in everything we have done. Thank you for how you have watched out for our every step even when we have gone through the wilderness. You have been with us and we have lacked nothing. May we be faithful to the tasks you have for us. Amen
