The wanderings of the Israelites is a reminder of what not to do when you are in the wilderness. Each of My children must go through their own wilderness experience. Do not look at another and compare, because they may or may not be in the wilderness yet. Every one of my children must be tested so that the wilderness mentality can be removed.
You pray that My will be done as long as the cost is not too high. You need to realize that I am God and I will do as I please, how I please, and when I please. It is for you to remain steadfast in My love and My goodness, whether it appears that way to you or not. You must not waver in unbelief if you want to inherit the promises that I have for you. This can only be accomplished by My grace.
Declare grace to the mountains of doubt, fear, and unbelief! Walk in the fear of the Lord and be strong like Joshua and Caleb. Then you will inherit the promises! For this is not a time to shrink back, but to stand and see the salvation of the Lord!
Numbers 14:6-9 Living Bible (TLB)
6 Two of the spies, Joshua (the son of Nun), and Caleb (the son of Jephunneh), ripped their clothing 7 and said to all the people, “It is a wonderful country ahead, 8 and the Lord loves us. He will bring us safely into the land and give it to us. It is very fertile, a land ‘flowing with milk and honey’! 9 Oh, do not rebel against the Lord, and do not fear the people of the land. For they are but bread for us to eat! The Lord is with us and he has removed his protection from them! Don’t be afraid of them!”
Deuteronomy 8:2-3 Living Bible (TLB)
2 Do you remember how the Lord led you through the wilderness for all those forty years, humbling you and testing you to find out how you would respond, and whether or not you would really obey him? 3 Yes, he humbled you by letting you go hungry and then feeding you with manna, a food previously unknown to both you and your ancestors. He did it to help you realize that food isn’t everything, and that real life comes by obeying every command of God.
