Do not be like the Israelites who tried to take their inheritance prematurely. After Moses warned them, “Do not go up, because the Lord is not with you. You will be defeated by your enemies,” they disobeyed (Numbers 14:42). The text tells us, “Nevertheless, in their presumption they went toward the high hill country, though neither Moses nor the ark of the Lord’s covenant moved from the camp. Then the Amalekites and Canaanites who lived in that hill country came down and attacked them and beat them down all the way to Hormah” (Numbers 14:43-45). Hormah means destruction.
Again, if you are contemplating making a decision and know that you do not have the Lord’s blessing, stop! Do not presume upon the Lord. He wants you to wait on him and trust him to give you the inheritance he has for you at the proper time, lest you be beaten down like the Israelites.
If he hasn’t answered you yet, know that he wants to you learn about him and his ways in the wildereness. Thereafter, you will be able to enjoy the land that flows with milk and honey (Numbers 13:27).
