“And the Lord said unto him, This is the land which I sware unto Abraham, unto Isaac, and unto Jacob, saying, I will give it unto thy seed: I have caused thee to see it with thine eyes, but thou shalt not go over thither” (Deuteronomy 34:4).Text — Deuteronomy 34:1-8
God’s description of Moses in Numbers 12:3 as “very meek, above all the men which were upon the face of the earth” as against his being denied entry into Canaan that he laboured so much for, serves as a great lesson for all believers. Moses abandoned the royalty of Egypt to suffer for his people. Yet God did not spare him for a miscarriage of divine instruction.
Today’s Bible text shows that God cannot change His word for any person no matter how much people revere Him or how much he/she has laboured in the kingdom. While Moses’ Canaan was physical, the believers’ Canaan today is heaven. Yet God will use the same criteria to determine their qualification to enter into His eternal city of gold. This calls for a daily review of one’s life in deep reflection and prayer before God. Pray for God’s grace to overcome whatever will hinder you from seeing and entering the heavenly Canaan.
