June 13, 2024 – Day 17 – Why did it take you so long?

Have you ever had a guest over and the first thing you ask them as they enter your house was: “Why did it take you so long?”. Hopefully it was not a bump in the road but more a divine detour.

Moses set out from Egypt to the promised land. He moved swiftly and efficiently, yet he was stuck in the desert for 40 years and never made it. During those 40 years, many people came in and out of Moses’s camp with ease.

Why was Moses incapable of completing his mission?

Before we can answer that question, we must understand what our mission is. Is our mission a place or a quantity? Is our mission a person or a home? Our number one goal should be to connect to God and follow Him obediently with faith in His purposeful plan.

Looking at life through that lens, we can rephrase the question. Did Moses connect to God and follow His instructions obediently? Yes.

Then why did he end up stranded in the desert being punished?

God plans for us are not punitive. You are not being punished. He was not being punished. God guides your life according to His purpose. We trust in His purpose because we know God is good. We live connected to God in prayer and communicate daily.

The question transforms. Why do we feel like it is a punishment?

A change of perspectives changes everything. If we start with faith in a good and loving God, we can trust in the process. Giving all control over Him. Letting go of our own expectations. Living every day in His abundance. Filled with peace.
