Misery Loves Grace
Because of you the Lord became angry with me also and said, “You shall not enter it, either. Deuteronomy 1:37
Moses was a great man of faith, BUT he struggled with sin as you and I do. The people were not to blame for Moses’s not being allowed to enter the Promised Land. He was banned because of a time he took credit for getting water to flow from a rock rather than giving it to God (Read Numbers 10.) I somehow feel better to know he failed as badly as I do. That is foolish on my part. I do better to rejoice that God’s grace was poured out on Moses as he pours it out on me. Misery does not love company—it hungers for grace. God pours it out freely in Jesus who lives. He is risen!
