“Ye have compassed this mountain long enough: turn you northward (Deut. 2:3).”
So… we really don’t have to go around the same mountain over and over? Glad to know it. I, for one, am certainly ready to move forward… preferably without wasting any more time. I think I’ll listen to the voice of God and move when He says move, wait when He says wait, rest at His command and back away when He says ‘no.’
If we could simply learn the lesson the first time around, there would be no need to continue going around the same mountain. However, if we choose to live in rebellion, then we’ll be “ever learning, and never able to come to the knowledge of the truth (II Tim. 3:7).” If we choose to be stiff-necked people, bent on doing it our own way, then our lessons will take longer and our results will not be what we desire.
How many times have we witnessed others going around the same mountain in life. It seems obvious to us that this ineffective repetitive movement should be wearing them out… because it’s certainly wearing on us. If we walk in the Spirit, we’ll be in sync with God’s timing, God purpose and will for our lives. If we allow Him to be LORD, we’ll be more inclined to obey His voice and allow Him to rule and reign in us. After all, has He ever let us down? Have we been scarred because of His choices for us? Is there any reason not to trust His judgment? Three times, no. His thoughts and plans for us are good; they are plans to prosper us and not to harm us, to give us a future and a hope (Jer. 29:11). He’s in control… just turn and go northward at His command.
