There are many disappointed people dreading the coming years. When I stop and listen to their dire predictions, I tend to become disheartened myself. There are people preaching and prophesying out of their anger over current national and world events rather than proclaiming the Word of the Lord. There are those sounding off because of elections and appointments that didn’t proffer certain results. (Rather than standing firmly upon the never-failing Word of Almighty God, people will shift loyalties and not endure sound doctrine to get a quick fix like Esau did, like Esau who forfeited his birthright.) A murmuring Israel left Egypt and their murmuring manner turned a two-week walk into a forty year period of time that allowed the murmurers to die off before the coming generation could inherit the promised land. The murmurers died outside of facilitation. How sad that a generation had to wait for a preceding, unbelieving generation to die before they could receive promise. But, as always, there was a remnant and there will be a remnant, and the likes of Joshua and Caleb got to enjoy what the remainder of their generation chose not to walk in.
