Seeing By Fai

But go up to Pisgah Peak, and look over the land in every direction. Take a good look, but you may not cross the Jordan River. (Deuteronomy 3:27 NLT)

God often gives his servants vision that he does not let them complete. In the case of Moses, the Lord allowed him to see the Promised Land from a distance, as it were, by faith.

Things that we envision as happening in our lives don’t often come to pass. Unfulfilled vision may be by God’s design or as with Moses, by his failure. This eventuality does not preclude the fact that the vision will not come to reality. A word from God cannot be canceled by any human component and is not dependent on any one person to complete. Moses not being able to enter the Promised Land possibly was an object lesson for his people. Even Moses reaped the consequences when he disobeyed God and so would they. Also, God and not Moses was their security in taking their inheritance. Moses was not permitted to cross the Jordan River, but sometimes judgment is mixed with mercy. He was allowed to go up on the mountain and view the good land. He knew all the faithful promises of God and must have seen by faith all of those fulfilled.

Take courage by dear friends who have not accomplished all you set out to do for God. The Lord gave Moses a great blessing, a faithful servant like Joshua to carry on his work. Remember, that the people in whom you have invested your life, will collectively be able to do far more than you could have done by yourself. So go up to that mountain and by faith see God accomplish all that he has placed in your heart.
