The promise of Canaan begins with accepting God’s purpose for our lives. When we learn our purpose we must communicate with God, take action and persevere in confidence. Our discipline and commitment must be directed towards acting on God’s purpose with confidence in God’s ability.
Wilderness requires a commitment to God. When God is an option and when Canaan is one of the many things we have to choose from then we will find ourselves in idolatry as the Israelites did in Exodus 32 when they worshiped a golden calf. Let us learn to practice an ever-increasing commitment to God.
God’s love guides. Purpose requires communication with God, action and perseverance. We win by acting on God’s plan in disciplined commitment.
