It's finally about to happen:  The children of Israel are soon to move into the Promised Land and claim what God was giving them.  But two of the 12 tribes, Reuben and Gad, talked Moses into giving them a large area on this side of the Promised Land. They must promise to fight in order to claim the lands God intended, but they are given permission.

Now, God had already chosen the perfect land for the entire nation, but these people thought they had a better idea.

God is patient with us and will indulge or unwillingness to go all the way with Him, but there is no doubt that we miss out anytime we think we know better than God Almighty.
