Answer to Prayer
Thought for the Week: Just as Moses longed to enter the land, so too Yeshua awaits His return to Israel. He awaits the day of redemption when He can return at last to His land, His people and His disciples and thereby bring His great redemptive work to its conclusion.
Commentary: I also pleaded with the LORD at that time. (Deuteronomy 3:23)
We don't always get what we ask for.
Moses wanted to enter the Promised Land. More than anything, he wanted to finish the journey, cross the Jordan and stand on the soil of the holy land. He pleaded with the LORD, "Let me, I pray, cross over and see the fair land that is beyond the Jordan" (Deuteronomy 3:25).
