Daily Devotional
October 27
And the LORD spake unto Moses, saying, Avenge the children of Israel of the Midianites: afterward shalt thou be gathered unto thy people.
Numbers 31:1–2
Moses had already been told he was about to die (Numbers 27:12–13). Here, however, the Lord gives him another assignment - to do battle with the Midianites, the people who followed the counsel of Balaam and caused the Israelites to fall.

Hope deferred makes the heart sick (Proverbs 13:12). Therefore, God is a good Father who doesn’t want us to be under the illusion that somehow, someday everything will be hunky dory. It doesn’t work that way. There are battles until the day we go to Heaven. “Moses,” God said, “you’re going to Heaven, but before you do, there’s a battle to fight.”

So too, we battle against our flesh, against the world’s system, and against our Enemy every day until the day we die. This is a key to spiritual maturity, for once we understand this, we’ll not be disappointed or depressed by hope deferred.
This Daily Devotional is an excerpt from the book "A Pillar By Day" by Pastor Jon. "A Pillar By Day" is a collection of 365 short devotions from the Old Testament books of Genesis through Deuteronomy.  If you would like your own copy of "A Pillar By Day" you may click here to go to the SearchLight Store
