Message summary & scripture references

When God gives us an assignment, there is also a time frame associated with it. If you delay implementing the assignment, then you need to check with God to make sure He stills wants you to do it. Going back and doing what God has told you to do in the past (without checking in with Him) could cause unnecessary problems in your life. Listen to today’s podcast to learn more about this concept.

Deuteronomy 1:6-8 NLT

[6] “When we were at Mount Sinai, the LORD our God said to us, ‘You have stayed at this mountain long enough.
[7] It is time to break camp and move on. Go to the hill country of the Amorites and to all the neighboring regions-the Jordan Valley, the hill country, the western foothills, the Negev, and the coastal plain. Go to the land of the Canaanites and to Lebanon, and all the way to the great Euphrates River.
[8] Look, I am giving all this land to you! Go in and occupy it, for it is the land the LORD swore to give to your ancestors Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob, and to all their descendants.'”

Deuteronomy 1:22-25 NLT

[22] “But you all came to me and said, ‘First, let’s send out scouts to explore the land for us. They will advise us on the best route to take and which towns we should enter.’
[23] “This seemed like a good idea to me, so I chose twelve scouts, one from each of your tribes.
[24] They headed for the hill country and came to the valley of Eshcol and explored it.
[25] They picked some of its fruit and brought it back to us. And they reported, ‘The land the LORD our God has given us is indeed a good land.’

Numbers 14:34 NLT

[34] “‘Because your men explored the land for forty days, you must wander in the wilderness for forty years-a year for each day, suffering the consequences of your sins. Then you will discover what it is like to have me for an enemy.’

Numbers 14:39-40,45 NLT

[39] When Moses reported the LORD’s words to all the Israelites, the people were filled with grief.
[40] Then they got up early the next morning and went to the top of the range of hills. “Let’s go,” they said. “We realize that we have sinned, but now we are ready to enter the land the LORD has promised us.”
[45] Then the Amalekites and the Canaanites who lived in those hills came down and attacked them and chased them back as far as Hormah.

Numbers 14:41-44 NLT

[41] But Moses said, “Why are you now disobeying the LORD’s orders to return to the wilderness? It won’t work.
[42] Do not go up into the land now. You will only be crushed by your enemies because the LORD is not with you.
[43] When you face the Amalekites and Canaanites in battle, you will be slaughtered. The LORD will abandon you because you have abandoned the LORD.”
[44] But the people defiantly pushed ahead toward the hill country, even though neither Moses nor the Ark of the LORD’s Covenant left the camp.

1 John 1:9 KJV

[9] If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.

Joshua 1:1-2 NLT

[1] After the death of Moses the LORD’s servant, the LORD spoke to Joshua son of Nun, Moses’ assistant. He said,
[2] “Moses my servant is dead. Therefore, the time has come for you to lead these people, the Israelites, across the Jordan River into the land I am giving them.

James 1:5 KJV

[5] If any of you lack wisdom, let him ask of God, that giveth to all men liberally, and upbraideth not; and it shall be given him.
