As most of you know, I'm on my one-year journey through the Bible and tonight as I read this particular chapter, it literally brought tears to my eyes. As I wiped them with my hand, they continued to flow and I had to use my shirt because there wasn't any tissue near by... My heart went out to Moses and it just goes to show that GOD wants us to obey his commands. Yes, there are times when it will be difficult; but remember that there will also be consequences!
Deuteronomy 3:23-27 - At that time I pleaded with the Lord: "O Sovereign Lord, you have begun to show to your servant your greatness and your strong hand. For what god is there in heaven or on earth who can do the deeds and mighty works you do? Let me go over and see the good land beyond the Jordan-that fine hill country and Lebanon." But because of you the Lord was angry with me and would not listen to me. "That is enough," the Lord said, "Do not speak to me anymore about this matter. Go up to the top of Pisgah and look west and north and south and east. Look at the land with your own eyes, since you are not going to cross this Jordan.
