When Moshe told these things to all the people of Isra’el, the people felt great remorse. They arose early the next morning, came up to the top of the mountain and said, “Here we are, and we did sin, but now we’ll go up to the place ADONAI promised.” Moshe answered, “Why are you opposing what ADONAI said? You won’t succeed! Don’t go up there, because ADONAI isn’t with you. If you do, your enemies will defeat you.
There is a cost for sin, we can be like the nation of Israel when they rebelled against ADONAI and not invaded the land as directed. We can with remorse but still sinful rebellious thoughts try to do what on the outside looks righteous, but because our spirit isn’t right is still defying God. Or we can accept that we missed an opportunity to serve and accept those consequences of that failure and move on in repentance before ADONAI. Lord let me accept all the correction You have given me and keep me from doing things that hinder Your kingdom. I ask this in Yeshua’s name, amen.
