Thinking Out Loud: Yet . . .

Deuteronomy 1:19-33

He will fight for them (Deut. 1:30) as he did in the past (Exodus 14:14, 25).  He carried them all the way (Deut. 1:31) with fatherly care.  He was their fire by night (Deut. 1:33) and their cloud by day (Duet. 1:33).  "Yet" (Deut. 1:32) they did not believe the Lord their God.  

They believed that the Lord hated them (Deut. 1:27). Their testimony is often our testimony.  Believing that God does not exist isn't hard, while believing that God isn't good is easy. How much more do we need to see to believe?  We live under a downspout of grace, and yet we continue to doubt His goodness.  This seems to be a plausible explanation for why we don't bear more fruit.

What truth have you yet to believe the Lord your God?
