Neither believe nor obey, Deuteronomy 9.23

“And when he sent you from Kadesh-Barnea and told you, ‘Go up and possess the land I have given you,’ you rebelled against the Lord your God and would neither believe nor obey him.”

Deuteronomy 9.23

Moses cited several examples of Israel’s rebelliousness. This was but one of many. What God gives must often be fought for. His gifts require faith and obedience.

What is the nature of the rebellious spirit? Are there areas where I demonstrate such a spirit? How willing am I to fight for what God wants to give me?
