Heart to Heart
// Kenneth W. Hagin
With the Promised Land before them, the children of Israel didn't have time to be indecisive followers of God, believing God one minute and complaining the next. Their fathers before them did that and died in the wilderness. The first generation of Israelites were not victims of the circumstances that opposed them; they were victims of their own unbelief.
Years later under the leadership of Joshua, the same opportunity for possessing the Promised Land awaited a new generation. God commanded them to believe His Word and obey it. Obedience to God's Word would ensure their victory. As the second generation of Israelites trusted and obeyed God, they obtained their long-awaited inheritance.
