‘O Lord GOD, You have begun to show Your servant Your greatness and Your strong hand Deu 3:24
The Lord told Moses that He would not enter the land of Canaan, because He dishonored God at Meribah (Lord asked to speak to the rock but Moses struck the rock). In this portion (Deu 3:24,25) Moses makes a prayer to the Lord, so that He will be allowed to enter Canaan. What a beautiful way to start, a prayer. Lord we have started to see ‘your greatness and your strong hand’. Deu 3:24. Always remember and praise the Lord for His miracles. And Moses immediately came to the point “’Let me, I pray, cross over and see the fair land that is beyond the Jordan” Deu 3:25. Be specific, ask the Lord clearly, do not hide your desires and ask the Lord vague.
Moses was already informed that He would not enter Canaan. Still He prayed and expressed His desire to the Lord. Lord replied to Moses’ prayer immediately “But the LORD was angry with me on your account, and would not listen to me; and the LORD said to me, ‘Enough! Speak to Me no more of this matter” Deu 3:26. Lord gave an answer, but the answer was no. Remember our Lord asked Moses not to ask anymore. Our Lord, never wants to tell His children No. Truly “You are great, O Lord GOD; for there is none like You, and there is no God besides You 2 Sam 7:22
Lord, thank you so much because you are so mindful of what I pray. Teach me to pray describing Your greatness and specifically. Amen.
