Lord, Help Me to “Get Up and Resume the Journey” –Deuteronomy 10:11



Today’s Scripture Reading: Deuteronomy 10:1-12:32

Heavenly Father, sometimes I want to quit.


  • My goals seem impossible
  • I doubt my calling
  • I’m just plain tired
  • I don’t feel capable
  • I don’t feel worthy


The words Moses spoke to the Israelites keep ringing in my ears:

Then the Lord said to me, ‘Get up and resume the journey, and lead the people to the land I swore to give to their ancestors, so they may take possession of it.’ —Deuteronomy 10:11

When you spoke those words to Moses, he was at the height of his frustrations with the Israelites.  Aaron had just led them in the design and worship of the golden calf.  Lord, help me to remember that my frustrations, lack of understanding, doubts or fatigue does not change Your plans for my life.

Jesus, give me a renewed enthusiasm to resume the journey. Lord, lead me so I can lead others.  Help me to take possession of the Promised Land of goals and dreams You have for my life.

In Jesus’ Name.  Amen and Amen!
