Today [while there is still opportunity] if you hear His voice, Do not harden your heart, as those [in the desert at Meribah].
- Hebrews 3:15
The oldest generation of Hebrew slaves did not enter the promised land.
Instead, they died in the desert at Meribah.
Suffering had made them hard towards God.
Suffering can cause damage to any of us - we weren’t built to live with constant sorrow!
The message in Hebrews 3 is about a choice in your “desert.”
Will you harden your heart?
If we stay offended or upset with God, bitterness or hardness can become a permanent condition.
TODAY: God sent Moses to Egypt and Jesus to the world. He wants to liberate you from suffering. Let it start with your heart!
Let us therefore make every effort to enter that rest [of God, to know and experience it for ourselves], so that no one will fall... Hebrews 4:11
