“And ye murmured in your tents, and said, Because the Lord hated us, he hath brought us forth out of the land of Egypt, to deliver us into the hand of the Amorites, to destroy us…” (Deut. 1:27).
Obtaining the promises of God sometimes call for our willingness to encounter risk and danger while exercising our trust in God’s ability to bring us through the situation victoriously. The mere thought of having to endure something unpleasant may not be not very appealing at first. However, when weighing the sure and certain outcome with God on our side and fighting our battles on our behalf, the trouble seems to be well worth it in the end.
