Consider The Latter End
Deuteronomy 32:27-30 (KJV) Were it not that I feared the wrath of the enemy, lest their adversaries should behave themselves strangely, and lest they should say, Our hand is high, and the LORD hath not done all this. For they are a nation void of counsel, neither is there any understanding in them. O that they were wise, that they understood this, that they would consider their latter end! How should one chase a thousand, and two put ten thousand to flight, except their Rock had sold them, and the LORD had shut them up?
Moses was contemplating about the wicked nation of Israel. If only these people would consider God and the end, He has already lovingly determined for His spiritual family. However, the nation of Israel collectively looks about them and peers at their circumstances, paying no mind to the state of their eternal future. This statement is true, then and today.
Sadly, there are many, Jew and Gentile alike, with this limited vision when looking about themselves, to others, the things they can accumulate, with numerous individuals missing the existence and work of God to this day. Just because the Israelites refused to see God as do many wicked hearts, does not change the fact that God is present and has always been present, and will forever remain.
God wants us to get our eyes off our circumstances and place them on Him and the perpetual future He desires for us to share in with Him. Do not choose to ignore Him and His ways, as did the ancient Israelites. Hear God and heed His direction and will for your life for He always knows what is best.
