The Lord said to Moses, “Hurry and go back down, because your people, whom you led out of Egypt, have sinned and rejected me. 8 They have already left the way that I commanded them to follow. Exodus 32:7- 8
Large corporations set goals, which have to be reached in the course of the year. For this, they use methods and programs, which help them measure the achievement of those. These assessments allow them to take corrective measures in case of non-compliance with the objective. For, if they keep on like this, they will not achieve their stated goals. This would be a failure.
It is sad to see so many people who lose the promises from God because they do not stop and evaluate what they are doing. Because of that, they never see results and are disappointed at the way, while thinking that God did not help them.
The people of Israel had one goal: reaching Canaan soon. But those forty years they spent in the desert did not make them react and wonder what they were failing at, why they were so late.
Therefore, if our promises have drifted away, it is time to reflect and ask God what made us divert, what we have failed to do. We need Him to give us correction so we do not divert and definitely achieve the goal that He outlined for us.
