Podcast #132: “Every Giant Will Fall” by Rend Collective

Gaining Perspective in Deuteronomy 1

We all need a good anthem to sing at the top of our lungs as we open the sun roof and crank the radio! Oh, wait — maybe that’s just me. “Every Giant Will Fall” by Rend Collective definitely fits the “great anthem” bill, all the while leading us to consider God’s ways and our response when faced with giants.

Deuteronomy-1-29-square

Let’s consider how the Israelite people responded to the giants occupying their promised land.

On this episode I discuss:

This Week’s Challenge

Read Deuteronomy chapter 1 in its entirety. Also read all of Numbers 13. Consider the ways of God revealed in these two chapters, then take time to meditate on the details of the people’s response to God. Are you responding in rebellion to God’s leading because the possession of your promised land doesn’t look like you thought it would?
