When the Hebrew children arrived in the Promised Land, in the land flowing with milk and honey, even after they had defeated those who were living in the land, even then they had to make a decision. They had to decide which God they would serve. It is the same decision we have to make today! "Choose this day whom you will serve!"
It is one of the deepest, most terrifying questions we can ask. "Is God with us or not?" It is asked when things seem to be the darkest. But even deeper is the question, "What kind of God is with us?" Those were the questions facing the Hebrew children. Those are the questions facing us.
