God goes before us and carries us, but too often we want God to put us down. We want to go in our own power; our own way.
Dt 1:30 The Lord your God who goes before you will himself fight for you, just as he did for you in Egypt before your eyes, Dt 1:31 and in the wilderness, where you have seen how the Lord your God carried you, as a man carries his son, all the way that you went until you came to this place.’ Dt 1:32 Yet in spite of this word you did not believe the Lord your God…
We lose faith when we do not get what we want and come to despise the good.
Ps 106:24 Then they despised the pleasant land, having no faith in his promise.
Once we depart on our own and in our own will, we seek all that is not good for us. With God, we already had the good. Once we seek the evil of our own will, we become like the evil.
Ho 9:10b I saw your fathers. But they came to Baal-peor and consecrated themselves to the thing of shame, and became detestable like the thing they loved.
