As we conclude the time of Sukkot, we enter into the days of Simchat Torah, which means the joy of Torah. This Word shows us the importance of this time. When the Israelites were ready to take the promised land after 40 years of wandering in the wilderness because of their unbelief, Moses made clear to them the importance of remembering the Word of God and teaching it to generations to come. As with the Israelites, we must ask ourselves, “Are we going to make the same mistakes of the past? Or have we learned our lesson? Can we keep that lesson alive for us and for our children?” The answer is in rehearsing the Word, in binding it to our hearts.
Let us find the foundations of our faith, what God has called us to be, and what He has spoken to us. Faith comes by hearing the Word, so we do this by rehearsing His Word and remembering that He is mighty and powerful enough to provide us with what He has promised.
