Deuteronomy 34:1-5

“Then Moses went up from the plains of Moab to Mount Nebo, to the top of Pisgah, which is opposite Jericho. And the LORD showed him all the land, Gilead as far as Dan, all Naphtali, the land of Ephraim and Manasseh, all the land of Judah as far as the western sea, the Negeb, and the Plain, that is, the Valley of Jericho the city of palm trees, as far as Zoar. And the LORD said to him, “This is the land of which I swore to Abraham, to Isaac, and to Jacob, ‘I will give it to your offspring.’ I have let you see it with your eyes, but you shall not go over there.” So Moses the servant of the LORD died there in the land of Moab, according to the word of the LORD” – Oftentimes, in the will of God it is not for us to cross over, but rather for us to be strong in the Lord and do all that we can, so that those following us can make it over. Consider a few of the last words of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.: “I may not get there with you. But I want you to know tonight, that we, as a people, will get to the Promised Land.”
