Sermon Text: Deut 34: 4 And the Lord said to him, “this is the land which I swore to Abraham, to Isaac, and to Jacob…I have let you see it, but you shall not go over there.”
Sermon Title: A Pisgah Pause
Point 1: Moses looked ahead vs 1 …And the Lord showed him the land…
Look at what God has on the horizon for you. Look at the 7000 promises in the word of God and see how God is going to keep them in 2018. Look out over the landscape as God showed Moses. God is showing you this morning. AS God purposefully showed Moses he is purposely showing you.
Point 2: Moses was still young a vibrant vs 7 Moses was 120 years old when he died. His eye was undimmed, and his vigor was unabated. (NIV) his eyes were not weak, nor his strength gone
The enemy wants you to look at all the hard times you had, but the text teaches us look at how good you look in spite of the hard times.
Point 3: God himself buried Moses and hid the grave vs. 6 and he buried him in the valley in the land of Moab opposite Beth-peor, but no one knows the place of his burial to this day.
. God is saying I will even hide his grave so you cannot worship his shrine. God is saying Pisgah means bury your past. Pisgah means let God bury your past. Pisgah Pause means only God can bury something’s. Only God can hide somethings.
Point 4: Moses handed his future over to Joshua vs. 9 for Moses had laid his hands on him[Joshua].
Out of every Pisgah Pause a Joshua should be born. Pisgah’s birth Joshua’s. Pisgah’s is the place where Joshua takes over and bring about a new you. Pisgah is the next iteration of you.

4. Start the 21 Day Fast to strengthen your resolve/purpose
