Struggling to Possess

Deuteronomy 2:1-23, especially vs. 16-18 SAAS: “…when all the men of war died from the midst of the people, then the Lord spoke to me, saying, ‘Today you shall pass by the borders of Moab at Seir….’” … Orthodox Christians ought to consider that the heart of the life in Christ is truly nomadic, for God is preparing each of us for the great inner conquest through the daily efforts we make.  Others around us in our neighborhoods, at our jobs, or in the larger community may be settled, as were the Edomites and the Moabites.  But by struggle in the wilderness,  Israel learned to rely solely upon God, not the comforts of fixed life.  So we must learn struggle.
