Many of us would feel disappointed that after all the trouble Moses had been through he still did not enter the promised land. But do you see yourself through the eyes of Moses, taking your relationship with God for granted and maybe taking short cuts as a result of your unbelief that things may not turn out right? Do you find yourself doing it your way rather than his way?
These short cuts and acts of disobedience sometimes have eternal repercussions just like we read in this passage. Even though God remained merciful to Moses such that he let him see the promised land from the hill, he was never to step into it.
God Bless You!
