Numbers summarizes the forty years Israel spent in the wilderness between Mount Sinai and the Jordan River. It is a historical book as it deliberately records what happened on the journey after leaving Egypt but before entering the Promised Land of Canaan. The theme of the book is the gradual fulfillment of God’s promises to Abraham that his descendants would be the people of God and eventually occupy the Promised Land. It is a gripping narrative of the majority of years spent wandering in the desert. Also, we will see God’s dual purpose for hardship: sometimes punishing for disobedience and sometimes preparing for a more successful journey. This 38-page devotion takes you through Numbers a chapter a day for 50 days.
Comment. It may not sound fair, but it is the Word of God.
Prayer. Father, we thank You all of Your Word is inspired, even hard, difficult chapters like Numbers 7. Thank You that if we listen to Your voice as Moses heard Your voice, we, too, can gain application from every passage of Your Word. Thank You for speaking to me that day. I pray You speak to others this day. Amen.
