I finished up a little later than I wanted too last night, so this post is for yesterday.
God was so specific about what He wanted them to do.
AND He was very plain about the consequences, good or bad: rewards for doing HIS commandments and punishment for not.
You would think that with everything out there so plainly, that Israel would have had no trouble. . .but we know that is not the case.
It's a lot like us today. We have everything we need to succeed in the Christian life right in front of us, in His Word.
And yet most of us do not live like it.
When I was reading through, I LOVED how the Lord kept reminding them of who He is when He said, “I am the LORD your God.” Given what we know about the wandering of the Children of Israel, we know WHY He kept saying it too!
Moving on to Numbers–Wahoo!
