🎧 My Favorite Bible Breakdown Episode>>>
My favorite episode this week: Numbers 33.
Looking Back to Look Forward
The nation of Israel is about to finally go into the Promised Land. Just before starting their push to the Jordan River, Moses takes a chapter and rehearses all the places they have been. This is a great lesson for us. We should always take time and remember all the amazing things God has brought us through. While I was trying to read all those crazy names, it was both hilarious and a little frustrating. I was tempted to skip a couple... but I didn't. I couldn't. Each of those names represents a place. Each of those places is a marker of God's faithfulness. What names would be markers of God's faithfulness in your life? Maybe a name would be middle school or med school. It may be surviving a difficult season or raising your child through the teenage years. No matter what that season was, God brought you through and is now taking you forward. Listen to it here.
The more we dig, the more we find. To get acquainted with the Book of Numbers, read a quick Introduction to The Book of Numbers.
