NUMBERS

OBSERVATION:

NUMBERS IS THE STORY OF ISRAEL’S JOURNEY FROM MOUNT SINAI TO THE EDGE OF CANAAN. THEIR UNWILLINGNESS TO FOLLOW GOD’S DIRECTIVES CAUSED THEM TO WONDER FORTY YEARS IN THE WILDERNESS. MOSES ALONG WITH ANYONE OVER AGE TWENTY DIED IN THE WILDERNESS.

INTERPRETATION:

READ NUMBERS 6: 22-27 (ARON’S BENEDICTION)

POINTS TO PONDER:

THE LORD WANTED TO BLESS HIS PEOPLE IF THEY OBEYED HIM. VERSE 24 STATES HE WANTED TO BLESS AND KEEP THEM (DIVINE PRESERVATION). VERSE 25 STATES HIS FACE WOULD SHINE UPON THEM AND BE GRACIOUS TO THEM (DIVINE ILLUMINATION). VERSE 26 SPEAKS TO HIS (COUNTENANCE-HIS APPROVAL) UPON YOU. IT ALSO SPEAKS TO (PEACE)

THAT EVERY BELIEVER NEEDS.

FORTY DAYS OF SPYING IN THE PROMISE LAND (CANAAN) WAS FORTY DAYS OF PROMISE AND GOOD REPORT. FORTY YEARS ISRAEL SPENT WONDERING IN THE WILDERNESS PRODUCED LITTLE.

GOD DELIGHTS TO GIVE BELIEVERS HIS BEST. HE WILL ALWAYS GIVE YOU HIS BEST IF YOU STOP COMPLAINING, REBELLING, BACKBITING AND DISOBEYING. HE KNOWS YOU NEED HIS BLESSING EVEN IF YOU DO NOT.

GOD GAVE HIS BEST (CHRIST) FOR YOUR BEST. OPEN YOUR HANDS WIDE, YOUR HEAVENLY FATHER WILL FILL THEM!

APPLICATION:

QUESTIONING GOD’S AUTHORITY AND DIRECTIVES BRINGS ADVERSE CONSEQUENCES: OBEDIENCE BRINGS BLESSINGS AND FELLOWSHIP WITH HIM!
