Numbers 33:2 At the LORD’s command Moses recorded the stages in their journey. This is their journey by stages…
“LIFE IS A JOURNEY”
- Moses Climbs Mt Nebo and sees the “Promise Land”.
Deuteronomy 34:1-7 Then Moses climbed Mount Nebo… There the LORD showed him the whole land… 4 Then the LORD said to him, “This is the land I promised on oath to Abraham, Isaac and Jacob… I have let you see it with your eyes, but you will not cross over into it.” 5 And Moses the servant of the LORD died there in Moab… 7 Moses was a hundred and twenty years old when he died, yet his eyes were not weak nor his strength gone…
- God calls Joshua to continue the Journey into Canaan.
Joshua 1:1-2,5 1 After the death of Moses the servant of the LORD, the LORD said to Joshua son of Nun, Moses’ aide: 2 “Moses my servant is dead. Now then, you and all these people, get ready to cross the Jordan River into the land I am about to give to them–to the Israelites… 5 No one will be able to stand up against you all the days of your life. As I was with Moses, so I will be with you; I will never leave you nor forsake you.
Lead the people… Defeat the enemies… Claim the inheritance!
- Everyone on the “Journey of Life” will face…
Joshua 1:6 “Be strong and courageous, because you will lead these people to inherit the land I swore to their forefathers to give them… Joshua 1:9 Have I not commanded you? Be strong and courageous. Do not be terrified; do not be discouraged, for the LORD your God will be with you wherever you go.”
