DAY 233: JOURNEY THROUGH THE BIBLE IN A YEAR
Today we continue our journey through the book of Numbers.
Ask God for His understanding of Numbers 5-8. Read Numbers 5-8. Let’s journey!
Numbers, the fourth book of the Jewish Torah and of the Christians Old Testament, was written by Moses, who was recording events through which he lived. It picks up where Leviticus left off. The Israelites had been delivered from Egypt and had entered into a covenant with the Lord. They were concluding their one year stay at the base of Mt Sinai and were going to begin their journey to the Promised Land. The book of Numbers shows God’s faithfulness to the Israelites, while also delivering judgement on those who choose to walk away from Him.
Numbers 5-8: God gave directions to Moses on how to order the camp, infidelity, regarding the Nazarite vow, the priestly blessing, offerings at the dedication of the tabernacle, setting up lamps, and setting apart the Levites. (Numbers 5:1-8:26)
After reading chapters 5 through 8, consider the following: How does God show His faithfulness to the Israelites? Do the Israelites recognized God’s faithfulness? Think back on your own life and to a time when you were faithless to God, or grumbled against Him. Can you see how God remained faithful and continued to help and provide for you? Can you see God’s faithfulness in your life now?
