Numbers 33

Numbers 33:1-56


OVERVIEW: Moses provides a detailed account of Israel’s journey from Egypt to the border of the Promised Land. Not only does this chronicle their past, but the geographic locations provide support for the Bible’s validity, proving it’s a document that we can trust.

BIG IDEA“The Bible is a supernatural, spiritual, sovereign, surviving, sustaining, super-charged book about [our] Savior.” — Adrian Rogers

KEY VERSENumbers 33:55 (God to Moses)
But if you fail to drive out the people who live in the land, those who remain will be like splinters in your eyes and thorns in your sides. They will harass you in the land where you live.

You can trust what you read in the Bible about me and my instructions for you. It is my word to you. The Bible is not outdated or irrelevant. It includes instructions, promises, and warnings, and it ultimately expresses my heart and love for you. I am a God who loves you and pursues you. I’m not a fairy tale or a warm feeling.  I am the living God, creator, and sustainer of all. The Bible is my voice—listen and obey. I can and will speak to you in other ways, but the Bible is the plumb line for everything you hear. Nothing I tell you is contradictory in the Bible.

Because you can trust what’s inside, follow my directions in it. Don’t pick and choose what you like and dismiss what doesn’t feel right. It’s a myriad of promises and instructions, but it’s all one story. It’s a love story of my care for and pursuit of my creation. Follow me as I lead you, and trust me on your journey.

Read (or listen to) your Bible this week with confidence that it is reliable and trustworthy.
