Numbers 26, 27
Focus Verse: Who shall go out before them and come in before them, who shall lead them out and bring them in, that the congregation of the Lord may not be as sheep that have no shepherd.” – Numbers 27:17
Moses led the people of Israel for a long time, and a part from a few mistakes, he did a faithful job in leading them; however, he could not lead forever. Neither could Joshua, the man who took Moses’ place, lead the people of Israel forever.
Unlike Moses and Joshua, God could always lead His people. He would always be their God.
He will always be your God too – ready to lead you; available to go out before you and come in before you, lead you out and bring you in. You will never be like a sheep without a shepherd. God is your Good Shepherd, your eternal Guide, and your permanent Friend. He cannot die. He will never leave you or forsake you.
