Week 41 Monday

Little By Little

Today’s scripture selection: Numbers 33-36

Key verse: Numbers 33:1

“Here are the stages in the journey of the Israelites….”

Sometimes they made a lot of progress; sometimes they failed miserably.

Sometimes they remained true to their covenant with God; sometimes they went running after idols of their own making.

Sometimes they were the people of God; sometimes they became so self-absorbed they acted as if they were gods.

But through all their wandering – the entire journey – one thing remained the same.  They traveled, little by little, in stages.

Now, that might conjure up in your mind a silly cartoon: Moses and the people making their way across the desert in horse drawn stagecoaches.

But you know what I mean.

The people traveled in faith; imperfect as they were; sometimes making good progress; sometimes going down the wrong path; sometimes just sort of wandering aimlessly.

And, most importantly, God was with them each step of the way.

Isn’t it that way for us too?

On our life’s journey – it’s a combination of open highway, wrong way turns, and dead ends.  And a loving God helps us, if we will let Him, to ultimately find the right path.

What amazing grace; what incomparable love – that we are not just left to wander.  And that one day – He will show us the way home.

Prayer: Lord, I am so prone to wander; so often lost.  Lead me in the way you would have me go – little by little.  AMEN.
