Our worship was informed by the story of Israel’s mediator – Moses as the people completed their wilderness journey. Moses and Israel had a confused relationship – Moses was loved and hated by Israel, Moses pushed back against God, and yet was identified as the best prophet who is without compare. Yet Moses’ story doesn’t stop there – Moses helps serve as the connection of Israel’s future with God’s providence in the past. By extension, Moses is our connection between our future and God’s providence in our past. How are you reminded of God’s providence, even in the midst of trouble and a long journey?
