He is With Us
When the Going
Lesson Scripture: Numbers 11:1-6, 10-15
Lesson Aims: To recognize the importance of
remembering God's blessings during difficult times; to
always respond positively to life's valleys; and to
replace a complaining attitude with a faithful one.
..... Background; Attributed to Moses, this fouctfr book
of the Pentateuch deals with the Israelites' wandwinus in
their story a
I e a v i n g
E g y p t .
O f t e n
as the '?cen
oi tne wilderness experience, unce again, we will exam
ine "human nature." God frees them from bondage,
feeds them daily, gives them the Law, and guides them
toward The Promised Land. Is God not awesome? As
they pack up to leave the Sinai Desert, instead of prais
ing God, they complain. Instead of rejoicing over all that
He has done, they whine about what they don't have.
Don't be too harsh on them, because very often, the man
in the mirror does the same thing.
As Numbers opens, Moses was making preparation
for their departure from Sinai. He numbered the men by
clans to determine military duty (protection) as they
travel. This arrangement was in the shape of a square.
The Levites were not included because of their commis
sion as priests. Chapters three and four recorded their
responsibilities on the journey. Chapters five through
nine covered their purification, the vows of a Nazafhe,
and the first anniversary celebration of the Passover. The
cloud over the Tabernacle (portable tent) will continue
to lead them. Silver trumpets (two of them) sounded for
the whole community to assemble. If one trumpet
sounded, it was for the heads of the clans to assemble.
They marched forward with the Ark of the Covenant
ahead of them.
