What can we learn by following the prophet Moses?

It takes 11 days to travel from Egypt to Israel on foot. Unless you are travelling on an educational field trip. Then it can take 40 years and even then you may not arrive.

That is the story of the children of Israel’s exodus in the wilderness. Not that the curriculum was all that difficult. The Israelites only had to learn one concept, and pass one test. The concept from the Lord was simply, trust me, and trust my servant Moses.

To show them his awesome power, God parted the Red Sea, and let them cross without even getting their feet muddy. To feed them he sent manna six days a week. Perhaps to help them remember where their food was coming from, the Lord made the manna last for only one day. Every morning when they gathered their manna for breakfast they would be reminded that the Lord was providing their food. But the manna they gathered on the day before the sabbath lasted for two days. so they would be reminded to keep his commandment to rest on the sabbath day. Over and over Heavenly Father showed them they were his covenant people, and Moses was his prophet.

If you trust me, and keep my commandments I will care for you. It was a clear and simple agreement. But they never got it.

They paid lip service to the arrangement. They even paid leg service by wandering to and fro through the wilderness. But they never got the flesh pots of Egypt out of their minds and memories. They never totally committed to their covenant. As they old saying goes, they wanted to serve the Lord without offending the devil.

As a result, the Lord kept them wandering until that entire generation had passed away. Their children and grandchildren inherited the land they had been promised.

But before we shake our heads at their thick headedness, let us examine our own lives. Are we receiving all the protection, direction, strength, and blessings the Lord has prepared for us on our travel through this life toward the Promised Land?

Are we fully following the Lord’s anointed prophets? That’s the question echoing down through the ages from Moses, and the other prophets of old to our present prophet today. The Promised Land can be not only in the hereafter but the here if we follow the prophets.
