Project 4:4--Day Sixty-Eight

Day Sixty-Eight, Deuteronomy 33-34

Despite the song of the Israelites’ disobedience in the previous day’s reading, Moses last words to the Israelites are blessings upon each of the tribes.

Today’s reading ends with Moses viewing the promised land from the top of Mount Nebo. After this, he dies, and the Lord buries him. The Israelites mourn for him thirty days, then Joshua was filled with the Spirit and took over as the people prepared to enter the promised land.

We also see an amazing testament to the kind of man of God that Moses was. Scripture says of him, “Since then, no prophet has risen in Israel like Moses, whom the Lord knew face to face…”

Oh to know Him like that!
