-The wrap up comes here in this final chapter of the book. Moses, the matchless prophet in Israel whom the LORD knew face to face and who performed the mighty acts of God among the people with signs and wonders and great terror, went up from the plains of Moab to the peak of Mount Nebo to view the entirety of the Promised Land from its peak. This was the beautiful land that the humble servant worked 120 years to get to. It was the place that the LORD had sworn to give His people. It was the inheritance of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob along with all their descendants. Moses’ eyes rested on this incredible place, but again, he was not allowed to enter. The servant of the LORD died there on Mount Nebo in the land of Moab and was buried in the valley opposite Beth-peor by the LORD in a place no man knows until this day. At 120 years old, the man of God still had all his vigor, and his eyes had not grown dim. All of Israel wept and mourned for him in their loss for 30 days there in the plains of Moab. When those days were completed, Joshua, the son of Nun, was filled with the Spirit of wisdom from the LORD. Moses had laid his hands on this noble leader, and the sons of Israel listened to him and did as the LORD had commanded Moses (Deuteronomy 34:1-12). The stage was now set for entrance into the Promised Land.
-*Application* Moses was a great man of God called to a specific purpose for a specific time. He answered the called, although he had his slip ups and faults along the way. We too are called from the time we are in our mother’s womb for a particular work that the LORD has for us (Psalm 22:9-10, Jeremiah 1:5, Luke 1:41, Galatians 1:15, Ephesians 4:1-8). Be faithful and humble in that call that God has placed in you, whatever it is. Use the gifts that He desires to stir up to build and expand His Kingdom on this earth (2 Timothy 1:6). There are promises and promised lands that He has for us all!
