One Year Bible; Days 91-93 – Numbers 31:25-36:13; Luke 8:40-9:56; Psalm 40; Proverbs 8:22-31

Day 91

Numbers 31:25-32:42; Luke 8:40-9:9; Psalm 40:1-8

In Moses’ time, the people of God were to “arm themselves before the Lord for battle” (Numbers 32:20). In Jesus’ time, His disciples were given “power and authority to drive out all demons …” (Luke 9:1). In every generation, the Lord’s people are to sing “a new song … a hymn of praise to our God” so that “many will see and fear and put their trust in the Lord” (Psalm 40:3).

Day 92

Numbers 33:1-34:29; Luke 9:10-27; Proverbs 8:22-31

The sheer dimensions of what God was doing with His people, Israel, are most impressive. This was no small thing. This was a mighty work of God. The feeding of the 5,000 was a mighty miracle. It was impressive because of the sheer numbers involved in it. When we think of such mighty miracles, we know that their origin lies in God the Creator. He created the world out of nothing, His mighty work of creation is described in Proverbs 8:27-29.

Day 93

Numbers 35:1-36:13; Luke 9:28-56; Psalm 40:9-17

To come to the end of the book of Numbers is to sense the great significance of the man, Moses. To read the transfiguration of Jesus is to realize that the glory of “Moses and Elijah … in glorious splendour” is nothing compared with the glory of the Lord Jesus Christ. Of Christ alone, the Father says, “This is My Son, whom I have chosen; listen to Him” (Luke 9:35). We give thanks for men of faith who have played an important part in carrying forward God’s purpose of salvation. It is concerning the Lord alone that Scripture says, “may those who love Your salvation always say, ‘The Lord be exalted’” (Psalm 40:16).
