Numbers 11:1-13:33

The people complain to Moses that they do not like the food God is providing for them; they remember the better tasting food they used to get in Egypt.  God becomes angry and sends fires into the camp, Moses prays for the people and God removes the fires.  70 leaders are then commissioned by Moses.  God responds to the peoples complaint and sends a great flock of quail.

Miriam and Aaron become jealous of the standing of Moses before God and demand that God speaks to them as well.  God becomes furious the Miriam and curses her with leprosy.  Moses prays for Miriam and God heals her.  God then instructs the Israelites to explore the land of Canaan.  Moses sends 12 scouts into the land; one from each of the 12 tribes.  The scouts report that the land is filled with great produce, but it is also filled with giant adversaries.  One of the 12 scouts, Caleb, encourages Moses to enter the land, but the other scouts fear that they will be destroyed if they attack.

A Prayer

God of new beginnings,

Thank you for this new season of life. Thank you for not leaving us in the cold and the dark forever. Thank you for the turning of the seasons and the wondrous beauty I take for granted because I expect it. Thank you for working in normal ordinary ways to bring about normal ordinary events; thank you for not waiting until we notice we need you to be here with us.

Keep my eyes open to the amazing work you are doing in my life and the life of those around me. Keep my ears open to listen to your leading. Keep my hands ready to heal and comfort and forgive. Keep my feet moving toward you day after day. Make my mouth an instrument for you to use and play a beautiful song.

Light of the world
You stepped down into darkness.
Opened my eyes, let me see.
Beauty that made this heart adore You
Hope of a life spent with You

Here I am to worship,
Here I am to bow down,
Here I am to say that You’re my God
You’re altogether lovely
Altogether worthy,
Altogether wonderful to me

King of all days
oh, so highly exalted
Glorious in heaven above
Humbly You came
To the earth You created
All for love’s sake became poor

Here I am to worship,
Here I am to bow down,
Here I am to say that You’re my God
You’re altogether lovely
Altogether worthy,
Altogether wonderful to me

Light of the world
You stepped down into darkness.
Opened my eyes, let me see.

Thank you God, Amen.
