|Moses blesses Joshua before the High Priest.|
- Moses has died. He is the only prophet that the LORD knew face to face. [None equal to him] in all the signs and wonders which the Lord sent him to do in the land of Egypt--to Pharaoh and to all his servants and to all his land, And in all the mighty power and all the great and terrible deeds which Moses wrought in the sight of all Israel. Deuteronomy 34:10-12
- All of Israel morned for 30 days.
- Joshua was now the new leader of Israel and he had been fulled of the spirit of wisdom, for Moses had laid his hands upon him; so the Israelites listened to him.
- Psalm 78:12-66 , Psalm 105:16-45 , Psalm 106:1-33 , Psalm 135 sums up the history of Israel to this point.
1PRAISE THE Lord! (Hallelujah!) O give thanks to the Lord, for He is good; for His mercy and loving-kindness endure forever!(A)
2Who can put into words and tell the mighty deeds of the Lord? Or who can show forth all the praise [that is due Him]?
3Blessed (happy, fortunate, to be envied) are those who observe justice [treating others fairly] and who do right and are in right standing with God at all times.4[Earnestly] remember me, O Lord, when You favor Your people! O visit me also when You deliver them, and grant me Your salvation!-- (Psalm 106:1-4)
1PRAISE THE Lord! (Hallelujah!) Praise the name of the Lord; praise Him, O you servants of the Lord!
2You who stand in the house of the Lord, in the courts of the house of our God,
3Praise the Lord! For the Lord is good; sing praises to His name, for He is gracious and lovely!
5For I know that the Lord is great and that our Lord is above all gods.
6Whatever the Lord pleases, that has He done in the heavens and on earth, in the seas and all deeps--7Who causes the vapors to arise from the ends of the earth, Who makes lightnings for the rain, Who brings the wind out of His storehouses; (Psalm 135)
When God called Joshua to lead the nation He did not ask him to be another Moses. Leading Israel out was a task for a Moses, leading Israel in was a task for a Joshua. Joshua could not be Moses, nor Moses Joshua. You too, have a place in God's eternal scheme of things, but you can only fit into it as you are yourself. (Cover to Cover Day 76 page 346)
Romans 12:4-6 For as in one physical body we have many parts (organs, members) and all of these parts do not have the same function or use, So we, numerous as we are, are one body in Christ (the Messiah) and individually we are parts one of another [mutually dependent on one another]. Having gifts (faculties, talents, qualities) that differ according to the grace given us, let us use them: [He whose gift is] prophecy, [let him prophesy] according to the proportion of his faith;
So always remember be true to yourself and whom the Lord has made you to be.
