This chapter rivals Exodus 32 for the number, complexity and significance of the events that happen. Which means I've missed out some important things:

- Miriam dying
- The Israelites grumbling again
- The LORD telling Moses that he wouldn't enter the land

As always, make sure you read the full chapter!

WE ARE HARD- headed at times also.we really complain daily.Learning this lesson has revealed to me by the holy spirit that A BELEIVER NEED TO BE VERY THANKFUL IN OUR DAILY WALK WITH CHRIST NO MATTER WHAT THE CIRCUMSTANCES ARE, SO THAT WE WILL NOT BE PUNISHED, AND MISS OUT ON THE PROMISED LAND.


I am remembering back in Exodus chapters 3 & 4 how Moses was afraid to speak... Now look at him in Numbers 20 V 10
Moses said to them, ‘Listen, you rebels, must we bring you water out of this rock?’


It is about water from a rock and moses didn't follow gods introctions and didn't give god the cridet (don't know how to spell it) and god said you can now see the promise land but not enter it. Someone else soon will have to lead.
