Following the rock

marmsky December 2017 (13)devotional post # 2229

Numbers 1:20-21

Num 1:20  The people of Reuben, Israel’s firstborn, referencing their historical lineage, by their clans, by their fathers’ houses, according to the number of names, head by head, every male from twenty years old and upward, all who were able to go to war:
Num 1:21  those mustered from the tribe of Reuben were 46,500.

Following the rock

Following General Elitsur into battle would be 46,500 Reubenites. They were following a leader whose name indicated that God is his rock. There would be change, transition, disappointment and pain. But there was also a promise of stability.

GOD, give us the courage to follow you, even when doing so leads us to stretch our sense of well being, and trust you as we never have before.
