It’s so precious that God buried Moses Himself – such an intimate thing, such a beautiful picture, especially considering their close relationship.  I like that no one but God knows where his bones are.

Moses died there in the land of Moab, Moses the servant of God, just as God said. God buried him in the valley in the land of Moab opposite Beth Peor. No one knows his burial site to this very day” (34:5-6 MSG)

It also strikes me how Moses never displaced his anger – even though he wouldn’t receive the land promised through his ancestors Abraham, Isaac and Jacob, Moses uses his last words to bless the people. (Would you have blamed him for saying something like, “Y’all were really awful, disobedient, caused me daily stress, and yet here you are: about to enter the promised land without me, thanks alot.”). Moses didn’t have to displace emotion or lay blame – God was his inheritance.

“No prophet has risen since in Israel like Moses, whom God knew face-to-face. Never since has there been anything like the signs and miracle-wonders that God sent him to do in Egypt, to Pharaoh, to all his servants, and to all his land—nothing to compare with that all-powerful hand of his and all the great and terrible things Moses did as every eye in Israel watched” (34:10-12 MSG)

Now it’s time for Joshua to take the lead. Let’s continue this journey!

    So many emotions running through me while reading and meditating on today’s word. 1. Moses brought his people to the Promised Land. This was something that required obedience and the longing to fulfill the prophecy. Can you imagine the breakdown and set up of the tabernacle along the way and every stop encountered a knew adventure, thousands of people assigned to do a different part of the puzzle. 2. Moses was given the opportunity to sit on the peak of the mountain and view the land promised that was given to his ancestors. The view must have been glorious to Moses. The long hard road paved ahead of time by GOD but just had to be taken. 3. Moses dies, this is a sad occasion and a Happy one as the torch was passed to Joshua and Moses was able to rest after his work was fulfilled. 4. GOD buried Moses, what a gift to be buried by the almighty. In my mind Moses is indeed in the Promised land sitting up top the heavens with Enoch and other great men before him. Wow……just wow.
