Moses’ time of leadership had come to an end. He would not be able to go to the promised land with the people he had led for forty years.
The people were scared. They were up against intimidating enemies and their leader was leaving them. How would they possibly make it to the promised land?
Moses reminded the people that it was not he, but God who would bring them victory. God was the one who led them all along. He would continue to lead them. He would protect them and would never leave them.
This same God is with you today. People will fail you. They may leave you at your weakest moment, but you need not fear. God is with you. He will be with you and will never forsake you.
