Moses is considered by the Bible as the greatest prophet. In fact, the Bible says that there was never another prophet like him in Israel. Moses was so close to God that he could meet with God face to face.
You will recall in Numbers when Miriam and Aaron murmured against Moses’ leadership and his choice of wife that God informed them that Moses maintained a special relationship with Him because God even shared His secrets with Moses. As we see Moses’ leadership end and Joshua’s begin, it really makes you ask, “Where am I in my relationship with God?”
If someone had to ask God what He thought of you, what would He say? Moses clearly wasn’t perfect. Moses became angry and disobeyed God. He was far from perfect. Moses couldn’t even enter into the Promised Land because of His actions. Yet, God says this “failed” leader was the closest to Him. How can this be?
Well, Moses knew how to rely on God even when he made mistakes. When pressures mounted and Moses needed direction, He went to God. He relied on God completely. How about you? Are you independent of God? Or, are you fully dependent on God? Moses’ heart was always connected with God’s heart. The same can be true of you. Desire to have that close relationship with God. He’ll show you more than you could ever think.
