Numbers 33:1-4 New International Version (NIV)
Stages in Israel’s Journey
33 Here are the stages in the journey of the Israelites when they came out of Egypt by divisions under the leadership of Moses and Aaron. 2 At the Lord’s command Moses recorded the stages in their journey. This is their journey by stages:
3 The Israelites set out from Rameses on the fifteenth day of the first month, the day after the Passover. They marched out defiantly in full view of all the Egyptians, 4 who were burying all their firstborn, whom the Lord had struck down among them; for the Lord had brought judgment on their gods.
Moses recorded the Israelites journeys as God had instructed him. This provided a record of their geographic progress and their spiritual progress. Have you made spiritual progress? Recording your thoughts about the lessons you have learned can be helpful in seeing your spiritual growth. This is like your spiritual pilgrimage, and it can help you to avoid repeating past mistakes.
