As I read today, I thought of the Israelites tramping through the wilderness, and I found it very interesting that they didn't just march straight from Egypt to the Promised Land. I thought they'd be in a rush. But they stopped for quite awhile while Moses went up the mountain and met God, and then they built the tabernacle, which must have taken a bit of time. Worship and obedience were first on God's travel plan.
Thank You, Lord for Your guidance. Thank You for Your wisdom. I can trust Your long-term planning.
