Numbers 10:33 And they departed from the mount of the LORD three days’ journey: and the ark of the covenant of the LORD went before them in the three days’ journey, to search out a resting place for them.
Moses asked Jethro, his father in law, to go with them and be eyes for them. That was a great honor and blessing to say that to him. Moses offered him all the blessings that God would give His people.
The interesting thing is that God was going to go before them and guide them. As I read this I thought of how often I want a man to be my eyes when God is already there doing that.
Nothing wrong with having friends and mentors but in the end it is the Lord, Himself, through His Word that should guide us. Let’s move as He directs and wait as He directs.
