Numbers 34 Bible Study
1. Trust in God’s provision
God had been taking care of the Israelites’ needs ever since he led them out of Egypt. The Israelites never lack food, water and clothes when living in the desert for 40 years. Now, they finally are going into Canaan to take possession of the land. In Numbers 34, God instructed Moses about the souther, western, northern and eastern boundary of the Israelites in Canaan. We should surrender all our problems to God and let the Holy Spirit guide us. If you trust and rely on God, God will surely deliver out from all your problems (Proverbs 3:5; Matthew 6:26).
