As humans, we can only do so much in one lifetime. God worked miracles through Moses to bring about the most amazing stories of our faith, but did not ever make it to the Promised Land. God shows Moses what was promised, and promises to bring forth a new leader who will lead God's people. It is a story about where we have been, what we have done, and where we are going. Do we trust God to lead us? Would we be satisfied with being shown the future, but not have a say in it?
