Buried With Honor By God

Buried With Honor By God by Kirk Hunt

So Moses the servant of the Lord died there in the land of Moab, according to the word of the Lord. And He buried him in a valley in the land of Moab, opposite Beth Peor; but no one knows his grave to this day.

Deuteronomy 34:5-6 NKJV

At 120 years old, Moses climbed Mount Nebo, alone. At the top of the mountain, he died with no one (human) to bury him. God Himself buried His servant, honoring a flawed man.

Moses always had an anger management problem. Anger led him to murder an Egyptian, break the stone tablets of the Ten Commandments, and strike the rock. Even as a centenarian, the leadership of Israel hesitated to infuriate him.

For all his flaws, errors, and shortcomings, God referred to Moses as “His servant.” Scripture records that God spoke to him face-to-face, as a man speaks to his friend. Moses had a close and personal relationship with Father-God.

Never stop trying to overcome and minimize your shortcomings and flaws. Always consider how infinite God is, and how finite you are. Then go be the best servant of God you can.

God honored His servant by personally conducting his funeral. Never mind His gift to Moses of extraordinary age, health, and vigor. Like Moses, you too can be a friend of God.

Think: God loves and honors flawed men and women who serve Him in sincerity.

Pray: “Father-God, help me to be Your servant.
