Numbers 9:15-23
 
Moses had already gone through a 40-year spiritual wilderness journey with God (dealing with his anger and dark side, with solitude shaping him) and was therefore equipped to guide Israel on the similar journey they were to take; God sent cloud by day and fire by night to guide Israel; God provides guides and companions for our spiritual journeys
 
“The best guide for any journey is one who has made the journey him-or or herself-perhaps multiple times-and thus knows something about the terrain, the climate, the beauties, dangers and challenges present at each point along the way. Part of what qualified Moses to lead the people of Israel out of their bondage was that he had already been on his own journey out of bondage and into the freedom to follow God fully.”
