The Lord said to Aaron, “Go into the wilderness to meet Moses.” So he met Moses at the mountain of God and kissed him. 28 Then Moses told Aaron everything the Lord had sent him to say, and also about all the signs he had commanded him to perform.
Around this time last year I was reading a book by A.P.Boers, entitled ‘The way is made by walking.’ I found it to be an encouraging read, full of insights gained from his pilgrimage on ‘the Camino.’ One of the things he said was that time and again he met the people he believed he was meant to meet. He clearly didn’t view these encounters as coincidental. He saw them as divinely orchestrated. God orders the movements of His people. Sometimes, as with Aaron, we know we are being directed. But on other occasions, it happens without our obedient participation. We are just where we are meant to be, and God has His reasons.That said, let’s do all we can to be sensitive and alert so we can hear whenever God says, “Go…”
These verses describe the reunion of Moses and Aaron after forty years of separation.The Bible teaches that:
“Two are better than one, because they have a good return for their labour…” (Ecclesiastes 4:9: see also verses 10-12). We also remember that Jesus sent out His disciples in two’s (Mark 6:7), and God called Paul and Barnabas to take the gospel to the Gentiles (Acts 13:2). In spite of his faults, Aaron ministered alongside Moses for many years, and he became the founder of the priesthood in Israel.
