As you know Groundhog Day is one of my favorite movies of all time. It is a comedy about a journey of many errors}:
children of Israel embarked on a journey from Egypt to Canaan just 12
days away, 13 tops! God led them with a pillar of cloud by day and a
pillar of fire by night and they received additional word from God
through Moses. They arrived in Canaan 40 years later.
During the journey they
faced all matter of threats and attacks from the peoples through whose
land they traveled. Through all of their misdirections they continued on
to Canaan apparently never aware of their detour or delay. It wasn’t
that the directions were wrong or that God moved Canaan — they just had
to learn to live in a manner pleasing to God — something to remember as
we travel and sojourn.
I'm sure you've seen it by now. If not, check out
the 15th Anniversary Edition from Amazon.
