And the Lord said unto Moses, "Is the Lord's hand waxed short? Thou shalt see now whether my word shall come to pass unto thee or not. " Numbers 11:23
You know, sometimes I find myself so weak in faith. Sometimes I find myself complaining and murmuring... just as the Israelites did long ago. Oh, I may not want to admit it... I may not consider it as complaining or murmuring... because I may be blind to my own folly.
How often we've thought back to the "good times" and fall prey to discontentment of a present situation... and murmur against God's goodness. That's just what the Israelites did.... and that's we we do today.
" We remember the fish, which we did eat in Egypt freely;
the cucumbers, and the melons and the leeks,
and the onions and the garlic."
We fail to see God's grace and mercy offered TODAY... and consider it as nothing.. even when He offers manna from above!
" But now our soul is dried away;
there is nothing at all beside this manna,
before our eyes."
And how often we may find ourselves in the shoes of Moses and say, " This burden is too heavy to carry, I cannot do it alone."
Yes, Moses complained before the LORD... but so do we.
" I am not able to bear all this alone,
because it is too heavy."
However, I was extremely encouraged when I read once again the account of God showing His mercy and proving His promises to be true... even to a people that was full of murmuring and complaining.
And the Lord said unto Moses, "Is the Lord's hand waxed short?
Thou shalt see now
whether my word shall come to pass
or not. "
" For all the promises of God in Him are yea,
and in Him Amen,
and in Him Amen,
unto the glory of God by us."
2 Corinthians 1:20
May you find rest in the preciousness of God's love and care for you today.
