Then the LORD said to Moses: “How long will these people reject Me? And how long will they not believe Me, with all the signs which I have performed among them? (Numbers 14:11 NKJV)
It is so easy to judge the Israelites. Reading everything they do makes their wrongs obvious to us but, you know, we do the exact same thing. God may bring us somewhere new and we complain that we no longer have things of the past. Bad things of the past. Would God would bring us discomfort or sorrow for nothing? He promised the Israelites a land flowing with milk and honey and He did not promise for nothing. Imagine what God has planned for us, and for His glory! Don’t turn your walk through the wilderness into a 40-year wandering. God has us all in the palm of His mighty hand.
Even when it hurts
Even when it’s hard
Even when it all just falls apart
I will run to You
‘Cause I know that You are
Lover of my soul
Healer of my scars
You steady my heart
God’s taking us there. We just have to keep believing. Through everything.
