Isn’t it funny how dense people can be sometimes? You explain something over and over and they still don’t get it. What’s even more funny—i can be just as dense when it comes to the things the Lord is showing about Himself. How about you?
After they left Egypt, the children of Israel had seen some of the most powerful signs of the Bible. They were exactly where they were supposed to be, doing exactly what the Lord wanted them to do. Every time some new challenge arose, they forgot they were exactly in the circumstance that God set up so that they could trust Him more. Instead of trusting all that the Lord had done, they doubted and complained.
As we learn to walk with the Lord, we have a tendency to be just as dense as those in the wilderness were. The Lord proves Himself to us all the time; we just need to open our eyes to see it, and not to forget all the blessings that have been done already. When this new challenge arises, we can trust the Lord to continue to do exactly what He’s done all along. He’s going to remove what we don’t need and provide what we do need to honor Him and advance His kingdom.
