See  Whether My Word  Will Come True  for You  Or Not

In general,  people are terrible,  thankless complainers.     What we want,  we want  right now  —  and would have preferred  to have received it yesterday.     Then,  when we do get it  in a wondrous abundance,  we aren’t thankful,  but want more  of other things  —  so-called better things.

That’s how it was  for the Israelites  after they escaped slavery  in Egypt  and were traveling  through the desert.     They greedily complained about wanting the  “good” foods  in Egypt,  instead of  their daily dose  of manna.     Moses felt so overcome  with all their complaining.     He didn’t think  he could take it  any more.     Moses laid his burden  before the LORD.     God then promised  that He would  give the people  the meat  they desired.     But, Moses wondered how  that could ever be possible  in the desert.     The following conversation took place in Numbers 11:21-23,

But Moses said,  “The people,  among whom I am,  are 600,000 on foot;  yet You have said,  ‘I will give them meat  in order that they may eat  for a whole month.’     Should flocks  and herds be slaughtered  for them,  to be sufficient  for them?     Or should all the fish  of the sea  be gathered together  for them,  to be sufficient  for them?”

And the LORD said  to Moses,  “Is the LORD’s power limited?     Now you shall see  whether  My word will  come true  for you  or not.”

To gain a better perspective,  we need  to know  that  “600,000  on foot”  was counting the men capable  of serving  as soldiers.     By the time  one figures in the rest  of their population,  the number  was probably  around two million.     No wonder  Moses thought  about needing  to slaughter  all their livestock  and getting  all the fish  in the sea.     Our minds  would imagine  the same.

We just cannot grasp  the power  of God.     Absolutely nothing  is impossible  for the LORD.     After all,  He alone  created all  that there is.     His wisdom  is infinite  and His power  is without limit.     All things  are possible  for the LORD God Almighty.     Whether God is creating  everything  in creation  —  fulfilling prophecies  about a Savior  over thousands  of years  of time  —  or taking care  of our individual needs,  all things  are possible  for Him.

That means  we need  to accept  the fact  that God is LORD  of lords,  and King  of kings.     He is not  a lifeless hunk  of wood,  stone,  or metal  shaped  to be an idol.     There simply is  no other LORD  or God.     All of our well-being  is in His hands.     And we need  to trust  and accept  His limitless  power  and love  in Christ Jesus.

Our utter unbelief,  complaining,  greed,  and thanklessness  is like a slap  in the face  to our  one-and-only  Almighty Creator  and Redeemer.     We have no right  to act the way  we do.

Facing the facts  of our being  and blessings,  we say,  “Hallelujah!     LORD,  Your love  and tender care  more than deserves  our heartfelt worship  and praise  every day  of our lives.”

Love,
Margaret
