Moses, a great man of God, found himself in that frame of mind one day.
God gave Moses the task of bringing the Israelites out of their slavery in Egypt, into the land He had promised. Moses followed God's instructions, and the people were indeed freed.
As they traveled through the wilderness, the people began to complain to Moses. They began remembering the food that they ate freely, even in bondage.
They told Moses, "But now our whole being is dried up: there is nothing at all except this manna before our eyes! (Numbers 11:6)
After this encounter with the people, Moses goes before the Lord and says, "Where am I to get meat to give to all these people? For they weep all over me, saying, 'Give us meat, that we may eat.' (Numbers 11:13)
God's answer to Moses was this: "Has the Lord's arm been shortened? Now you shall see whether what I say will happen or not." (Numbers 11:23)
Sometimes, we become so focused on receiving a blessing, and so anxious about how it will take place, that we begin to imagine many obstacles. All we can see is a dry wilderness of impossibility. How could God ever bring us to the promised place of blessing from where we are now?
We think like this because we are trying to reason with our limited understanding.
Our thinking is so very limited, God's is infinite, He has no limitations.
Our part in this process of being taught by God, is to focus our eyes on Christ. He alone is our source of blessing.
Will you join me today in giving God that small seed of faith that we have. No matter how small it may look, He will honor it.
