So You Want To Go Back To Egypt -The Saturday Morning Post

Today’s Passage – Numbers 11 – 13 (Click on the references to listen to the audio – Click here to view the passage from Blue Letter Bible)

(Second Milers also read – Acts 16 – 18; Proverbs 19; Psalms 96 – 100)

Read the “0219 Evening and Morning“ devotion for today, by the late Charles Haddon Spurgeon.

“And when the people complained, it displeased the LORD: and the LORD heard it; and his anger was kindled; and the fire of the LORD burnt among them, and consumed them that were in the uttermost parts of the camp.” (Numbers 11:1)

Good morning. If it wasn’t for God’s grace, I would have been burnt up a long time ago. When the people complained, it displeased the LORD, and made Him angry. Know what? It still does.

“It is of the LORD’S mercies that we are not consumed, because his compassions fail not. They are new every morning: great is thy faithfulness. The LORD is my portion, saith my soul; therefore will I hope in him. The LORD is good unto them that wait for him, to the soul that seeketh him. It is good that a man should both hope and quietly wait for the salvation of the LORD.” (Lamentations 3:22-26)

The LORD gave us everything we have. The good things come from God; bad things from the devil. Jesus said…

“These things I have spoken unto you, that in me ye might have peace. In the world ye shall have tribulation: but be of good cheer; I have overcome the world.” (John 16:33)

Bad things are going to happen: in this world you will have tribulation, but…

“It is good that a man should both hope and quietly wait for the salvation of the LORD.” (Lamentations 3:22-26)

The Bible says that without faith, it is impossible to please God. When we complain, we are saying: “LORD, do you know what you’re doing?”

Of course He knows what He is doing. When we complain, we are not having (and not showing others) faith in the LORD.

“It is good that a man should both hope and quietly wait for the salvation of the LORD.” (Lamentations 3:22-26)

Me and Camille were talking about Melissa. Ten years and three days ago, the LORD saw fit to take her home. February 16, 2012, at 1:15 am early Thursday morning. We cried out to the LORD looking for an answer to the question: why? Because of our complaining to the LORD, we could not see that He answered our prayer: to heal Melissa. No more arthritis pain. No more pain from all the operations she had. And no more cancer.

But best of all, because she received Jesus as her Saviour, we will see her again in heaven. What a reunion that will be. Stop complaining about the life you were dealt because…

It is good that a man should both hope and quietly wait for the salvation of the LORD.” (Lamentations 3:22-26)

Peace.
