I have to trust.
Otherwise I’ll act like the Israelites as they wandered around in the desert. Whining. Stubborn. Forgetting all the things God had already done for them. Showing no gratitude for how God was currently leading them and providing for them.
It’s a fact that I have even less excuse for this kind of bad behavior than they did because, as a believer living under the New Covenant, I have the Spirit of God living in me. They didn’t have the Holy Spirit.
Yes, I have the Holy Spirit, but if I don’t trust in the love and grace of God, I will be just like them. If I don’t let God lead me and fight my battles for me, I will cut myself off from his blessings just like they did.
If I forget how faithful God has been to me all of my life, I will become a bitter grumbler just like them.
I’m not going to do that. I choose to believe, trust and put my faith in the One True God, Creator of the Universe.
What do you choose?
I love you, Abba Father.
