And the people complained in the hearing of the LORD about their misfortunes, and when the LORD heard it, his anger was kindled, and the fire of the LORD burned among them and consumed some outlying parts of the camp. —Numbers 11:1

And the LORD said to Moses, “Is the LORD’s hand shortened? Now you shall see whether my word will come true for you or not.” —Numbers 11:23

            Our Lord is not happy with us when we complain about our misfortunes. As a matter of fact we are told that He is angry when we complain. Why would this be so? It is because we do not trust Him when things do not go according to our expectations.   Do we put our expectations above His?   Do we see the big picture as He does?   Do we trust that He has our best interests in mind? Do we know better than He? Are we thinking to be gods of our own lives instead of yielding to Him who is Creator and Sustain of all of creation? Do we believe that He will carry out His Word? Do we anticipate our God doing the supernatural? Are we looking to Him to do so? Do we really believe He is working on our behalf?

            The answers that we give to those questions indicate where our trust/belief/faith really lies. So regardless of what we are going through right now, how are we answering those questions? How do you view God? How do you view yourself? How do you view your situation? What are you saying to our Lord? Are you even going to Him?

            Brother and Sister God is in control. He can handle your life and mine as we go through things in this fallen world as it all has been affected by sin. He knows what is best and how He is working out things for His glory and our benefit. Dear Father may we rest in knowing You are ultimately in control and that we can trust You fully. May we do so in the power of Your Holy Spirit and in the authority of Jesus.  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-H9JHdsn-EQ

Keep your eyes fixed on Jesus regardless of what this race marked out for us includes. — Hebrews 12:1-2
