In Numbers 11:1-3 the Israelites complained to one another about their hardships.  Then they complained to Moses.  

Response

OH! WOW! Lord the Israelites seemed to continually complain about Your provisions.

Something to think about

Oops!  I complain too.  But Your Word says everything, yes everything, You have created is good.  Forgive me Lord for thinking or behaving otherwise.

Something to experience

I desire to be more grateful for every person, everything and every situation that comes into my life.

Prayer

Lord I pray gratitude will be our goal in every encounter and every situation (Psalm 100:3). Lord I pray our lifestyle will be acceptable to You (Ephesians 5:10; Hebrews 12:28).  Lord thank You for being concerned about us.  Thank You for causing all things to work together for good for those of us who love You and are called according to Your plan and purpose (Romans 8:28).  Thank You Lord for never bringing more into our life than what we can handle (I Corinthians 10:13).  Thank You for always having a plan (Jeremiah 29:11-13).  In Christ Jesus’ name I pray.  AMEN.

***********************************************************************

In Numbers 12:1-3 Miriam and Aaron spoke against God’s servant Moses.

Response

Oh! Wow!You Lord confronted Miriam and Aaron about their attitude and treatment of Moses.

Something to think about

God not only pointed out to Miriam and Aaron that Moses was His servant, but He also said Moses was faithful in all His house.  That with Moses He could speak face to face, clearly and not in riddles.  That Moses could see His form.

Something to experience

I need to make sure I’m honoring the men and women of God with whom I come in contact.

Prayer

Lord please reveal to each of us any foolish plans we come up with before we actually carry them out (Proverbs 9:6).  Lord I pray we will be wise men and women who store up and treasure knowledge in our mind and our heart (Proverbs 10:14). Lord help us to eliminate any wrong thoughts or wrong motives before they become actions (Proverbs 16:1).  Lord I pray we will commit our works to You and then Your Word says our plans will succeed (Proverbs 16:3).  In Christ Jesus’ name I pray.  AMEN. 

**********************************************************************

In Numbers 13-14 God tells Moses to send spies to explore the land of Canaan.

Response

Oh! Wow! Even though the spies knew God was sending them to a land chosen by Him; even though they saw how rich, fertile, and bountiful the land was, they were still fearful. 

Something to think about

Notes from my Bible: When facing a tough decision, don’t let negatives cause you to lost sight of the positives.  Don’t let potential difficulties blind you to God’s power to help and His promise to guide you.  

Something to experience

When you know it is God leading you, follow Him.

Prayer

Lord I pray we, regardless of our need, will have complete sufficiency in everything, being completely self-sufficient in You.  I pray we will do only what is best for all those with whom we come in contact (II Corinthians 9:8).  Lord I believe nothing, absolutely nothing, can separate us from Your love, which is in our Savior Christ Jesus (Romans 8:38-39).  In His name I pray. AMEN.
