After a busy end of February, Questioning Tuesday returns today!
Then I said to you, “Do not be terrified; do not be afraid of them. The LORD your God, who is going before you, will fight for you, as he did for you in Egypt, before your very eyes, and in the wilderness. There you saw how the LORD your God carried you, as a father carries his son, all the way you went until you reached this place.” In spite of this, you did not trust in the LORD your God, who went ahead of you on your journey, in fire by night and in a cloud by day, to search out places for you to camp and to show you the way you should go. -Deuteronomy 1:29-33
This morning I read this section and had to pause. It was a shake from Moses deep down within me. You see, I don’t know about you, but I resemble the Israelites far more than I resemble Moses, man of humility and leadership. Quickly, far too quickly it seems, I will forget God’s goodness and sovereignty the moment a problem arises in my life. I will go from zero to freak out at the mention of an issue. Instead of remembering His faithfulness in providing, in going ahead to set up camp, to being right there with me, I believe the lie I am alone in it and He’s left me.
