Where are You God? Learning to Trust When Times Are Tough is a 365-day devotional and journal to which I contributed 30 devos. I submitted mine last fall having no idea how relevant this book would be to those suffering physically, emotionally and economically. God’s timing is perfect. Below is a sample.
Then the LORD said to Moses, “Has my arm lost its power? Now you will see whether or not my word comes true!” (Number 11:23).
Moses was facing a growing revolt among the people whom God had delivered from brutal slavery in Egypt. They were complaining about having to eat manna for breakfast, lunch, dinner and bedtime snacks. “We remember the fish we used to eat for free in Egypt. And we had all the cucumbers, melons, leeks, onions, and garlic we wanted. But now our appetites are gone. All we ever see is this manna!” (Numbers 11:5-6). Apparently, they had forgotten the slim rations of slave laborers.
So, God promises the whining Hebrews meat for an entire month. Moses objects saying it would be impossible even if they slaughtered all their flocks and emptied the sea of fish.
“Then the Lord said to Moses, ‘Has my arm lost its power? Now you will see whether or not my word comes true!’”
And, so, for two days swarms of quail invaded the camp until each person had collected fifty bushels of meat!
Are you facing what seems like an impossible situation? Trust Him to meet your need—abundantly!
Father, thank you that in this time of loss, you are not at a loss to keep your word.
