Read: Exodus 17:1-3
God instructed Moses to lead the Israelite's out from the Desert of Sin. They were like wanderers, traveling from place to place as the Lord commanded. They, of course fussed with Moses asking why this move from our comfortable lives to suffer. They complained that their children and cattle were starving and thirsty.
The Lord tests our faith in many ways. We do not always get what and when we want something. In this life as in theirs, we are impatient, but we all need to remember that we are being tested. God wants to know that we have faith, trust, and belief in him.
Thanks be to God’s tests which make us strong and grateful. Let’s remember that all things will get better in his time if it is his will. Amen
