Numbers 14:3 And wherefore hath the LORD brought us unto this land, to fall by the sword, that our wives and our children should be a prey? were it not better for us to return into Egypt?
God had brought them to the border of the promised land. All of His great goodness and provision stood there in front of them. All they had to do was believe, and He would give it to them. Instead, they saw the problems and obstacles. They saw the why not instead of His love. They saw the battle, not the blessing. They wanted to go back to slavery. They wanted to continue with the life they knew rather than trust God for what He had for them.
They said God wanted to harm them. They were angry. They look at themselves so much that they couldn’t see what God was doing for them.
How many times do you act like that? You see your problems instead of His power. You see obstacles instead of opportunity. Isn’t it time to trust God and see what He has for you?
