Our three year old girl loves the story of Moses. I think it has a lot to do with the fact that a princess found baby Moses (and isn’t every story better with a princess?) Plus later in the story she gets to sing “Pharaoh, Pharaoh oh, oh let my people go” (to the tune of Louie Louie).
At the end of the story when we get to the Israelites wandering in the dessert and their WHINING and complaining. I think, “HELLO!!! Remember the crazy plagues God sent to Egypt yet protected all of you? Maybe the cloud that lead your way to freedom….does that ring a bell? Oh I know perhaps the PARTING OF THE RED SEA will remind you that He still has whole world in my hands including your little situation here in the dessert.”
It’s so easy for me to read their story, knowing the outcome, and think they have such little faith. But what if someone were reading my life story? They would read. how God rescued me from a life going nowhere and gave me a life of joy and freedom. They would read how just last year my husband lost his job and even though I worried, God had the whole situation in his hands and gave him an amazing new job. There would be stories of how I worried over the big and small stuff of everyday and God always made a beautiful outcome.
The same God that wrote our past is writing our future. So why do we worry or complain? He can be trusted. He has proven himself faithful so many times in my past and I trust He will do the same in my future.
Yes tomorrow is uncertain. But so was yesterday. There has been so many moments in my life when God showed up at just the right time and in just the right way. I will trust that tomorrow will be no different. He is the same God of yesterday and today. My faith may waiver but his love never will.
He STILL HAS THE WHOLE WORLD IN HIS HANDS.
I love your comments. Do find yourself caught in worry?
