The Lord said to Moses: “How long will these people reject Me? And how long will they not believe Me, with all the signs which I have performed among them?” – Numbers 14:11
“All I have needed His hand hath provided,” the hymnist wrote. Yet still we wonder… How in the world can we afford college?… Where will I find a job now that I’ve been laid off?… Will God really help me if I step out in faith?
How much evidence of God’s faithfulness will it take before we learn to trust Him? Refusing to believe God, even though He continues to provide for us, is an affront to our loving God.
It reflects an unbelief that hurts the heart of God. If you’re a parent, you undoubtedly understand that pain.
God’s provision—which is always enough and always on time—is one of His tangible ways of expressing His love for us, His children. Do you recognize the Father’s love in all He gives you? Or do you grumble and complain when what you have doesn’t satisfy you? Have you learned to expect God’s provision whenever you have need? Teach yourself to thankfully receive all that God gives you as evidence of His love and faithfulness, and then you’ll find it easier to trust Him next time.
