I used to get so frustrated with the Israelites. It was beyond me how they could see so many miraculous signs and wonders from God and still question Him and His motives. I wondered how they could be so quick to forget how God had delivered them out of Egypt, sustained them in the wilderness, parted the Red Sea and the Jordan River and all of the other “God” things He performed.
Then I came to realize that I, too, am an Israelite. I forget all the wonders God has performed in my life. I have been worried or stressed out time after time when I know He had delivered me from much worse in the past.
How do we become the faithful, who always have their eyes on God and “trust in the Lord with all our hearts and lean not on our own understanding?”
