“Wouldn’t it be better for us to return to Egypt?”

“Wouldn’t it be better for us to return to Egypt?”
“Then the whole community began weeping aloud, and they cried all night. Their voices rose in a great chorus of protest against Moses and Aaron. “If only we had died in Egypt or even here in the wilderness!” they complained. “Why is the Lord taking us to this country only to have us die in battle? Our wives and our little ones will be carried off as plunder! Wouldn’t it be better for us to return to Egypt?” Then they plotted among themselves, “Let’s choose a new leader and go back to Egypt!”
Numbers 14:1-4 (NLT)
Earlier in Numbers Chapter 13.
The people of Israel just received two reports.
Majority report based on exaggerated fears.
Minority report with faith based on the Promise of God.
God appointed Moses to lead the Israelites into the promised land.
Since they met Moses, the Israelites experienced the guidance God gave through Moses.
They saw miracles.
Despite these experiences, fear gripped them.
The Israelites decided to abandon Moses and choose their own leader.
Why?
They were afraid.
What Joshua and Caleb were saying did not make common sense.
They can not figure out how it could be done.
We often do the same.
We follow our own heads.
We do not listen to the word of God.
We do not wait for His Promise to manifest.
We chose a new “Leading Thought.”
We reason and talk ourselves out of His Promise.
What challenges are you facing today?
Whose report is guiding your decision?
Don’t abandon the promise of God.
Don’t return to your old ways.
God is Faithful.
He Never Fails.
Application to the Christian life:
Recognize the voice of God.
Hear His voice and listen.
Obey Him.
