Therefore, as the Holy Spirit says,
“Today, if you hear his voice,
do not harden your hearts as in the rebellion,
on the day of testing in the wilderness,
where your fathers put me to the test
and saw my works for forty years.
Therefore I was provoked with that generation,
and said, ‘They always go astray in their heart;
they have not known my ways.’
Jesus is refering to the Jews in the desert. Interesting how some people think He tested the people. That is why they spent such a devastating 40yrs in the desert. We think the 40yrs were a testing of the peoples trust on God. When it goes tough on us, we always think that God is testing us. Dtrangely enough, sometimes, just sometimes…… We are the ones testing God. The reason why the people walked in circles in the desert is because they lacked the faith to do the one thing they had to do. For them it was an instruction to take on the Giants. They were testing God! He was not testing them. Interesting how miracles followed them, one after the other, but they went nowhere.
Today……. Don’t hearden your heart. Stop testing God’s goodness. Do what He has instructed! It is time to trust Him! Not for survival, but for victory.
Let’s do this
In His service for His own
