Week 9 Day 6
The problem is lack of trust God is saying "Trust me together we can do amazing things."
When the people spoke against God and Moses it was frustration and anger on their part They were not in control of their fate just like it had been when they were slaves So they continued their slave mentality complaining and blaming others for their condition
It is a long road to freedom and responsibility
It also can be a long road to belief and trust in God. THE CONQUERING ARMY The tables turn in Israel's favor. Numbers 21 & 22
4Then they journeyed from Mount Hor by the way of the Red Sea, to go around the land of Edom; and the people spoke against God and against Moses: "Why have you brought us up out of Egypt to die in the wilderness? For there is no food and no water, and our soul loathes this worthless bread." 6So the Lord sent fiery serpents among the people, and they bit the people; and many of the people of Israel died. 7Therefore the people came to Moses and said, "We have sinned, for we have spoken against the Lord and against you; pray to the Lord that He take away the serpents from us." So Moses prayed for the people. 8Then the Lord said to Moses, "Make a fiery serpent, and set it on a pole; it shall be that everyone who is bitten, when he looks at it, shall live." 9So Moses made a bronze serpent on a pole; and so it was, if a serpent had bitten anyone, when he looked at the bronze serpent, he lived. 21Then Israel sent messengers to Sihon king of the Amorites, saying, 22"Let me pass through your land. We will not turn aside into fields or vineyards; we will not drink water from wells. We will go by the King's Highway until we have passed through your territory." 23But Sihon would not allow Israel to pass through his territory. So Sihon gathered all his people together and went out against Israel in the wilderness, and he came to Jahaz and fought against Israel. 24Then Israel defeated him with the edge of the sword, and took possession of his land from the Arnon to the Jabbok, as far as the people of Ammon; for the border of Ammon was fortified. 25So Israel took all these cities, and Israel dwelt in the cities of the Amorites, in Heshbon and in all its villages. 31Thus Israel dwelt in the land of the Amorites. 32Then Moses sent to spy out Jazer; and they took its villages and drove out the Amorites who were there. 33And they turned and went up by the way to Bashan. So Og king of Bashan went out against them, he and all his people, to battle at Edrei. 34The Lord said to Moses, "Do not fear him, for I have delivered him into your hand, his people and his land; and you shall do to him as you did to Sihon of the Amorites, who dwelt at Heshbon.'' 35So they defeated him, his sons, and all his people, until there was no survivor left him; and they took possession of his land.
