“Do not test the LORD your God as you did at Massah.” (Deuteronomy 6:16)
How did the people test the Lord at Massah? The story is found in Exodus 17. The people were without water. They got thirsty. The thirstier they became the more they grumbled. Moses, the man God put in charge of the nation, talked to God about their situation. God said to strike a rock and water would come forth. Moses obeyed and God provided.
Do you test God as the people of Israel did? Grumbling against God, complaining when he doesn’t provide as you expect?
Quit yer whinin’!
Do not put the Lord to the test. When you complain, you’re saying God isn’t good. You’re dishonoring his name.
Rather than bemoan what God has not given you today, why not give thanks to him for what he has supplied?
