Moses reported the Lord's Words, what God had said to him, not what he thought about what God said. God help us Pastors be reporters and not entertainers!
Thousands of years ago Moses expressed the desire for God to put His Spirit upon all the Lord's people. His desire has become a reality! At the moment of Salvation the Holy Spirit comes to live in every Believer. It is our decision after that as to whether He rules or we rule. Have you made your choice?
When my desire is different from God's danger lurks (meat instead of manna)! When my wants reject God's provision danger lurks! The Israelites "craved meat from Egypt." They preferred the taste of sin and slavery over the taste of God's provision and freedom and they paid dearly. They got so much of Egypt that they died!
Complaining against God's man is complaining against God and God hears every thing. Just ask Miriam & Aaron!
Chap 13 - Worldly vision causes us to see giants and ignore God! The giant's power instead of His becomes our focus. The Spies recognized a half truth, the giants of this world are always stronger than we are. The half truth left out and that we so often leave out is "Greater is He that is in us than He that is in the world!"
Are you focusing on your Giant instead of your God?
The Spies went around camp talking about their weakness to over come giants. Remember, bad talking by a few of God's people leads to rebellion and fear and a missed promise from God.
