|Who Do You Turn To?
By Greg Sanders
Numbers 20:6 Moses and Aaron turned away from the people and went to the entrance of the Tabernacle,[b] where they fell face down on the ground. Then the glorious presence of the Lord appeared to them,
Life is unfair. Many times in the middle of doing what you know God has instructed you to do things go wrong. This was the scenario for Moses. He was attempting to lead God’s people to the Promise Land but along the path many difficulties plagued the journey. Who you turn to in difficult times is an indicator of who you trust.
Many have turned to people instead of God. Maybe they are good people. They may even be qualified people, but people can only help so much. The people who have the most genuine desire to help you are still limited by their own resources and abilities. Good people cannot provide the good word, the perfect instruction, and strength that you need in the moment you need it. It is not that they do not desire to help; they just are unable.
You need to place your trust in God by turning to Him when life goes wrong. Only He has the strength and the peace to sustain you. When Moses needed help, he turned to God and God met him in a wonderful way. When you involve the supernatural God you serve, you are giving opportunity for Him to do things that are beyond the natural realm of operation. Something supernatural happened when Moses turned to God. God met him and gave him instructions that meet their needs and allowed the people to know that God was in control.
Today’s Challenge: When you feel out of control, turn to the One who is in control. He can equip you with the needed strength, peace, and resources to make it through the journey.
