Session 4.12 for March 18, 2012
In Numbers 21:4-9 we learn about the complaints of the Israelites as they wondered in the desert. They had their basic needs provided for, yet they complained to God for a better life. Sound familiar? In our world, we often complain of a hard life, and we definitely don’t live in a harsh desert. This passage reminds us that God does not necessarily take away the trials or discomfort. Rather, God offers us healing in the midst of our pain. Jesus is our provision in the desert that provides us with hope and comfort even in the midst of sin and death.
