“But for a whole month — until it comes out of your nostrils and becomes loathsome to you — because you have rejected the Lord who is among you, and have wailed before him, saying; ‘ why did we ever leave Egypt?’ Numbers 11:20
God was addressing Moses here, after Moses went to Him on behalf of the Israelites who severely complained and in dire need for meat. Like I stated in my previous posts, the Biblical Israelites did not fully appreciate the manifestations of God in their lives.
Now, they earnestly complained for meat, and worst of all, they threatened Moses by saying they regretted coming out Egypt.
When referring to Egypt in proverbial form, we mean it is a place of dead, horror, isolation and such that anyone must flee from. It is not a place of comfort; rather it is a haven of hell.
God loved the Biblical Israelites so much, He did all for them, brought them out from slavery, nursed their pains, comfort them in their moment of agony, soothed them during their depression, wiped away their tears, all, when the need arise and treated them with extreme love BUT these people are so ungrateful.
I am not going to dwell on this here, because you knew what eventually happened as result of their ungrateful demand. Sure, they got the meat they cried out for but when you read through, Numbers 11:33; you will understand the penalty they paid for their attitude.
In the post, I want to liken your situation with that of the Israelites. When God brought you out of a place unto another, do not complain. It may be in your place of work that you have a sudden change, or it may be that as result of terrible situation, you are faced with no options than to relocate from your present home, office or country.
What you may not realise is that you are moving out of your Egypt to your God given divine Canaan land, a place where you will find peace that surpasses all human understanding. It is in your best interesting that life must switch the page for you.
Anywhere you are newly, do not complain, rather, appreciate God for giving you a new place, a new home, a new job, or a new country. The more you show your gratitude to God, the more you are telling God that you acknowledge His love over you and surely, He will move the more on you behalf.
Do not be like the Biblical Israelites who failed to understand how much God loved them and instead took Him for granted.
I implore you, avoid complaining to God, no matter the situation you found yourself. Make it the opposite, and that is, give Him praise and continue to believe Him for better change. And He will help you.
