Leaving Egypt Behind

Scripture: Exodus 16:20, But they did not listen to Moses, and some left part of it until morning, and it bred worms, and became foul; and Moses was angry with them.

Suspicion seeps into our thoughts distorting our relationships, our energy and our mental health. It casts a shadow over all activities. We begin to wonder if others truly say what they mean. Are they hiding secrets from us? Do they have ulterior motives? Unchecked, suspicion can lead us into mental illness.

Some Israelites could not trust what they saw in tangible form. Was it real, was it true, would it disappear? Did God have any ulterior motives? Maybe this was all a plot to lead them deeper into the wilderness, then desert them.

Soon distrust produces disobedience. “To the pure, all things are pure; but to those who are defiled and unbelieving, nothing is pure, but both their mind and their conscience are defiled.” Worms of bitterness breed roots inside us.

Who don’t I trust, Lord, You or me? Why when You answer prayers and show me Your love, do I suddenly watch for the downside, or the other shoe to drop? Forgive my rude response to Your generosity. Forgive me for attaching to You my own diseased motives. Keep me, Lord, from worms of suspicion.

Psalm of Worship: Psalm 40:4

How blessed is the man who has made the Lord his trust,

And has not turned to the proud, nor to those who lapse into falsehood.
