Just Around the Corner

  • and they went a three days journey in the wilderness of Etham and camped at Marah. And they set out from Marah and came to Elim; at Elim there were twelve springs of water and seventy palm trees, and they camped there. Numbers 33:8–9 ESV

    The Israelites had been traveling for three days through a desert wasteland when they arrived at Marah, thirsty and out of water. The water at Marah was bitter (poisoned) and they could not drink it so they began to grumble against Moses. When Moses prayed, God showed him a tree that he threw into the water and it became sweet.

    Their very next stop was Elim, where there were twelve springs of water. An abundance of water, a spring for each of the twelve tribes and even seventy palm trees for them to rest under. More than they asked for. This test was no water in sight, but it was just around the corner. The next test was no food in sight, but it was just around the corner.

    Do not give up when what you need is not yet in sight. It is just a test of your faith. You will have the chance to trust God, or to murmur and complain each time. What you need is waiting just around the next corner.
