As we journey through life, we often come to certain stops along the way where we use an all too familiar saying "life is good". It is a place where everything appears on the surface to be what you and I was just waiting for. Perhaps its the new job, a new home/apartment. Maybe you have found the perfect mate and the list goes on and on. It's the place where you expect things to go well because you have done what was required to get to where you are now. So life should be good right? Not exactly.
Scripture teaches us, in Exodus 15:22-26 when Moses was leading the children of Israel they too had expectations. "Life was good" They had just been singing songs of praise for the protection and deliverance that God had bestowed upon them as their enemies (Pharaoh's Army) were overthrown in the Red Sea, only to be found later complaining because they were thirsty and had arrived at a destination that looked promising! The waters of Marah! A place where their thirsty expectations would be satisfied. But upon further examination they could not drink the water because it was "bitter". But as they cried out to God he gave Moses directions to cast a tree in the waters of Marah and they became sweet.
You see my Sisters and Brothers, while reaching certain goals in life, we must be aware that once we arrive our anticipated expectations may turn bitter. Have you ever considered the fact that in moments like this, God is reaching out for you to trust him? God can change the bitter expectations in your life into sweet expressions of faith. Let him have yours today.
God Bless You
