Grace and Peace to You All This Day -

I think we would all agree that we are living in tumultuous times and challenging days.

But regardless of what may be swirling around us, we can indeed have, as Isaiah declares, "peace like a river" within our souls.

My youngest son Benjamin just released a beautifully done new two-minute video on experiencing The God of Peace providing His Perfect Peace to you and me.

It is indeed an important message for the the times we're in!

And "may the God of Hope fill you with all joy and peace in believing..." (Romans 15:13)



Daily Devotional
September 27
And when the people complained, it displeased the LORD: and the LORD heard it; and his anger was kindled; and the fire of the LORD burnt among them, and consumed them that were in the uttermost parts of the camp. And the people cried unto Moses; and when Moses prayed unto the LORD, the fire was quenched. And he called the name of the place Taberah: because the fire of the LORD burnt among them.
Numbers 11:1–3
The Lord had given instruction to His people. He had appeared unto them. He had been patient with them. And now at last, the trumpets are sounding. Moses says, “Rise up, O Lord, and go before us.” Now, the children of Israel are on their way, and the first thing they do is complain about something evidently so insignificant that Scripture doesn’t even bother to record the reason. Oh, it must have seemed important to the Israelites at the time, but from God’s perspective, it wasn’t.

After hearing their complaints, it’s as if the Lord gave His people something to complain about through the fire that broke out in their midst. The lesson is a good one for me because through it I understand that complaining causes confusion. If I’m complaining about something in one part of my life, a fire is sure to flare up in another part.

In his letter to the Galatians, Paul tells us that if we bite and devour one another, we ourselves will be consumed (5:15). And here at the outset of the Israelites’ journey, God reminds us that we’ll get burned if we’re a people given to complaining.
