Numbers 13:1-2,25-14:1,26-29,34-35 Ps.106, Matthew 15:21-28

Feelings are cruel dictators

God wills the best for us but allows consequences and will never negate free will. Adult faith requires trust in God and discernment, not simply reacting on feelings. In the Numbers account God told the Israelites he was giving them the land. Focusing on feeling like ‘grasshoppers’ they let fear control them, and ended up opposing God. They saw results as totally dependent on their ability. Feelings are cruel dictators. We all feel like grasshoppers before giants sometimes. The Canaanite woman trusted God, persisting in her request. What do I need to trust God about today?
