Text: Numbers 21:4-9
“We have sinned by speaking against the Lord and against you; pray to the Lord to take away the serpents from us.”
It strikes me that God doesn’t give the people what they want. They ask for the serpents to be taken away, and instead, God tells Moses in effect to make the serpent even more present to them.
When in your life have you wanted to be relieved of some person or situation that was proving troublesome, only to find yourself even more confronted? How did you respond? What did you learn?
