Have You Looked Back Lately?

”  For all this they sinned still, and believed not for his wondrous works” (Psalm

78:32)

God miraculously delivered the Israelites after 430 years of slavery in Egypt. Time

and time again God demonstrated His power and dominion over nature and

mankind as He rescued and guided the Israelites to the land He had promised

them.

He split the Red Sea, making the water stand firm like a wall on either side of

them and allowed the Israelites to escape the pursuing Egyptian army. (Psalm

78:13)

He guided them with the cloud by day and with light from the fire all night.(Psalm

78:14)

He split the rocks in the desert and gave them water (Psalm 78:15)

He rained down food (manna) from the sky for the people to eat (Psalm 78:24)

He rained meat (quail) down on them and they ate until they were filled (Psalm

78:27-29)

Miracle after miracle, and yet the Israelites continued to sin against God…”in spite

of his wonders, they did not believe.”  But, before we’re too quick in pointing a

finger of disgust at the Israelites, let’s inspect our own lives.

What kind of miracles has God done in your life? How about God’s demonstration

of his own love for us in this: “But God commendeth his love toward us, in that,

while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us.” (Romans 5:8). Or the miracle of

new life through believing in Jesus Christ “ Therefore we are buried with him by

baptism into death: that like as Christ was raised up from the dead by the glory

of the Father, even so we also should walk in newness of life.” (Romans 6:4). Our

own relationship with God is nothing short of a miracle!

Take some time today and look back, look back at all that God has done in your

life. Keep your eyes on Him so that it will not be said of you. . . “In spite of God’s

wonders, his or her heart was not loyal to God.”
