Day 39: Spiritual Food in Quarantine
When faced with a difficult situation, the Israelites gave in to the temptation to trust in Egypt rather than God’s will. Egypt is a symbol of the world’s system. The Jews wished they had stayed there where “they had meat and ate all the food they wanted.” That’s not true. They were slaves in oppression doing hard labor and treated as scum. But temptation always deceives. The truth is that apart from Jesus, the only way to God, we have no life in us. But if we abide in Him, His joy will be in us and it will be true and full. The current pandemic rendered the whole world impotent. It should actually teach us that we cannot put our trust in anything other than God.
