God's Glory in the Tough Places
November 14, 2014 • Exodus 16-17
Far too often, we let our circumstances determine how we behave: we’re happy when times are good but, in an instant, can become profoundly unhappy the moment something goes wrong. Sometimes our unhappiness prevents us from seeing the many blessings we actually have received. As we continue in the Book of Exodus, we come to Exodus 16 & 17 and the first of many times in the history of Israel when the people of God turn against God to grumble and complain. But as we will see today on Groundwork, God’s initial reactions to these early times of complaining are quite surprising and we'll discuss how this relates to our relationship with God when we encounter tough places in our own lives.
