Presumption

Presumption

Numbers 14:41-45But Moses said, “Why are you disobeying the Lord’s command? This will not succeed!” Nevertheless, in their presumption they went up. Then the Amalekites attacked them and beat them down. (NIV 1978)

My Musing – In our arrogance, we often presume to know more than God. We are humbled when we find we do not. How much pain and sorrow could be avoided if we humbled ourselves before God at the outset?

My Advice – Do not stay when God says go and do not go when God says stay. There will be many times when God’s plans will not make sense to you. Those are the times you should step out on faith and do what He leads you to do. Do not presume that you know better. You never will.
