Don’t Ask How

Is the LORD’s hand shortened?

Numbers 11:23


When the Israelites craved meat, God told Moses that He would send them so much of it that they would loathe it. Moses tried to wrap his mind around that much meat in the middle of the desert. He couldn’t imagine enough to feed 600,000 people. Moses asked God, “Shall flocks and herds be slaughtered for them, and be enough for them? Or shall all the fish of the sea be gathered together for them, and be enough for them?” God moved beyond Moses’ expectation and sent quail that was easy enough for children to catch for dinner.

Moses was asking the “how” question that many of us ask of God when we try to figure out our situations. When we are in the deep rut of despair and see no way out, God confirms in His word that He has the way. However, many of us ask Him “how?” instead of trusting that He will come through for us.

God owns the cattle on a thousand hills (Psalm 50:10). As the Creator of the earth, He is in control. It’s for our good that He doesn’t always reveal the “how” of His deliverance. As a result, our faith can rise up in the midst of the impossible. We know through the assurance of the Holy Spirit that God has not forsaken us. We know that He hears our prayers and answers according to His will. We know that He is making everything work together for our good.

Instead of asking God how, we can submit our hearts and minds to completely trust Him in the unknown. We can submit our requests to Him confidently in faith, knowing that He will do a great work in us, through us, and for us.

Prayer

Dear Lord, You are good and I trust in Your hand over my life even though I don’t understand the “how” of what You are going to do. Increase the measure of my faith through Your word. Amen.

In His Service,
