Trust in the Lord with all your heart, and do not rely on your own insight. In all your ways acknowledge him, and he will make straight your paths. – Proverbs 3:5-6 (NRSV)

I fasted and prayed. To my surprise, God heard my prayers on the very first day of my fast. I was selected in the second provisional list. I felt sheepish that I had been complaining for no reason. This was a miracle God was already about to perform!

As a result of the complaining, Moses named the place “testing” and “complaining.” Maybe had they waited patiently and trusted God, they would still have enjoyed the miracle of water gushing from the rock at Horeb. Then the place could instead have been named “trusting” and “rejoicing.” In difficult situations, instead of putting God to the test, we can trust that God will care for us.
