Man was given ‘Angel food’, yes, manna from above!
And quail when they craved fresh meat! How is that for Father’s love?
“Streams in the desert” just struck a rock and there
A stream poured forth and followed them, just near everywhere!
Whatever they needed God gave them where ever they went!
Sometimes, around in circles, believe it! They were sent
Until the old doubters, old fogies, had all cashed in!
The complaining unbelievers, yes, complaining is a sin!
Caleb and old Joshua were the only old folk left!
They entered the Promised Land and in it made a cleft!
A cleft not the whole deal the Promised Land was all theirs.
They claimed a little here and there but nothing to compare–
To what God had promised them so they were all bereft.
They dared not say God cheated them, they got just what was left!
So compromise as we today seem satisfied to stay
Just on the fringes of God’s care, oh sure we sing and pray–
But then refuse to follow Him wherever He would lead.
Green pastures on a higher plane He would have us bask and feed!
It is sure we do not trust Him. We claim we do but no!
Afraid that where he would lead, we maybe would not want to go!
Trust, sometimes I wonder, have we ever learned to trust?
Trust and obey, for trusting Jesus is a must!
If you have failed Him, beg forgiveness! Sure you know that is the key!
I confess I have failed Him often but ask forgiveness, works for me!
