McCheyne’s Bible Reading Plan: Ex 16, Lk 19, Job 34, 2 Co 4

Your grumbling is not against us but against the LORD. (Ex 16:8)

For the Son of Man came to seek and to save the lost. (Lk 19:10)

Though our outer self is wasting away, our inner self is being renewed day by day. For this light momentary affliction is preparing for us an eternal weight of glory beyond all comparison, as we look not to the things that are seen but to the things that are unseen. For the things that are seen are transient, but the things that are unseen are eternal (2 Co 4:16-18)

When you complain and grumble (as the Israelites did while wandering in the wilderness time and time again), it is ultimately against the Lord who is in complete sovereign control. This is quite convicting. But thank God Jesus came to save the grumbler, and that salvation turns those things that once caused us to grumble (consider Paul) into a means of preparing us for “an eternal weight of glory.”
