Explaining the foolishness of their fears, L.E Romaine points out,
“God had given them water from the rock, given them manna, fought all their battles up to that point, and all of a sudden [they believed] God couldn’t take them any further. That’s what happens to us.
God can get you saved, give you everlasting life, and prepare a place for you. So we’re willing to believe, “Yeah, okay I’ve got everlasting life. I go to be with the Lord. I don’t have to worry about it—that’s all been taken care of. What I’ve got to worry about now is to see how am I going to get the rent?”
The other ten spies, as well as the camp of Israel had also tasted and seen that God is good, but they had forgotten the multitude of God's mercies. (Psalm 106:7) How easy it is for me to get overwhelmed with the headaches and heartaches of life when the multitude of God's mercies is not in the forefront of my mind. By choosing to meditate on His mercies rather than on my problems, I am blessed with the peace that surpasses all understanding. Problems are inevitable (John 16:33; Matt. 6:34) However we can rest easy in the promises and faithfulness of God. Because Jesus has met out greatest need, of salvation, we can trust Him to take care of the rest of our needs--however great they may be.
