Before we delve into today’s episode of our daily bible study, let us have a brief review of the previous episode.
In the previous episode of our daily bible study nugget, we discussed the topic that says; fear not, because fear zaps your energy. In that episode, we learned that when the Israelites saw pharaoh and his armies majestically coming after them, the became afraid.
They feared that pharaoh and his armies will annihilate them in the desert. Out of fear, the spoke against Moses, and blamed him for taking them out of Egypt. At that moment, they forgot that God was with them, and was going to save them. Out of fear they panicked and felt vulnerable. In that very episode, we learned that we should not allow fear to hold grip of us, because fear makes one lose focus and feel helpless. Fear zaps energy and should be avoided at all times. If you have not watched that video, it is in the playlist, endeavor to watch it after watching today’s episode.
In today’s episode, we will discuss the topic that says; be mindful of what you say when troubled, lest you regret it.
From the same verses of the bible that we got the lesson of the previous episode, we also got the message for today’s episode.
The book of Exodus chapter 14 verse 10 says; As Pharaoh approached, the Israelites looked up, and there were the Egyptians marching after them. They were terrified and cried out to the Lord. Verses 11 and 12 says, they said to Moses, was it because there were no graves in Egypt that you brought us to the desert to die? What have you done to us by bringing us out of Egypt? Didn’t we say to you in Egypt, leave us alone; let us serve the Egyptians? It would have been better for us to serve the Egyptians than to die in the desert!
These where the words of the Israelites to Moses when they saw pharaoh and his army. Those statements showed extreme lack of faith in God. It is obvious that the situation the Israelites found themselves at that moment was a critical and troublesome one, but they couldn’t hold their lips.
Most of us are quick to make unnecessary utterances when trouble looms, and then begin to regret them in the end.
That trouble comes your way, does not mean that it is the end of the world. Some troubles come to test you, some come to discipline you, some, to train you. Do not open your mouth to speak ill whenever you feel things are not working out well for you. It displeases God when his children show lack of faith. Whenever trouble comes your way, always remain faithful and Look up to God for salvation; do not speak ill of God or about anything. Guide your tongue against uttering blonder. Like the psalmist says in the book of psalm 39 verse 1; “I will watch my ways and keep my tongue from sin; I will put a muzzle on my mouth while in the presence of the wicked. Here, king David is teaching us the need too keep calm in the face of adversity and trouble.
Therefore, child of God; never allow your momentary unpleasant condition make you speak ill of your creator, or say something that you will live to regret. Always hold your peace in the face of adversity. It might seem difficult, but the reward weighs more than the consequences of regretting your speech. May God help us guide our tongues in the face of adversity. Amen.
