“But while they were still chewing the quail, and had hardly swallowed their first bites, God’s anger blazed out against the people… there they buried the people who craved meat.”
- This verse made me thankful for the sacrifice of Jesus Christ. God is a jealous God and his anger can be strong. I’m glad Jesus died for my sins or I feel like I could have been one of the people who died in God’s wrath.
- This verse reminded me that while God is loving, he is a force that is to be respected and feared. Modern society, including myself, does not fear God enough. Having the “fear of God” in you is a good thing.
Tomorrow is my 25th birthday. I feel pretty good about it. 24 was a year of change: got a new job, broke up with my boyfriend, lost 13 pounds, and I got baptized. I feel like 25 is going to be a great year and I’m excited to see what God has in store for me.
