Num 11:1 And the people complained in the hearing of Yahveh about their adversity, and when Yahveh heard it, his anger was kindled, and the fire of Yahveh burned among them and consumed some borders of the camp.
Num 11:2 Then the people cried out to Moses, and Moses prayed to Yahveh, and the fire died down.
Num 11:3 So the name of that place was called Taberah, because the fire from Yahveh had burned among them.
tested at Taberah
The Israelites had been promised good things from the LORD. As they moved from place to place, they were responsible to live the life of faith — putting their faith in God for a better future. But the adversities of the journey tested their faith. They began to openly complain . God had warned them about his burning anger. It took the intercessory prayer of Moses to stop the destructive blaze.
LORD, give us the faith to endure whatever adversity we must face without complaining, so that we demonstrate a solid faith in your promises for our future.
