There are times in life when we just want to settle down in the land of victimization. Things don’t go according to plan; others don’t agree with our point of view and their comments are irritating.
The Israelites were, in some ways, safe when living in both Egypt and the desert. They knew what to expect and had good reason to complain regarding conditions. We act in a similar way when we give into thoughts of victimization.
It’s not, however, God’s place for us.
That leaves only one solution: take the plunge into the unknown! It is a little intimidating and uncomfortable, but it could have a better result. It leaves little room for victimization and plenty of room for God to take us to the other side of freedom.
