Adjusting to the New Season
In this new season, we must adjust. We won’t be able to wear a waitress’s uniform to put out a fire nor will we be able to wear shorts and T-shirt to work in the Arctic Circle. Tennis attire simply will not sustain someone who has discovered themselves in an Arctic environment. We can gripe about present circumstances or we can adjust. Murmurers can complain about not having leeks and garlic. (Compare: Num 11:1 “Now the people became like those who complain of adversity in the hearing of the LORD; and when the LORD heard it, His anger was kindled, and the fire of the LORD burned among them and consumed some of the outskirts of the camp.” Also vv.2-10) We can gripe about Egypt, Babylon and the Philistines or we can use the weapons provided by the Holy Spirit and take over. The gifts and armament of the Spirit are not adequate to hold on. They are sufficient to win. Jehovah’s people were never meant to just hold on. They have always been actively included in His purposes of victory.
