When God rescued Israel from bondage they encountered a few problems on the way to the promised land but it could not be compared with the bondage of slavery. They even complained about the free meal “manna” from heaven. They started to reminisce about the food in Egypt minus the hardships.
“We remember the fish, which we did eat in Egypt freely; the cucumbers, and the melons, and the leeks, and the onions, and the garlick: But now our soul is dried away: there is nothing at all, beside this manna, before our eyes.”
Sometimes, the devil can give us a selective memory. He can magnify the few problems we have above the many blessings we enjoy. He can make you remember some few pleasurable moments you had when you were in the world and mask all the hardships and pain you endured as an unbeliever. He can make you remember a few passionate moments you had with an ex and delete all the character flaws and mistreatment you suffered and make you forget what a wonderful spouse God has blessed you with. He can make you remember a few bad aspects of your job and make you forget how blessed you are to have this wonderful job. He can emphasize the poor grades of your children and make you forget some people even do not have.
Let us always remember all that the Lord has done and we will always praise Him.
