Numbers 12:1–2, MSG
Miriam and Aaron talked against Moses behind his back because of his Cushite wife...They said, "is it only through Moses that GOD speaks? Doesn't he also speak through us?" GOD overheard their talk.
Moses' sister and brother, Miriam and Aaron, began to talk against Moses because he married a woman from a different nationality. They were trying to make him look bad and questioning his leadership. Notice that when people are talking about you, God hears it. He's your defender, and He's never lost a case. It goes on to say this angered the Lord, and He dealt with them because they had spoken against the reputation of one of His children.
God takes it seriously when someone tries to discredit you, belittle you, or make you look bad. You don' have to get upset. God is listening. He knows how to change their mind. Sometimes He'll cause them to be quiet; other times He'll let them keep talking and just keep promoting you. The more they talk, the higher you'll go. They think they're hurting you, but they're doing you a favor. God is paying you back by taking you to new levels.
Prayer for Today
"Father, thank You that You are so aware of and intimately involved with what is going on in my life. Thank You that You haven't left me on my own, but You step in and defend me when I need it. I am going to relax and stay at peace. In Jesus' Name, Amen."
