“The Lord replied to Moses, `If her father had spit in her face, would she not have been in disgrace for seven days? Confine her outside the camp for seven days; after that she can be brought back.ʼ"
~Numbers 12:14
This is a short chapter simply explaining an incident that occurred within Miriam's heart and infecting Aaron's mind.
Miriam lost sight of what God called her to do and allowed herself to focus on what others were doing and judging by her own standards. She lost sight of the fact that the same God who rescued her from Egyptian slavery made provisions in His law for the foreigners that would live with the Israelites and worship God.
Her own importantance became her focus.
In all of this I can insert my name instead of Miriam's.
I have done this and lead others to speak against God's servants as well. This sin is truly against God. And while I hope the servant would forgive me and cry out to God in my behalf like Moses does, at Numbers 12:13 “So Moses cried out to the Lord, `Please, God, heal her!ʼ"
I know that when God shows me my sin and I confess it and turn from it He will forgive me.
For like Miriam and the other Israelites I am saved from slavery. Not slavery to a person, but slavery to sin. I have been set free. I no long have to continue to repeat these sins. I am a foreigner traveling through this life waiting for the day when God says “Well done, good and faithful servant.”
Not because of any thing I have done. But, because He sent His Son to pay my debt, so that after His preset time I can be brought into His camp.
Praise Him for His forgiveness and the washing of Jesus shed blood.
