Have you ever been frustrated?  The obvious answer is YES!  How did you deal with that frustration?  Probably not according to the will of God right!  I mean you knew what the right thing to do was but in that moment of frustration you lashed out and lost control. No worries it happens to the best of them.  Moses whose testimony is that he is the most humble and meekest man to walk the face of the earth lost control.  Yahweh gave him specific instructions as it related to the rock but in a moment of frustration he struck the rock twice and disobeyed Yahweh.  So you see you are not the first person to be frustrated but let's look at a benefit and consequence of frustration.

  1. A moment of frustration can cause you to reevaluate your situation and in some cases avoid going down a path that leads to more frustration.
  2. A moment of frustration can cause you to miss out on a blessing that God had in store for you (i.e. Moses).
So this emotion that we all have experienced, will experienced, or are experiencing can be both a blessing and curse it is up to you decide which one!  Let us learn a lesson from this great man of God and respond to our frustrations properly.

Scripture Reference: Numbers 20
