Human Shortsightedness
Exodus 5:22-23
And Moses returned to the LORD, and said, LORD, why have you so evil entreated this people? why is it that you have sent me?…

With every fresh movement of God's grace in the inner life, fresh difficulties and questions are raised. If we will bring these before the Lord, though it should be with the expression of trembling and grief, yet are they not to be regarded as signs of unbelief, but rather of the struggles and contests of faith; and the Lord is patient toward the doubtings of human shortsightedness.

(Otto Von Gerlach, D. D.)
