“And He gave them their request, but sent leanness into their soul.” –verse 15

The Israelites in the desert complained, moaned, groaned, and were generally displeased with life. They begged of God for things other than what He already provided. Their grumbling and griping accompanied their daily experience. He gave them what they asked, but the price for it, it seems, was a “leanness” in their soul.

Where am I focused today? Am I focused on the miraculous provision already given? Or am I begging for more, different, “better”?

Lord, let me not forget that nothing is worth creating a lean soul inside me. May I ever seek Your face that my soul may be robust with praises to You.
