To Believe, or Not To Believe

Numbers 14:1-15:41

Are you like me right now just wanting to shake these children of Israel and say…

Hey, don’t you remember how God sustained you in Egypt for 400 years?

Don’t you remember how He brought you out with His mighty hand?  And when you left, in your hands was the wealth of Egypt?

Don’t you remember how God split the sea and you walked on dry ground to safety while your enemy was swallowed up in that same sea?

Every single day you look up and see God directing your steps in the form of a cloud and every night a pillar of fire.

Every morning when you arise God is sustaining you will manna.

The very clothes on your bodies are not wearing out.

God has kept you, is keeping you, and will continue to keep you!!

But we are reading that they have come to the boarder of their Promised Land and they are not looking to God to deliver this land into their hands, they are looking at themselves to do it. (Numbers 13:31)

As I pondered this this morning, after all their eyes have seen God do, I wondered how in the world could they not have the faith to believe God would to this too.  Especially since he has been promising this land to them for hundreds of years.

I know in my own life, I have no problem believing God can provide a Red Sea Miracle, I have the problem of believing I am worthy of it.  

God is so good that maybe, just maybe, the children of Israel did not doubt if God could, maybe they doubted if He would do it for them.

Truth is, none of us are worthy of God’s grace, mercy, blessing, and favor.

The Children of Israel were not worthy either.

But God does not provide us miracles based on our goodness, but based on HIS.

So if you are wondering today if God can make a way for you, the answer is, Yes, He can.

If you are wondering today if God will make a way, remember, He wants this blessing for you more than you want it for yourself.

Unbelief is what caused the Children of Israel to not enter in their Promised Land and will cause us to not enter in too.

Therefore, I’m believing God!!

Let's believe together.
