Faith

Focus on Him

The High Cost of Wavering Faith

In Numbers 13:25-33 the focus was on the obstacles rather than on the power of God. When we choose to trust the Lord despite the seeming impossibilities, we’ll discover He is bigger than any obstacle.

Wrong Voices

The High Cost of Wavering Faith

In Numbers 13:25-33, they chose to believe the bad report of some spies instead of trusting God. To walk obediently with the Lord, we need to guard against the influence of those who don’t recognize His greatness.

Responding to Our Culture

1 Peter 3;14b

Be willing to suffer or be misunderstood.

Since the world finds holiness, obedience, and reverence for God confusing or even offensive, taking a stand for righteousness may bring you criticism instead of praise.  Don’t fear the intimidation, you are blessed (Matthew 5:10).
