Faithlessness or Faithfulness

February 18th, 2012

RG AUDIO 021812Psalm 106:24-33

Forgetfulness leads to faithlessness. The people of Israel had short memories of God’s miracles, deliverance, and provision. They despised, grumbled, and disobeyed. They worshiped and sacrificed to lifeless gods. “They rebelled against the Spirit of God” (v. 33a). Moses and Aaron asked God for water for the thirsty people, and God said, “Speak to the rock before their eyes and it will pour out its water” (Numbers 20:8b).

As we examine our lives today, are they steeped in disbelief resulting in a critical spirit? When a “thank you” or “I’m praying for you” was appropriate, was the response “I don’t like the worship style” or “The salvation invitation was weak.” Leaders thrive on encouragement. They die from criticism and disobedience.

Moses, like other leaders, make the choice to remain faithful or receive the consequences. However, the people who follow the leader also make a choice to support or hinder.
