Devotion: Facing Opposition
When you do God’s will you WILL face opposition. The people of Judah faced opposition just by saying no to a group of people. Don’t be surprised, most likely opposition will come but what are you going to do when it happens?
Trusting in Numbers is when we trust in things or people more than God. David wanted to do a census of his fighting men instead of trusting God who had given him numerous victorious on the battle field. God longs for us to trust him over anything this world can offer and at the end of the day he is more trust worthy than anything we could put our trust in.
1 Chronicles 21
It is so much easier to trust what man says or trust in man over trusting God. It is hard but the Lord still wants us to trust in Him when he says do something. Coming from the story of Deborah and Barak, in the book of Judges.
When God asks us to do something it is going to require faith and trust in Him. What are we going to do walk away or move forward with God? The Israelites had a lack of Faith in God and couldn’t believe that God could help them conquer the promise land. God decided to raise up a generation that would believe him and trust that when He said he would do it there was not doubt about it. Story of Moses sending out the 10 spies in to the Promised Land.
