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
God is going to ask you to do things, ON HIS TERMS, that will be humanly impossible. Why? Because He wants all the glory and for you not to take any credit for your success or victory. God asked Gideon to do the impossible. To take a tiny pitiful in number army and attack the huge Mideonite army.
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.
