When Faith Fails…

Tissot_The_Grapes_of_CanaanTHIS IS SO GREAT!!!!

IT IS EVERYTHING THAT GOD HAS PROMISED!!!!

YOU SHOULD SEE THE BLESSING!!!!

IT IS EVERYTHING WE HOPED FOR AND MORE!!!!

GOD HAS DONE A GREAT THING!!!!

but there is no way we could enjoy it…we have no answers but to turn and run…

What?!?!?!?!?

What just happened there? How did the thinking above move from rejoicing in what God had done and how great he was to a faithless, scared, defeated mentality?

The answer stands staring back at us in the mirror, doesn’t it? This is a plain old, common experience of our lives as Christians. We are constantly exhorted by the Scripture to believe in God, to trust God, to have faith in God. And yet the very presence of these constant exhortations is a reminder that we need exhortation. We regularly stumble about in faithlessness.

1 group of 12 spies entered the land of Canaan. 2 groups, one of ten and the other of two, exit Canaan. Ten were faithless and led the people to feel the same. Two trusted God.

Let’s remind our people this week of God’s promises and his trustworthiness. And let’s remind them of the One, our Savior, who never fails.
