“But with whom was he grieved forty years? was it not with them that had sinned, whose carcases fell in the wilderness? And to whom sware he that they should not enter into his rest, but to them that believed not? So we see that they could not enter in because of unbelief.” (Hebrews 3:17-19)
Today’s Morsel: One of the biggest roadblocks to spiritual growth, maturity, and perfection is unbelief. One of the things about unbelief is it binds you and holds you back from getting what God has promised you. Scripture says, Abraham believed God and it was counted to him for righteousness (Genesis 15:6, Romans 4:3). He put his faith and trust in God and he received the promise. It’s amazing how we will trust everybody but God. Our friends say they will come and pick us up, and we believe them. Somebody tells us that someone was talking about us, and we believe them. But when it comes to God’s word, and someone tells us that God loves us and cares for us, we don’t believe it. Your pastor tells you to tithe and God will bless you, and you don’t believe him. Roadblocks to spiritual growth and maturity. The children of Israel, that came out of Egypt, did not enter the promised land because of unbelief. The warning is clear. Either we believe God’s word or miss the promise.
Sing: Let Jesus lead you! Let Jesus lead you! Let Jesus lead you all the way, all the way from earth to glory, let Jesus lead you all the way.
