Live Like You Were Dying

"Then Moses raised his arm and struck the rock twice with his staff... But the Lord said to Moses and Aaron, 'Because you did not trust in Me enough to honor Me as holy in the sight of the Israelites, you will not bring this community into the land I give them.'" (Num. 20:11-12)
  1. Although God may seem unfair: OBEY HIM anyway.
    "When I have brought them into the land flowing with milk and honey . . . and when they eat their fill and thrive, they will turn to other gods and worship them, rejecting Me and breaking My covenant . . . I know what they are disposed to do, even before I bring them into the land I promised them on oath." (Deut. 31:20-21)

    "And all these, having gained approval through their faith, did not receive what was promised, because God had provided something better for us, so that apart from us they would not be made perfect." (Heb. 11:39-40)

    "And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love Him, who have been called according to His purpose." (Rom. 8:28)

  2. Don't let your FRUSTRATIONS become your FAILURE
    "Therefore, there is now no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus." (Rom. 8:1)

    "For a righteous man falls seven times, and rises again." (Prov. 24:16)

    • When you beat yourself up, you only put CHRIST down.
      "For you know that it was not with perishable things such as silver or gold that you were redeemed from the empty way of life handed down to you from your forefathers, but with the precious blood of Christ, a lamb without blemish or defect." (1 Pet. 1:18-19)

  3. God's love is for YOU; stop RESISTING it.
    "For God so loved THE WORLD that He gave His one and only Son, that whoever believes in Him shall not perish but have eternal life. For God did not send His Son . . . to condemn THE WORLD, but to save THE WORLD through Him." (John 3:16-17)
