Sermons on Numbers
A few sound words of commitment to God do not prove a heart commitment to God. Balaam’s life and actions demonstrate that if we set our heart on sinful pursuits, we cannot avoid enticing others to sin.
Our sins are killing us. We must look to Jesus in faith in order to live! This daily consecration to the Lord places us in a position to receive God’s gracious provision.
The very same hardships that God designs to grow our faith can also destroy our faith when we grow frustrated. Frustration places us in great spiritual danger because it destroys our faith in God and tempts us into unbelief. But our unbelief dishonors God and disconnects us from His divine blessing.
The most dangerous place to take a stand is in the soil of rebellion.
God never makes a promise that He fails to fulfill. But without a strong faith, we will miss God’s reward.
How quickly our heart can turn from praise and thanksgiving to grumbling and complaining! God always takes notice because our murmuring robs Him of the worship that He deserves.

When faced with the holiness of God our sinful minds can lure us into self-righteousness, believing that God needs our help to accomplish His plans and will upon the earth.
