How you see God will affect your faith and how you receive from Him. Yet, there are people who see a God of the Old Testament, a God who judges His people, and who corrects and disciplines them. They think that God always wants to correct and discipline them. Let me tell you, the God of the Old Testament may have executed justice from time to time, but His heart is not in judgment.
You see, God loves mercy. His heart is full of mercy, not judgment. The Bible says that God is love. He finally gave up his share of the business to his partner.
As a result, he was without a job for a while. During that time, I had been preaching a series of messages on how our heavenly Father takes care of everything, and how all we need to do is trust Him.
The young man applied this message to his work life and prayed for a better job. He works from home and his hours are flexible. Not bad for someone who needed a new job! When you see God as a giving and gracious Father, it becomes easy to receive what you need from Him, whether it is a new job, healing or a financial breakthrough. Now, progress to step two: Move your hands.
No, God would not do that! He will save you straightaway! He will grab you and bring you to shore. Remember when Peter decided he wanted to walk out on the water to meet Jesus? He saved Peter immediately. You will then expect a miracle from a God of mercy, not some painful, lengthy lesson from a God of judgment. So how does God teach us?
He uses His Word to discipline or train us. If there is an area of your life that needs to be corrected, God will speak to your heart about it, perhaps through a sermon or even through your spouse! You may not like what you hear, but you need to know that He is doing it for your benefit because you are His son or daughter and He loves you. Hebrews —11 I want to challenge you: What kind of God do you really see?
Do you still see an angry God who likes to point out your mistakes and knock you on your head? The first picture is in Exodus The second one is in Numbers In both passages, Jesus is typified as a rock from which water flows to provide refreshment to the children of Israel when they were in the wilderness.
How do we know that the rock represents Jesus? In 1 Corinthians , Paul tells us that the rock was Christ: 4and all drank the same spiritual drink.
For they drank of that spiritual Rock that followed them, and that Rock was Christ. Jesus is the supplier of all our needs. The waters that flowed from the rock typify all that we need in life, be it health, prosperity, a better relationship with a loved one, a new job, a new house… Whatever we need flows from Jesus our Rock.
So when you see these two pictures of Christ in the two passages, and how God loves you so much that He gave His Son to be beaten so that you can be blessed, you will catch the heart of God towards you and receiving from Him then becomes easy. You will begin to expect God to meet your needs because you know the kind of God that He is. Jesus Is The Source Of Water That Quenches Our Thirst The first picture of Christ that I want you to see is in Exodus —6: 1Then all the congregation of the children of Israel set out on their journey from the Wilderness of Sin, according to the commandment of the Lord, and camped in Rephidim; but there was no water for the people to drink.
Why do you tempt the Lord? They are almost ready to stone me! Also take in your hand your rod with which you struck the river, and go.
The story speaks of Christ the Rock being smitten on the cross so that rivers of blessings can flow to us. In the story, the Israelites had just come out of Egypt and crossed the Red Sea. They travelled from place to place according to the commandment of the Lord and camped at a place called Rephidim. They were so angry with Moses that they wanted to stone him! This is the best action to take when we face challenges.
Earlier on, in Exodus 15, when the people arrived at Marah and found the water bitter, they grumbled against Moses.
Then, when they reached the Wilderness of Sin Exodus 16 , they grumbled against Moses again, accusing him of bringing them out into the desert to starve to death. Despite their grumbling, the Lord was gracious to them and He told Moses how to provide water for them.
Behold, I will stand before you there on the rock in Horeb; and you shall strike the rock, and water will come out of it, that the people may drink. Even when the Israelites grumbled earlier in Exodus 16 because they were hungry, do you know what God said to Moses? And it was no ordinary bread!
He gave them more than they had asked for. He gave them bread from heaven! The bread represents Jesus, who is the true bread from heaven.
He who comes to Me shall never hunger, and he who believes in Me shall never thirst. He gave them water and bread to meet their physical needs, but He also gave them the living water and the bread of life to meet their spiritual needs as well.
You may not be happy with God. You may be resisting His call on your life. But God still loves you despite your complaints, your disobedience or your wrong behaviour.
Be sure of this: It is His goodness, not His judgment, that will lead you to repentance. Has He lowered His standards of holiness? His blessings in your life are the result of His obedience, not your obedience! It is His beating, not your beating, that results in the blessings in your life! Well, we know that a rock had to be struck. When I first read it, it touched my heart.
The Lord told Moses to hit the rock. But who was standing there? The Lord Himself! It is a picture of Christ the Rock being smitten on the cross for our sins! The nails in the cross did not keep Him on the cross. It was His love for you that kept Him there! He stepped in and absorbed the blow for us. He was beaten so that we can be blessed! The water that flowed out of the rock represents the blessings we need, whether it is health, prosperity, protection or peace.
God has done His part, so just reach out and receive. The Bible says that all the fullness of the Godhead is in Jesus. Colossians He is full of grace and truth.
He was like the alabaster flask of very costly ointment that was broken so that the ointment of God could flow out for us to receive! Beloved, Jesus went to the cross so that you can be blessed. He laid down His life willingly for you. Of course not! If He did withhold these blessings from you, then these things would appear to be of more value than Jesus! And it is because of His obedience and His beating that rivers of blessing can now flow to us. There are no superfluous details in His Word!
We see in Matthew 26 and 27 that Jesus was also judged, condemned and crucified in the presence of the elders of Israel! Caiaphas the high priest interrogated Jesus in the company of the chief priests, scribes and elders. He also tore his high-priestly garment in front of Jesus, not knowing that he was fulfilling prophecy — that the old priesthood held by man was to give way to the heavenly priesthood of Jesus!
Later, when Jesus hung on the cross at Calvary, the elders of Israel were also there and they mocked Him. Another clue is the rod which Moses used to strike the rock. It was the Nile river in Egypt. Moses smote the Nile with his rod, turning its water into blood.
When Moses struck the Nile with that rod, the water was turned into blood. Blood here means death. The fish in the river died, the river stank and the Egyptians could not drink the water. It was bad news for them. And if God had continued the plague, they would have died too. In fact, from the very first supernatural must be in the manifestation of the rod, you can tell that his rod was meant to deliver curses.
When God told Moses from within the burning bush to throw his rod on the ground, Moses did so and the rod became a snake Exodus —3 , which is a symbol of the curse. Our trust must be in the finished work of Christ, not in our obedience or good works. We deserved the judgment. And we deserved the punishment. But Jesus took our place so that we can receive the blessings. That is the love of our Father!
It points us to the perfect work of the Son. Neither should our trust be in the environment we are in. What do I mean by this? Well, some people think that if only they were in a better school, a bigger company or a prospering country, they would be blessed. In the meantime, they murmur and complain. Sometimes, God will lead us to a place in which initially there seems to be no provision. If you read the story in Exodus carefully, you will find that it was the Lord who told Moses to bring the children of Israel to Rephidim.
And yet, even though they were still in the will of God, there was no water for them there. Did the Lord know that there was no water at Rephidim? Of course He did! But He wanted His people to trust Him and call upon Him. After all, He had cared for them and brought them this far. He had made the bitter waters of Marah sweet for them.
He had rained bread from heaven and given them quail meat to eat. And before all that, He had led them out of Egypt with great signs and wonders. But, like so many of us, the children of Israel were slow to learn to trust in God completely. Instead of trusting in the goodness of the Lord, they continued to complain. Look to the cross and rest in the finished work of Christ.
God may be delaying you because He sees a fatal accident or disaster up ahead! A sister in our church named Barbara loves to scuba dive. She usually scuba dives in Phuket between the months of December and January. She has done that at least four times now. In December , she and a colleague were planning another liveaboard scuba diving trip to the Similan Islands in the Andaman Sea northwest of Phuket.
She planned to be there between 22 and 27 December.
Today, she believes that God intervened for their good. He spared them a lot of trouble indeed. You see, had they gone ahead with their dive trip, they would have been sailing from the Similan Islands back to Patong Beach on Phuket island in Thailand on the morning of 26 December when the Asian tsunami struck!
Instead, while you are waiting for the manifestation of your blessing, bring out the timbrel, bring out the electric guitar and begin to sing a song to God. He is all-knowing and all- seeing. And He wants us to see beyond the physical too.
Some people believe that God heals today because they see people getting healed. These people are walking by sight, not by faith in the finished work of Christ! I was driving along the winding road to this mountain resort when, about a mile from the resort, I caught my first glimpse of the resort. And for the next mile, I caught sight of it about eight times.
It was amusing because each time after I spotted the resort, it disappeared again from view. One moment I saw it, the next moment it was gone. Every now and then, a cloud or a small hill would block my view of the resort. Now, was the resort jumping from one place to another?
Or was it moving around on wheels? It was always there, but my eyes told me that it was not always in the same location. So I could not base my judgment on my sight or my perspective! Put your faith in God who sees all things. His sight is better than yours! If you are facing difficulties and challenges, and what you see tells you that there is no hope, turn your eyes instead to God and His Word.
Put your faith in the finished work of the Son. Remember, it is by the smitten Rock that rivers of blessings are flowing to you. This couple wanted to have a child. This was their desire from the day they were married. In fact, during their premarital counselling, they told me that they wanted to have children.
Unfortunately, doctors informed them that they were both unable to produce a child for medical reasons. So for six years, both of them believed God for a child. But despite their efforts, year after year, they were unsuccessful. Six years is a long time! The devil must have told them all sorts of lies and negative messages. They could have easily given up in the third year or the fifth year or the sixth year. I can tell you confidently that God is faithful! Rachel conceived their first child in the seventh year!
That year, Rachel gave birth to their miracle child! It overflowed! Rachel was later able to give birth to another child… and then another one… and then another one! Today, they have four healthy kids. In fact, Rachel feels like a factory! Both of them are so fruitful that they really have to be careful or they could be expecting another child again!
The anointing of multiplication is so strong on them. God has richly blessed them. For six years, they sowed so many seeds of faith in God that it is reaping a harvest now. We all have areas of weakness. We all have areas of need. And as we exercise our faith in those areas of weakness and need, God rewards us and our faith is strengthened in those areas. I have found that the very areas in which you believe God to bless you, the very areas that once were your weaknesses, begin to become areas of strength in your life as you exercise faith in those areas.
This couple waited for six years! The point is that God will not forget your request. God is faithful to His promises. His Son paid for your blessings with His blood. And God is faithful to what His Son has done! That rock was Christ. The whole story is a beautiful picture of Jesus on the cross. When Jesus died, the river of blessings was unleashed for you. As long as you are a child of God, there is no reason to wonder if God wants to bless you.
The Bible says that God has blessed us with every spiritual blessing in the heavenly places in Christ. Ephesians It also says that He has given us everything we need for life and godliness, including His exceedingly great and precious promises. Why am I still out of a job?
Why am I still single? Your situation does not wipe out the power of the cross.
Just because there are dark clouds does not mean that the sun has stopped shining. No, the sun is always shining. Sometimes, you may not see it with your eyes, but it is still there behind the clouds.
Your faith can be compared to a window. The window allows light into the room.
It does not create the light. Now, people who have a lot of faith tend to have larger windows to let in more light. The light is always shining outside our windows, but we decide how much light to let in by the size of our windows.
The question to you is whether your window is big enough to let enough light in for your circumstances. Why is the river not gushing and the sun not shining brightly in their lives? The reason is that they are full of worry and fear. God gave me an illustration to help me understand this point.
He showed me a red rubber hose connected to a tap. The tap was turned on, but there was no water coming out at the other end of the hose. This was because the owner of the hose was gripping it so tightly that the water could not flow out. Now, can this person blame the water authority for not supplying the water? No, the water is still being supplied, but the man is not receiving the water because he is gripping the hose too tightly. Many of us are doing just that.
When we worry and fear, we are not trusting God. Instead, we are focusing on our circumstances rather than on the finished work of His Son. By doing that, we are gripping the supply hose too tightly and therefore not seeing the results.
Let go of the hose! Even if it means one finger at a time! Stop worrying. Stop grumbling. And start agreeing with God. Declare what He has said in His Word about you and your situation. Let me explain this point by outlining another story in the Old Testament.
In Numbers —12, the children of Israel, once again, stood against Moses in the desert of Zin because they had no water to drink. The passage teaches us what we are to do when we come to a place in which it seems like the river has dried up. We read previously in Exodus 17 of the first occasion when the Israelites complained and Moses responded by striking the rock.
The situations in Exodus 17 and Numbers 20 are similar in that the Israelites had the same need and they responded in the same way. Why have you brought up the assembly of the Lord into this wilderness, that we and our animals should die here? And why have you made us come up out of Egypt, to bring us to this evil place?
It is not a place of grain or figs or vines or pomegranates; nor is there any water to drink. Then, the glory of the Lord appeared to them and the Lord told Moses what to do.
Speak to the rock before their eyes, and it will yield its water; thus you shall bring water for them out of the rock, and give drink to the congregation and their animals.
Last time, he was told to strike the rock. This time, he was told to use his mouth. But watch what Moses did instead. Must we bring water for you out of this rock? Water gushed out, and the congregation and their animals drank. Numbers —11 Moses disobeyed God. He used his own rod of judgment and struck the rock not once, but twice.
That was how fed up he was with the people! But despite his disobedience, God still blessed the people. Water flowed from the rock in abundance, and the people and their animals drank.
When we read on in this passage, we find that the Lord told Moses that because of his sin, he would not enter the promised land along with the children of Israel. He was literally to be left behind! Poor Moses! He finally saw the promised land and he even saw his people entering it, but he himself could not go in. Depending on Jesus for every success in your life by Joseph Prince 4.
