Sermon Title: “A Crisis of Belief”
THE BIG IDEA: When you have a crisis of belief, don’t take matters into your own hands.
Sermon Passage: Numbers 20:1-13
Sermon Series: Experiencing God
Text to Ponder: Palms 35:22 “O LORD, You have seen this; be not silent. Do not be far from me, O LORD.” NIV84
Focus: Adapted from Psalms 56 & 18:49 (NIV84)
Be merciful to me, O God, for men hotly pursue me; all day long they press their attack. My slanderers pursue me all day long; many are attacking me in their pride.
When I am afraid, I will trust in You In God, whose word I praise in God I trust I will not be afraid.
What can mortal man do to me? Record my lament; list my tears on Your scroll—are they not in Your record? [Are not my enemies turned away?]
By this I will know that God is for me. In God, whose word I praise, in the LORD, whose word I praise—in God I trust I will not be afraid.
Therefore I will praise You among the nations, O LORD; I will sing praises to Your name.
