Psalm 78: 10 – 11
The Word: Psalm 78: 10 -11 (KJV)
10 They kept not the covenant of God, and refused to walk in his law; 11 And forgat his works, and his wonders that he had shewed them.
Psalm 78: 20 – 22 (KJV)
20 Behold, he smote the rock, that the waters gushed out, and the streams overflowed;can he give bread also? can he provide flesh for his people? 21 Therefore the Lord heard this, and was wroth: so a fire was kindled against Jacob, and anger also came up against Israel; 22 Because they believed not in God, and trusted not in his salvation:

NOT FORGETTING HIS GOODNESS….
Why is it so easy to forget the past goodness and favour of God?
When new challenges arises, there is a tendency to forget former miracles.
Surely the God who gave deliverances in the past can give new breakthroughs….
In our text today, the Israelites remembered that God smote the rock and gave them water. That was a supernatural intervention. Only God could have done that. But now there is a need for bread, Can he give bread also? Is he still able to do the supernatural? Can he provide meat?
We are similar to the Israelites. The God who answered past prayers, The God who provided the desired job, can he cause fruitfulness? Can he cause to be pregnant? The God who provided food. Can he now resolve this difficult immigration issue? The God who gave us our child, Can he bring healing from this stubborn sickness?
Everyone is prone to doubt. But we can choose to trust and believe. Doubt pitches you against God. If anything faith drastically increases your possibility of speedy answers.
When tempted to doubt, we can remind ourselves of his past intervention. That can be the spring board to faith and faith is the final link to the desired breakthrough.
Prayer focus: Thank you Jesus…..
