“To Be Free or Not to be Free…?”
Numbers 14:1-2, Numbers 14:9
I love the word freedom. Many people love the word and the concept. But with freedom there is a price and that’s where the grind happens. That’s where freedom loses some of its appeal. Israel wanted to be free and God certainly wanted them free, but there were some roadblocks in their way:
- _______________________ v.1
*Walking in the wilderness helps you forget Egypt!
* You can be discouraged in your deliverance if you are unwilling to exercise faith and take responsibility!
- _______________________ v. 2
* Change and freedom come by taking responsibility for the past and refusing to drag Egypt into the present.
* Deliverance only gives opportunity for freedom–deliverance is not in itself freedom.
