The Book of Numbers in the Bible, often perceived as a historical account filled with censuses and laws, can surprisingly be a rich source for building one's faith. This book, part of the Torah, chronicles the Israelites' journey through the wilderness, offering valuable lessons about trust, obedience, and God's faithfulness.
Numbers 23:19 (NLT) is written, "God is not a man, so he does not lie. He is not human, so he does not change his mind. Has he ever spoken and failed to act? Has he ever promised and not carried it through?"
This verse encapsulates a central theme of Numbers: God's unwavering faithfulness and reliability. This book teaches us to trust in God's timing and plan, reassuring us that He is always in control and that His purposes for us are good. In this way, Numbers is a testament to God’s enduring faithfulness to really strengthen our faith.
Remember, God is for us, not against us.
Father, thank You for Your faithfulness and your sovereignty. Amen.
Think through the promises of God in your life and pray into them.
