His way... (Numbers 20:10-12)

"Moses said to them, "Listen, you rebels, must we bring you water out of this rock?" Then Moses raised his arm and struck the rock twice with his staff. Water gushed out, and the community and their livestock drank. "But the Lord said to Moses and Aaron, "Because you did not trust in me enough to honor me as holy in the sight of the Israelites, you will not bring this community into the land I give them." (Numbers 20:10-12)

1. The Pulpit is not the place to express our personal frustration. It is the place to do the service of God.

2. God has called us to serve Him His way. If He has told us to speak to the rock, we must do just that and nothing else.

3. When our people can't see through the problem because of the dark, God wants us to light a candle and glorify and honor His holy Name. For, there is no darkness that has not been conquered by His light.
