“because they had no faith in God, because they didn’t trust his saving power.”
Psalm 78.22 CEB
Israel failed for lack of faith. They tested the Lord. In spite of all he did for them, they rebelled against him. So they were punished for their failure to trust.
We easily see Israel’s failure, but not so much in ourselves. How does our lack of trust in God’s saving power demonstrate itself? Worry? Anxiety? Impatience? Insistence in solving our own problems?
