Today do not harden your heart. Believe in God’s goodness.

11/2009

We saw that unbelief in the goodness of God provoked Him to anger and caused Him to swear in His wrath they would not enter the land.  In Psalm 95:11 and in Hebrews 3:11 when referring to this incident, the Bible says “I swore in my wrath they will not enter my REST.”  Note how God changed the word Land to Rest. Why ? Because to the physical seed their inheritance is the LAND but to believers in Jesus Christ who are the seed of Abraham by faith their inheritance is REST.

Now knowing this, what is the believer in Jesus Christ to do?  Today the believer must not rebel.  Rebelling is hardening one’s heart and refusing the belief in the goodness of God!  Believe in God’s goodness towards you!

Hbr 3:7-8 That is why the Holy Spirit says, “Today you must listen to his voice. Don’t harden your hearts against him as Israel did when they rebelled, when they tested God’s patience in the wilderness.
