Numbers 20:12–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.”
God told Moses and Aaron to speak to a rock to bring fresh water, but they struck the rock with a staff instead. It doesn’t seem like a big difference, but to God, it was the difference between obedience and disobedience, between trusting in Him and not trusting in Him. Do we obey God’s commands completely? Or are we lazy with the details? God is concerned with the specifics because that shows our trust in Him.
Father, I will obey You completely, even in the little things and seemingly insignificant details because everything is significant to You. Thank You for giving me direction so that I can obey and show that I trust in You in every area of my life.
