(Ps. 78:41, 42-48)
Do not go back and give it to God who has begotten us a second time by bringing salvation through Jesus Christ.
I. THE GREAT MISTAKE THEY MADE
They went back.
They gave it to God.
They forgot the works and wonders that God had done among their founding fathers.
We must not forget the works of God and the miracles performed by Him from the Old to New in His faithful servants.
II. WHAT TO DO
To have a good relationship with God.
Make the right decision to remain faithful to God and to His Covenant and Promises to your end without giving Him a limit to everything.
i. Believe in God (Mark 11:22).
ii. Do not doubt in your heart (Mark 11:23).
iii. Believe you have received in the power of Jesus Christ (Matt. 7: 8a, 19:26). What you don't want is gone, it's already gone. What you want is in your hands.
iv. Rejoice if you find a miracle today.
Rejoice if you do not receive it now (Phil. 4: 4, 11-13)
v. Realize that God's delay in answering your prayers does not mean that you are dismissing them.
Sometimes God has a great purpose in His mind to reflect His glory (John 9: 3, 11: 4, 2Cor. 12: 7-10).
"KNOW THAT IF YOU HAVE GIVEN YOURSELF COMPLETELY" GOD CANNOT FORGET YOU AND FORGET YOU, HE LOVES YOU SO MUCH THAT HE DRAWS YOU IN THE HANDS OF HIS HANDS (Isa. 49: 15-16, Ps. 121: 1-2).
