(It's impossible to serve God without the holy spirit)

(There will be doubts when you serve the Lord)

(Numbers 11:10-17) (In these scriptures we will read about how Moses felt like the Lord had left him alone with all his people and every one was complaining and he was about to give up but the Lord said you are not alone) And Moses heard the people weeping throughout their families, every man at the door of his tent; and the anger of the Lord blazed hotly, and in the eyes of Moses it was evil. (11) Have I conceived all this people? Have I brought them forth, that You should say to me, Carry them in your bosom, as a nursing father carries the sucking child, to the land which You swore to their fathers [to give them]? (12) Have I conceived all this people? Have I brought them forth, that You should say to me, Carry them in your bosom, as a nursing father carries the sucking child, to the land which You swore to their fathers [to give them]? (13) Where should I get meat to give to all these people? For they weep before me and say, Give us meat, that we may eat. (14) I am not able to carry all these people alone, because the burden is too heavy for me. (15) And if this is the way You deal with me, kill me, I pray You, at once, and be granting me a favor and let me not see my wretchedness [in the failure of all my efforts]. (16) And I will come down and talk with you there; and I will take of the Spirit which is upon you and will put It upon them; and they shall bear the burden of the people with you, so that you may not have to bear it yourself alone. (17) And I will come down and talk with you there; and I will take of the Spirit which is upon you and will put It upon them; and they shall bear the burden of the people with you, so that you may not have to bear it yourself alone.

(Sometimes we do not wait on God's Plans)

(Psalm 106:13-23) But they hastily forgot His works; they did not [earnestly] wait for His plans [to develop] regarding them,(14) But lusted exceedingly in the wilderness and tempted and tried to restrain God [with their insistent desires] in the desert.(15) And He gave them their request, but sent leanness into their souls and [thinned their numbers by] disease and death. (16) They envied Moses also in the camp, and Aaron [the high priest], the holy one of the Lord.(17) Therefore the earth opened and swallowed up Dathan and closed over the company of Abiram. (18) And a fire broke out in their company; the flame burned up the wicked. (19) They made a calf in Horeb and worshiped a molten image.(20) Thus they exchanged Him Who was their Glory for the image of an ox that eats grass [they traded their Honor for the image of a calf]! (21) They forgot God their Savior, Who had done such great things in Egypt, (22) Wonders and miracles in the land of Ham, dreadful and awesome things at the Red Sea. (23)Therefore He said He would destroy them. [And He would have done so] had not Moses, His chosen one, stepped into the breach before Him to turn away His threatening wrath.

(Don't ever give words of defeat like these people)

(Nehemiah 4:10) And [the leaders of] Judah said, The strength of the burden bearers is weakening, and there is much rubbish; we are not able to work on the wall.

(The Promise of God is not just for Moses it is also intended for us)

(Joshua 1:5-6) No man shall be able to stand before you all the days of your life. As I was with Moses, so I will be with you; I will not fail you or forsake you. (6) Be strong (confident) and of good courage, for you shall cause this people to inherit the land which I swore to their fathers to give them.

(The prosperity of the wicked sometimes drags us down)

(Psalm 73:1-3) TRULY GOD is [only] good to Israel, even to those who are upright and pure in heart. (2) But as for me, my feet were almost gone, my steps had well-nigh slipped. (3)For I was envious of the foolish and arrogant when I saw the prosperity of the wicked.

{(Isaiah 40:31) But those who wait for the Lord [who expect, look for, and hope in Him] shall change and renew their strength and power; they shall lift their wings and mount up [close to God] as eagles [mount up to the sun]; they shall run and not be weary, they shall walk and not faint or become tired.}

{(Galatians 6:8-10) For he who sows to his own flesh (lower nature, sensuality) will from the flesh reap decay and ruin and destruction, but he who sows to the Spirit will from the Spirit reap eternal life. (9) And let us not lose heart and grow weary and faint in acting nobly and doing right, for in due time and at the appointed season we shall reap, if we do not loosen and relax our courage and faint. (10)So then, as occasion and opportunity open up to us, let us do good [morally] to all people [not only being useful or profitable to them, but also doing what is for their spiritual good and advantage]. Be mindful to be a blessing, especially to those of the household of faith [those who belong to God's family with you, the believers].

God Bless You!
