The first time Moses had to strike the rock, the second time they had to ask. It doesn’t seem like a big difference, as it had to be struck for the first time, and the end result is the same: it became water for the people. Yet this was a big difference before God so much that God did not allow Moses and Aaron into the land of promise.
The key to our relationship with God is obedience. This is how we can get closer to Him, not through our emotions. Yet many choose the emotional path, so there is more praise in the place of obedience, and more prayer in the place of deeds. There is confusion in Christianity because they try to understand God through emotions.
Signs and Wonders
We will see from God’s Word how God gives His signs and wonders. Even in our daily lives, we experience the miracles of God, and occasionally as a great testimony in healing from a deadly disease, in the form of escaping hopeless situations. It is part of our lives, already those who have a personal relationship with the Lord in reality.
His Word is eternal
Although many believe that the Father has changed since Jesus' death and resurrection. But if God had really changed, He can change anytime again, and then our faith would not be rock solid. But the good news is that God does not change, although for many it is bad news and judgment at the same time.
