God Putting God to the Test
Passage: Exodus 17:1-7, 1 Corinthians 10:1-6, 9-11
I. GOD TESTING ISRAEL
You won’t know God is all you need until He’s all you have.
II. ISRAEL TESTING GOD
A grumble can become a trial – with God in the dock.
III. GOD TESTING GOD
The Rock was Christ (1 Cor 10:4).
- Where in your life, right now, are you tempted to ask the question, “Is the Lord among us or not?”
- How (when?) does that question become an accusation? What does it mean to test God? Why does the Bible warn against it?
- How can you be sure that God is for you? Who does the rod come down on in Exodus 17? What comfort and assurance does that offer you in hard times?
