Text: Romans 12:1-2; Numbers 14:1-3 – Pastor Russ continues our series on lessons from the nation of Israel’s wanderings in the desert. The sixth and final “Killer D” that caused an entire generation of Israelites to die in the desert is DEFEATISM. Defeatism occurs when we believe we can’t do something and therefore, God is also unable to do it, so why bother reaching out to him. It leaves us feeling alienated and powerless. Pastor Russ reminds us that we need to be asking what God wants FOR us, not what God wants FROM us.
