is it not enough for you that the God of Israel has separated you from the rest of the congregation of Israel, to bring you near to Himself, to do the service of the tabernacle of the Lord, and to stand before the congregation to minister to them; — Numbers 16:9
Is it not enough for you or too little for you? How do you feel about where God has you serving now? Do you believe you deserve more or better? Are you so righteous and holy that you should dictate where, when and how you should serve?
There have been many who have fallen because their ministry has become theirs and not God’s anymore. They have reached that righteousness level where dependence upon God is not priority. A bad place to be but all of us are capable of going there.
On a personal note: one of my greatest fears is that my head will swell thinking that the ministry given to me by God has anything to do with me. I express this to the Lord all the time and pray that He keeps me humble. (That’s another one of those prayers like asking for patience).
The warning is found in Numbers 16. If you are serving the Lord God I recommend you read this chapter.
Continually seeking Him,
