Good morning lovelies!
I was reading in Numbers this morning & I ran across a familiar story.
In Numbers 13, 12 scouts were sent to explore Canaan, 1 from each tribe. Now Canaan is basically Israel’s land, just not yet, but God promised them Canaan so it’s theirs. **Side note: God NEVER breaks his promises!
Now around verse 25, the scouts came back with a report – Canaan was AWESOME! It was AMAZING, I tell ya! Bountiful & flowing with milk & honey…
BUT… There’re Giants. They’re powerful too. They began to doubt.
How many of us doubt God because of our giants? God has promised if we seek Him first, everything will be added, but our giants get in the way. Our giants can be sexual immorality, doubt, worry, lies – ANYTHING not of God. Our giants are indeed powerful! There’s no arguing there, but how many of us will be like Caleb?
“But Caleb tried to quiet the people as they stood before Moses. “Let’s go at once to take the land,” he said. “We can certainly conquer it!””
Numbers 13:30 NLT
I think Caleb realized that as God’s chosen, we are MORE than conquerors! I believe that he realize that with God on our side, anything is possible! I’m confident that he realized that that yes, we’re weak, but in our weakness then are we strong! Caleb trusted God & His promise. He didn’t let giants get in the way of that promise. We can learn a lot from him. **I want you to also note that he tried to quiet the people & become a peacemaker ;)**
Or will we be doubtful & afraid like the rest?
“But the other men who had explored the land with him disagreed. “We can’t go up against them! They are stronger than we are!””
Numbers 13:31 NLT
Notice how the ones who don’t trust God are the greater number? **Christians, we will always be outnumbered! Remember that!** Again, there is no arguing that our giants are stronger than we are, but we have got to realize who’s side we’re on & who’s got our back!! God will give us strength to defeat the giants if we JUST TRUST HIM!
Are you ready to battle your giant?
- Read & meditate on the Word
- Talk to a Christian, that’s why we’re here 🙂
- Attend a bible-believing (& doing) congregation ASAP & get active
Do this daily!
Heaven (our Canaan) is too important, too great, too awesome to miss for a couple of giants God already has the victory over!
Be encouraged 💕
