God calls us to go into ‘Enemy Territory’ in faith that He will bring victory.
Pray The Word and Prepare for The Word
Psalm 27:1 - The LORD is my light and my salvation; whom shall I fear? the LORD is the strength of my life; of whom shall I be afraid?
Read - Numbers 13-15
40 days God spoke with Moses on the mountain. 40 days the ‘sent-out ones’ of Israel spied on the promised land. 40 days Jesus fasted.
Note that 10 of these men came back in fear and 2 (Joshua and Caleb) of them came back in faith. They saw the exact same thing but through very different lenses/perspectives. Do you look through a faith perspective when evaluating new things?
The people of Israel heard the fear and were ready to stone those of faith. God wasn’t going to have it. God looks for faith and faithfulness. Fear doesn’t get us into the promises of God. This generation will be held back from seeing all that God had promised. What things has fear held you back from in your own life?
Lord, I want to inherit all of your promises by faith. Keep me from fear!
Deeper understanding of the curse of the Israelites for their fear.
God called His people to learn His ways, experience His love and inherit a good land.
