Numbers 14:9 Only rebel not ye against the LORD, neither fear ye the people of the land; for they are bread for us: their defence is departed from them, and the LORD is with us: fear them not.
Satan and self would like for us to focus on ourselves and what we can do or on our enemies and what they appear to be. Caleb challenges the people to return and think of how great their God is. If they do not step out and take the promise land they will be in rebellion.
It is not a matter of wanting something for themselves. It is doing what He has told them to do! If we are under orders to do something then we need not fear others. We should have so much respect for God Himself that others can’t make the radar.
We need to realize that since He sent us and He has promised that they have already lost the battle before we even begin to fight.
We are to realize that He is with us.
I am reminded right now about how much I have been promised and how much I have allowed circumstances and wrong thinking to affect me. It is time to focus. It is time to know that God is with us and will do great things.
Let’s step forward in faith and expect great things from God while we attempt great things!
