Joshua And Caleb

Joshua And Caleb…

In the book of Numbers we learn about the twelve spies Moses sent out to scout the land of Canaan for 40 days. Two in particular, Joshua and Caleb, knew full well what they were up against. They never pretended that there weren’t giants in the land. In fact, Joshua would become the general to defeat those giants. Then what was it that separated Joshua and Caleb from the other ten spies who also saw the giants but brought back a bad report to the Israelites?

The difference was that though Joshua and Caleb saw the giants – they didn’t focus on them. Instead, they focused on the blessings, the promises, the faithfulness, and the power of God. And they were the ones who entered and apprehended all that God had promised.

So it is with you, it’s not that you don’t or won’t have problems in your life. John 16:33 says you will. It’s part of life. The key is – don’t focus or dwell on them. They’re there in your life to manifest the power, the victory, the faithfulness, and the triumph of God. They’re only giants. Set your focus instead on the giant power, the giant love, and the giant faithfulness of your God and you too will enter the land of blessing God has promised you.

Who through faith subdued kingdoms, wrought righteousness, obtained promises, stopped the mouths of lions. Hebrews 11:33

These things I have spoken to you, thatin Me you may have peace. In the world you will have tribulation; but be of good cheer, I have overcome the world. John 16:33

Live with the eyes of Joshua and Caleb. For every problem focus instead on the giant power, the giant love, and the giant faithfulness of your God.

Walk daily with God at your side!!

Love always,

Ed
