October: Our month of BREAKTHROUGH.
TOPIC: BELIEVE GOD’S REPORT!
The inspired writer of Hebrews admonished; “And without faith it is impossible to please God, because anyone who comes to him must believe that he exists and that he rewards those who earnestly seek him. Hebrews 11:6 (NIV)
“Whose report will we believe? We shall believe the report of the Lord!” A phrase from a song written by Ron Kenoly from the 90’s, reminds me in that moment of decision, we have a place to stand and choices to be made.
In Numbers 13, the LORD said to Moses, “Send men to explore Canaan, which I’m giving to the Israelites. Send one leader from each of their ancestors’ tribes.”
Although the spies brought back a cluster of grapes so large that it took two men to carry it (Numbers 13:23), only two of the twelve brought back a good report of the land.
This is what they reported to Moses: “We went to the land where you sent us. It really is a land flowing with milk and honey. Here’s some of its fruit. But the people who live there are strong and the cities have walls and are very large. We even saw the descendants of Anak there”. In contrast, Caleb told the people to be quiet and listen to Moses. Caleb said, “Let’s go now and take possession of the land. We should be more than able to conquer it.” But the men who had gone with him said, “We can’t attack those people! They’re too strong for us!” Please stay tuned for more.
Prayer: I shall believe only the report of the Lord Who made the heavens and the earth in Jesus mighty name. Amen.
