October: Our month of BREAKTHROUGH
TOPIC: BELIEVE GOD’S REPORT!
So the ten spies began to spread falsehoods among the Israelites about the land they had explored. They said, “The land we explored is one that devours those who live there. All the people we saw there are very tall. We saw Nephilim there; we felt as small as ***************.
When ten of the twelve spies showed little faith in the unbalanced report they gave about the land, they were slandering and maligning what they believed God had promised them. They did not believe that God could help them, and the people as a whole were persuaded that it was not possible to take the land. As a result, the entire nation was made to wander in the desert for forty years, until almost the entire generation of men had died.
However, Joshua and Caleb were the two spies who believed that God would help them succeed. They were the only men from their generation permitted to go into the Promised Land after the time of wandering.
This account from Numbers 13 and 14 should be very familiar to all and sundry. But the question is: What do we learn from it? Concerning the problems of Israel Paul wrote: “Now all these things happened unto them for examples; and they are written for our admonition, upon whom the ends of the world are come” (1 Cor. 10:11). So what example is set for us in this account? What admonitions do we receive? What lessons do we learn from the twelve spies? Please stay tuned for more!
Prayer: Oh Lord, help me enjoy your promises for me in the land of the living in Jesus mighty name. Amen.
