Caleb told the people near Moses to be quiet. Then Caleb said, “We should go up and take that land for ourselves. We can easily take that land.” But the men who had gone with him said, “We cannot fight those people! They are much stronger than we are.” So those men gave a report that discouraged the people. They said, “The land we saw is full of strong people. They are strong enough to easily defeat anyone who goes there. We saw the giant Nephilim people there! (The descendants of Anak come from the Nephilim.) We felt like little grasshoppers. Yes, we were like grasshoppers to them!”
(Numbers 13:30-33 ERV)
“So those men gave a report that discouraged the people.”
What kind of report do you give?
What report do you believe?
Their eyes didn’t deceive them, but their belief defeated them.
With our own eyes, we may see things that are a reality and could easily discourage us if we let it.
It is what we choose to believe and put our faith in that makes all the difference in this world!
Our reality is always what we believe! Caleb saw victory because of what he believed. The others saw defeat because of what they believed.
My son, pay attention to my words and be willing to learn; Open your ears to my sayings. Do not let them escape from your sight; Keep them in the center of your heart. For they are life to those who find them And healing and health to all their flesh. Watch over your heart with all diligence, For from it flow the springs of life.
(Proverbs 4:20-23 AMP)
Don’t let the wellspring of life become tainted with fear! Guard your heart with faith! Build your faith with His words! The heart is thought life, and it can steer us into defeat or victory!
Above all, be careful what you think because your thoughts control your life.
(Proverbs 4:23 ERV)
