Lesson; Mind the people you walk with in your life
Reference: Numbers 13. 25-33 (Better you read the whole chapter)
The story of the spies Moses sent to inspect the land God had given the Children of Israel is an interesting story! The group went to the same location, but gave reports with different attitudes
But the people who live there are powerful… We can’t attack those people; they are stronger than we are. And they spread among the Israelites a bad report about the land they had explored. They said, “The land we explored devours those living in it. All the people we saw are of great size. “We saw the Nephilim) we seemed like grasshoppers in our own eyes and we looked the same to them.
This was a completely threatening story. It scared the children of Israel that they developed a desire of going back to Egypt. The group that reported this, seems did not have faith. They did NOT believe in the one true God a miracle worker. Their hearts were very strong. But, among the same group, were two men;
Caleb, and Joshua seem to have seen something different. They saw milk and honey, and also yes strong men who they could over come and their report is;
“Then Caleb silenced the people before Moses and said, “We should go up and take possession of the land, for we can certainly do it.” Wow! What a report!! Caleb’s report is full of power, hope, and faith. He believes it’s possible. Although he saw great men in the land, they are nothing to him. He knows God will enable them.
This is a great lesson to you and I. Who are you walking with today? You must have friends around you with whom you share a vision and mission if you are to reach your destiny. Check among your friends those with whom you share a dream they are the people you need along your way to encourage you.
Moses, too could have got scared of the report of the other men he sent to explore the land. But thank God he had faithful men like Joshua and Caleb who fully believed in God, and were determined to reach their promised land.
The faith of Caleb and Joshua enabled them to reach the promised land. The lack of faith of the other team members paid way to their failures and death in the desert. This is a lesson to you and I
Which team are you walking with today?
What is the faith of that person you are walking with today?
Will that person man or woman enable you or help you reach your destiny?
God does not like fearful, faithless men.
