Do Not Fear

Re: Verse reading–Numbers 13:1-2, 17-33; Joshua 14:6-10 (day four)
God had given a specific command to Moses…send out spies to check out the land ‘which I am going to give to the sons of Israel’.  The spies were not to evaluate the strength of the inhabitants or the difficulty of the task.  Only Caleb and Joshua understood their assignment.  They trusted in what the Lord had said.  Verse 14:9 says, “Their protection has been removed from them,”…Caleb recognized that his sovereign God was able to provide.  He trusted God to be faithful to His promise.  Are there any giants in your life?  Are you struggling to see God’s provision for the need in your life?  God is the majority wherever He is.  Where the line is drawn, the battle will ensue.  God will often allow us to experience need in order to learn trust.  Pressure conforms us into His image.  Like Caleb and Joshua, we must not rebel against God and fear man…God is with us!
