THE LENS OF FAITH
Numbers 13:30-33 (30) – Caleb interrupted, called for silence before Moses and said, “Let’s go up and take the land—now. We can do it.” (MSG)
We often go on journeys that feel like the road is full of uncertainties, and we don’t know what to expect. Sometimes, we view our challenges as insurmountable mountains, which blinds us from seeing the picture of where God is taking us. This was the experience of the Israelites when God told Moses to send some men to explore Canaan land. After 40 days, the men who went to spy the land returned and explained that though the land flows with milk and honey, the citizens there are giants, and they cannot withstand them.
When God speaks, you can be sure that it is settled. Before God gave Moses the instructions, He had already given Israel the land of Canaan. The people only needed to emulate Caleb to possess the city. As seen in our Bible reading, by faith, Caleb saw the positives when others were self-defeated.
Beloved, to activate God’s promises for our lives, we need to walk by faith and not by sight. Faith gives divine confidence, and the absence of faith means that we depend on ourselves. The reason you fear the future might be because you are making estimations based on your own abilities. But “by strength shall no man prevail” (1 Samuel 2:9). Until you hand your journey over to God and put on the lens of faith, you may continue to drown in your fears.
Hymn: My Faith Looks Up to Thee — Ray Palmer (1830)
1. Father, in my current situation, help me trust in You.
1. Irrespective of what I am going through, I choose joy. I see greater glory and new heights! (Prophesy)
2. My dream life! Receive the baptism of fire and be transformed from a satanic battleground to a source of divine revelation.
3. Father, please give me the grace, wisdom, understanding and discipline to nurture my relationship with You and man.
