1 SPY LESSON from 12 SPIES (or Facts Vs Faith)

Last night I made a note to check up the story of Caleb again. While praying God had just reminded me that my story was similar to his. In a new land… on the cusp of discovery…. just within your dreams completion and then a GIANT set-back pun intended!
12 people went up into the land to “check it out” . 10 of them came back with their facts and stats, (the problems and what they saw with the eyes) but only 2 came back with their faiths and promises (the potentials and what they remember God telling them He would do).
(See Deuteronomy 1 :23-29)
They were scared, they all must have been! You would have been too! You put all of your life savings into this project only to find out that there is a glitch when you get there. You ask your family to give up all the security and safety they’ve ever known to follow you on a dream you’re so sure God gave you only to get there and find out you may have been dumped!
If you’ve ever been there you wouldn’t judge the 10, if you haven’t well it’s easier to thump down on the gavel saying GUILTY isn’t it?
For all these 10 are guilty of we have to admit AT LEAST they followed their dreams. They took the risk, exposed themselves to ridicule, took the picture, sang the song on stage, wrote the book and sent it out, dared to bring the dream out of the closet.
No that is not their crime, it could be ours – those of us who seat on the sidelines and critic. Who have never ever even tried yet are so quick to tell others “No it’ll never work.” Do the 12 a favor…..hush up!!!
We’re tired of all the negative words, spoken in the name of honesty! We need something to be said for bravery, for courage, for the risk takers!!
Heres the thing about the 2 though they saw all that and more! They saw the promise as received already. They saw through the facts to the GOD-FACTOR.
You see FAITH DOESN’T DENY THE FACTS BUT ISN’T FROZEN BY IT. IT ACTS REGARDLESS BECAUSE ITS WORKING OFF A SUPERIOR PARADIGM – GOD CAN AND HE WILL!
So Caleb spoke out, (See Numbers 13:30) he didn’t deny the giant problem. He let them know THEY WERE ABLE to overcome.
Don’t get stuck with Giant problems, remember His promise and get going!
