Let’s take a quick look this morning at a very powerful place in scripture that talks about our sight.
Numbers 13: 25 – 33, GNB
25 After exploring the land for forty days, the spies returned
26 to Moses, Aaron, and the whole community of Israel at Kadesh in the wilderness of Paran. They reported what they had seen and showed them the fruit they had brought.
27 They told Moses, “We explored the land and found it to be rich and fertile; and here is some of its fruit.
28 But the people who live there are powerful, and their cities are very large and well fortified. Even worse, we saw the descendants of the giants there.
29 Amalekites live in the southern part of the land; Hittites, Jebusites, and Amorites live in the hill country; and Canaanites live by the Mediterranean Sea and along the Jordan River.”
30 Caleb silenced the people who were complaining against Moses, and said, “We should attack now and take the land; we are strong enough to conquer it.”
31 But the men who had gone with Caleb said, “No, we are not strong enough to attack them; the people there are more powerful than we are.”
32 So they spread a false report among the Israelites about the land they had explored. They said, “That land doesn’t even produce enough to feed the people who live there. Everyone we saw was very tall,
33 and we even saw giants there, the descendants of Anak. We felt as small as grasshoppers, and that is how we must have looked to them.”
God had promised the children of Israel that He’ll take them out of the land of slavery into a land of abundance, a land flowing with milk and honey.
This is the same way God has given us very great and precious promises in Christ Jesus, but the fact is, regardless of these great and precious promises that has been given to us, challenges lie ahead.
David had to face a Goliath before he could get to the palace.
Joseph had to pass through a lot; betrayal from his brothers, tempted by the wife of Potiphar, he went through prison before he also got to the palace.
I’d like you to answer these few questions in your heart before we continue this morning.
• How do you see yourself?
• How do you see your challenges?
These two questions are very powerful and will determine what happens to those challenges.
Do you see your challenges as insurmountable?
Do you see yourself as grasshoppers and those challenges as giants?
Get into God’s word and meditate on it, see yourself through the lens of God’s word and not through the eyes of that situation or challenge you may be facing.
Get scriptures particular to that situation and meditate on them, this will feed your faith and starve that challenge.
The more we say negative words the more those challenges seem bigger, because they are fed by negative words, so it’s very important that we consciously put God’s word in our mouths and give utterance to that which we want to see.
Let God’s word dwell in you richly, it’ll renew your mind so that you’ll be able to see your challenges the way God sees them.
See yourself victorious.
See yourself with that dream job
See yourself happily married with children.
See your cars.
Don’t let what happens in the natural limit your seeing ability. Don’t let what is in your pocket limit your seeing capacity.
God does not need your resources to take you to your destination, he needs your faith.
It’s my prayer that God gives us more understanding.
