Numbers 13:30-33

Take Possession of Your Land


Numbers 13:30-33 then Caleb quieted the people before Moses and said we should by all means go up and take possession of it for we will surely overcome it but the men who had gone up with him said we’re not able to go up against the people for they’re too strong for us for they gave out to the sons of Israel a bad report of the land which they had spied out, saying the land through which we have gone in spying it out is a land that devours its inhabitants and all the people whom we saw in it are men of great size there we also saw the Nephilim the sons of Anak are part of the Nephilim and we became like grasshoppers in our own sight and we were in their sight this is really interesting Shabbat Shalom what land has God given you to possess today what land is God giving you to possess in this next week God has given everyone of us a land to possess maybe it’s a marriage maybe it’s a business maybe it’s your children maybe it’s a school maybe it’s a city maybe it’s a nation God gives everyone of us a land that we’re to conquer we’re to possess not by our strength not because we want to but it’s His desire, His goal His plan and He wants to use us to accomplish it what is the land you’re to take possession of the very interesting thing is twelve spies went in to look at the land that God had told them to take possession of you may remember that God gave a promise to Israel He said when you go into the land you will meet these giant people the Nephilim the sons of Anak the guys that are 3 – 4 meters tall 10 feet tall with 6 fingers 6 toes supernatural powers incredible guys like the superheroes that you see in the movies these days something like that maybe it scared 10 of these spies they came back and said we better not go up against them because we’re like grasshoppers to them and they see us as grasshoppers we’ll be devoured, we’ll be destroyed but two of them Joshua and Caleb saw it completely differently and they said no we should by all means go up what did Joshua and Caleb see that the other 10 did not see they saw what God had said they saw the promise of God being activated and fulfilled in their lives that they realized our job is not to go up there and find some big guys that can defeat them our job is to show up and watch our God who promised He would go like a consuming fire before us and destroy our enemies our job is to go and watch Him do that and just collect miracles what was different it’s really interesting to me 12 men went into the land they all saw the same thing they heard the same thing they experienced the same thing they ate the same food they went to the same places had the same experiences and came back with totally different conclusions the reason was two of them just processed pardon me 10 of them just processed what they received with their own natural carnal minds did not see in the spirit they walked in the… we’ve talked about the fact we have to walk in spirit and truth we want to see in the supernatural and the natural so 10 only saw the truth side there’s big guys in there the land devours it’s inhabitants we’re like grasshoppers to us and they see us like grasshoppers we’ll get wiped out that was the so called truth side the spirit side was the other guys saw in the spirit no, no, no, no, no God is a consuming fire He will go before us everyday we need daily spirit and truth what’s very interesting it says that these 10 spies gave to the sons of Israel a bad report one translation says an evil report what was evil, they just said what they saw, said what they heard just told it like it was and what it was, it was only the truth side without any spirit it wasn’t perceiving what God had said perceiving what God was going to do it was only trusting in themselves and their own natural resources and God called that an evil report I don’t want to give an evil report of any circumstance I want to look at a circumstance and I want to discern spirit and truth both sides I want to see what I see in the natural and yes we need to understand natural principles on planet earth but also we need to understand what God is saying there are more with us than there are with them that’s what Elijah told his prophet when the prophet couldn’t see what was going on in the spirit so I pray for you today that you would see with the spirit of Joshua and Caleb that you would see not only the truth side of your circumstance in your life but you would see the spirit side regarding your health regarding your finaces your family, your business your employment every area where God has called you to walk there’s a truth side you may hear what the doctor says but there’s a spirit side you may hear what the banker says but there’s a spirit side you may hear what your brother in law and other people around you say and it might be true what they’re saying just like what the 10 spies said, wasn’t a lie it was true but you need to hear what God says that’s the spirit side and you will come to an entirely different conclusion I pray for you today that you would walk in spirit and truth both sides and that you would have that spirit of Joshua and Caleb to possess the land that God has called you to possess Amen
