“That night all the members of the community raised their voices and wept aloud.” Numbers 14:1 NIV
Why did the people of Israel weep?
Because 10 of the 12 spies that Moses sent into the promised land came back saying it was impossible. And the people believed them instead of believing God.
They mourned as if they were already defeated when in truth, they had not even begun.
Be careful about how you use your imagination. You can feed your worst fears or you can feed God’s best hopes for your life.
This nation of former slaves looked at the promised land in fear because it was going to be difficult.
They wanted the promise but only if God was going to make it easy for them.
Stepping into your promised land isn’t going to be easy.
You are going to have to fight for it, face the giants and trust God to take you to a new level of trust in Him.
God has brought you this far and He will take you all the way in.
Getting there is going to be one step of faith after another.
It will always be a walk of faith.
You can trust God to give you what you will need, when you will need it to do what He has called you to do.
Wipe your tears, lace up your shoes and start walking toward your promised land.
I will join you.
