Moments with Maker Devotional Week #2
Take Your Land!
And if the LORD is pleased with us, he will bring us safely into that land and give it to us. It is a rich land flowing with milk and honey, and he will give it to us! – Numbers 14:8
Are you struggling with taking the land that God has already promised to you?
Caleb and Joshua in the Bible were the only two scouts who believed they could take the land that was promised to them by their God. The other ten spies saw the giants in the promise land and they allowed their fears to overcome them.
They didn’t want to fight for their promise land. They even wanted to stone Caleb and Joshua for standing up against everyone else’s doubtful speech.
The Israelites were living in fear, and wanted to go back to Egypt– which they hated.
What has God promised to you that you are afraid of fighting for?
Here’s the thing: the Israelites had to go and take it, but God was with them.
When you face trials or unexpected bumps in the road of life. Are you crippled with fear just like the ten spies and Israelites were?
Or are you going to be a Caleb or a Joshua and go take your land and fight for what God has promised you.
- Is it a job change?
- Steps to restore your marriage?
- Deepening your relationship with the Lord?
- Is God calling you to walk in blind faith with Him?
If so, don’t let fear paralyze you. Renounce out loud the spirit of fear in the name of Jesus and quote scriptures concerning bravery and obedience. Perfect love drives out fear, friend and God’s love is perfect!
Now, go and take your land!
Walk into the Promise Land that God has for you!
