But Caleb tried to quiet the people as they stood before Moses. “Let’s go at once to take the land,” he said. “We can certainly conquer it!” But the other men who had explored the land with him disagreed. “We can’t go up against them! They are stronger than we are!”… “The land we traveled through and explored will devour anyone who goes to live there. All the people we saw were huge. We even saw giants there, the descendants of Anak. Next to them, we felt like grasshoppers, and that’s what they thought, too!” Numbers 13:30‭-‬33 NLT

The difference between the conquerors and the defeated/losers is their perception and the difference between the faithful and the fearful is in the picture they see and their reliance.

If all you see in every situation is obstacles, challenges, difficulties, and giants you will always look like the grasshopper. If all you always rely on is your ability, your limited resources, and your experience you will always feel weak, feeble, and incapable of doing any exploit.

On the contrary, if you can look away from yourself: your personal ability, limited resources, and skills; look away from what you can see, feel, or hear no matter how intimidating, terrible and worse the situation might look or appear. And if you will be able to see HIM who is invisible, powerful, faithful, strong, and resourceful to help you fulfill what He has promised. You will surely be strengthened in your inner man and be courageous to advance without further delay to confront the enemies and possess your promised inheritance in Christ.

May the LORD God this day increase your knowledge of Him so that you may have the faith and the courage not only to believe in Him that He can do the impossible but also to be courageous enough to silence the cowards and fearful ones around you who may want to deny you access into your glorious inheritance in Christ Jesus. Good morning.

Your brother,
