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 faith and fear is in the picture they see and their reliance.

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

On the contrary, if you are able to look away from yourself: your personal ability, 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 and resourceful to help you fulfill what He has promised. You will surely be strengthen in your inner man and 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 in order that you may have the faith and the courage not only to believe in Him who is able to 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 and do have a glorious worship experience today.
