It makes no difference how daunting a challenge may appear before you; you’re up to the task. See the possibility of coming out victoriously. Don’t Give Up; Don’t Give In!
To the Bible Numbers 14:7-9 TLB
…“It is a wonderful country ahead, and the Lord loves us. He will bring us safely into the land and give it to us …do not fear the people of the land. For they are but bread for us to it”’
When Moses sent twelve men into Canaan to spy out the land, ten of them came back with a despairing feedback. They talked about how difficult and impossible it would be for them to invade Canaan and take over the land. They were so negative in their report that the assembly of the children of Israel became utterly hopeless and demoralised (Numbers 13:31-14:1). God was displeased with them because they failed to use His Word as the basis for their perception.
However, the other two men–Joshua and Caleb–had a different view of the situation. They saw the possibility of conquering Canaan and taking possession of the land as God had spoken. They said to the congregation, “…don’t be afraid of the people of the land. They are only helpless prey to us! They have no protection, but the Lord is with us!” (Numbers 14:7 NLT). Forty years later, these two men were among the young generation of Israelites who entered the promised land, while those ten and other unbelieving folks like them died in the wilderness (Numbers 14:26-38).
It matters how you perceive challenges and respond when faced with daunting situations. You must train yourself to have the “I-can-do” mentality. No matter how difficult the assignment before you is, let God’s Word build your faith and inspire you; become possibility-conscious. Like Apostle Paul, say to yourself, “I can do all things through Christ which strengthens me” (Philippians 4:13). Make this your everyday confession, and you’ll be amazed how things will begin to work in your favour.
2 Corinthians 3:5, Philippians 4:13
Dear heavenly Father, thank you for your Word that works mightily in me, giving me the mindset of a victor. I refuse to be moved by what I see or feel; rather, I’m inspired by the Word of God to live by faith. My life, therefore, is an unending stream of the miraculous, in Jesus’ Name. Amen.
