“Then Caleb quieted the people before Moses, and said, ‘Let us go up at once and take possession, for we are well able to overcome it.’ But the men who had gone up with him said, ‘We are not able to go up against the people, for they are stronger than we’” (Numbers 13:30-31, NKJV).
Each of us is represented in one of these two camps. We are either fully convinced of our status as co-heirs with Christ (Romans 8:17) who is to inherit all nations (Psalm 2:8) complete with the authority to take the land, or we are those who are all too aware of the giants. We may doubt the call on our lives and our ability to take possession. God’s covenant promise is that when we obey His voice, we will be above and not beneath, the head and not the tail (Deuteronomy 28:13).
We need to see ourselves as those who can change our communities. We must understand that it is our purpose and call to do so and that we have the power and authority to accomplish it because of Christ in us. When we push back the darkness through faith-filled prayer and righteous living, we will impact, overtake, and change our nation.
We are called to be a people of faith. The first step to taking our country for Jesus is believing it is possible. We need to take our eyes off the giants, the doubts and the fears and declare as Caleb did, “We are well able to overcome it!
“If the Lord delights in us, then He will bring us into this land and give it to us, a land which flows with milk and honey. Only do not rebel against the Lord, nor fear the people of the land, for they are our bread; their protection has departed from them, and the Lord is with us. Do not fear them” (Numbers 14:8-9, NKJV).
Questions: How do we take our eyes off the giants in our life? What is your giant right now?
