*TOPIC*: TEN LILY-LIVERED SPIES
*TEXT*: NUMBERS 13:31...
"But the men that went up with him said, We be not able to go up against the people; for they are stronger than we" (Numbers 13:31).
"Too many of us are not living our dreams because we are living our fears," says Les Brown. When the Children of Israel left the bondage of Egypt, there was great joy in their hearts that eventually they were going to the Promised Land which flowed with milk and honey as promised by God. However, as they were faced with challenges, they feared, complained and thought of going back to Egypt. Moses had sent twelve men to spy out the land of Canaan. However, the report of ten of the spies put fear in the heart of the people and killed their zeal to go forward. They said, "we are not able... we were in their sight as grasshoppers" and it was unto them according to their confession. Sadly, they could not inherit the Promised Land. Their fear created a wall that shut them out forever but the other two spies with minority report of faith, Joshua and Caleb, conquered and entered the Promised Land. Today, we also must rise above fears and cowardice to achieve greatness. Strive to enter your heavenly Canaan Mother of the Bride Dresses 2020
