To know the nature of God, what He likes and what makes Him angry, we need to read the life of Israelites.
In that, today it’s again time to know how to stop thinking negative, stop talking negative because God hates it when He really has a great plan and promise for us.
God knows the land that He promised to Israelite, but He wants to reveal them their heart, and wants to know what they think of it. So He commanded Moses to spend spies from every tribe to go to the promised land and check it.
Look what they brought when they came back,
Numbers 13 : 23
Then they came to the valley of Eshcol and from there cut down a branch with a single cluster of grapes; and they carried it on a pole between two men,with some of the pomegranates and the figs.
Such giant fruits, they brought that is the blessing that is right before their eye, evidence of what God has promised is right before their eyes,
Even for us today the evidence of God’s promise is right before our eyes Jesus on the cross for us, God has given Himself for us to suffer such terrible agony and shame, will He not give everything along with Jesus?
JESUS IS THE EVIDENCE OF OUR PROMISES.
But with the evidence in hand they had evil report in their heart and mouth, look what they said ,
Numbers 13: 26 b – 29
26b …they brought back word to them and to all the congregation and showed them the fruit of the land. 27 Thus they told him, and said, “We went in to the land where you sent us; and it certainly does flow with milk and honey, and this is its fruit. 28 “Nevertheless, the people who live in the land are strong, and the cities are fortified and very large; and moreover, we saw the descendants of Anak there. 29 “Amalek is living in the land of the Negev and the Hittites and the Jebusites and the Amorites are living in the hill country, and the Canaanites are living by the sea and by the side of the Jordan.”
They said all that was scary, they said all that was negative, all the blocks they were talking, even today the big giant like sicknesses, financial problems, our loved ones addictions, our properties and valuables cheated by people, and blocks of our life, future all that are right in our hearts and our mouth.
But Caleb quieted them before they blabber their fears further , before their poison spread , saying this,
Numbers 13: 30
30 Then Caleb quieted the people before Moses and said, “We should by all means go up and take possession of it, for we will surely overcome it.
Can we be the Caleb of our family, and our ministry, who before anyone talks negative stops them, and say Jesus is with us, nothing can harm us, all things works for our good even the bad things God can work good out of it for us, no weapon formed against us shall prosper, He is a god of restoration, He can get us back 7 folds, 100 folds what we lost, He is a good father knows to give good gifts to His children who gives His Holy spirit without limit for victory for those who asks.
But still they were talking negative and evil report, check if you are the one giving such reports,
Numbers 13: 31 – 33
31 But the men who had gone up with him said, “We are not able to go up against the people, for they are too strong for us.” 32 So they gave out to the sons of Israel a bad report of the land which they had spied out, saying, “The land through which we have gone, in spying it out, is a land that devours its inhabitants; and all the people whom we saw in it are men of great size. 33 “There also we saw the Nephilim (the sons of Anak are part of the Nephilim); and we became like grasshoppers in our own sight, and so we were in their sight.”
“We are nothing before this problem “, “we can’t do it, this will not happen”, all such negative, remove it from your heart and words, say “I can do all things through Christ”, “God is fighting for me”, “God is healing me”,”I am not alone”.
Let’s not be like them who never entered their promised land . Sad end for evil and bad report.
Let’s not talk for evil, let’s talk for God all positive, think positive, for Jesus is our evidence of all that God has promised .
