OF THE 12 SPIES WHICH MOSES sent out to spy the promised land, only two came back with a good report,“Let us go at once and posses it; for we are well able to overcome it.” Num 13:30-33 The other 10 spies spoke evil concerning God’s promises and turned the heart of the people. Only these two men- Joshua and Caleb were permitted to enter the Promised land of all those thousands who came out of Egypt. That’s a very small percentage. Both Caleb and Joshua stood against the majority opinion of the spies. Basing their report on a firm commitment to God and full confidence in His promises to Israel, they refused to accept the overwhelming decision of God’s people- even at the risk of their own lives. What does this mean to you? This crucial event in Israel’s wilderness journey teaches us that we must not assume that the majority opinion is right. The faithful believer must always be willing to stand on God’s Word even if the majority is against you. “Certainly not! Indeed, let God be true but every man a liar. As it is written: “That You may be justified in Your words, And may overcome when You are judged.”” Romans‬ ‭3:4‬ ‭NKJV‬‬I can tell you there’s been many, many times people have said to me one thing and the Lord said another. Whose report will you believe? I get it. Everyone has an opinion, but there’s only One that really matters. In the natural, it may not make sense. It didn’t make any worldly sense that this small nation could overtake and conquer a land full of giants and warriors. Except… God had given them that specific land and promised they would overcome. Sometimes, you need to keep things in your heart. Others will not understand. Don’t cast your pearls before swine. They might just corrupt your mind with doubt. Stand firm on the Word of God, you will not be popular with men, but you will have right standing with the One who is faithful and true. His Word stands firm forever. His voice leads in the only clear and right path. It does not matter what anyone else thinks, live to please God alone. #runyourrace
