Good Morning Warrior!
Hallelujah, It’s The Lord’s Day!
Word for the Day :
(Numbers 12 & 13)
“Resting In God’s Promises”
Text: Numbers 13:2
“Send men to spy out the land of Canaan, which I am giving to the children of Israel; from each tribe of their fathers you shall send a man, every one a leader among them.”
“Resting in God’s Promises,” is on our menu for Breakfast this morning.
One of the great challenges to the Warrior’s Faith is Resting in God’s Promises; depending upon God to Do What He Says He Will be Do!
Moses Rested on God’s Promise that God had Called him personally to lead Israel out of Egypt’s slavery into the Promised Land of Canaan.(Exod.3:10). That’s why he was “the most humble man on earth.”(Numbers 12:3). He was humbled by walking in God’s greatness, signs and wonders. Moses Rested in God’s Promises. God Promised to “Give the Promised Land to Israel,” in our text; and Moses, Joshua, and Caleb Rested in the Promise of God; but the other 10 leaders did not.
“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 13:31).
Refusal to Rest in God’s Promises brought the judgement of leprosy upon Miriam, (Num.12:10); and these 10 unbelieving rebels all died in the wilderness.
The Warrior learns to Rest in the Promises of God by Testing and Proving them on the Battlefield of Faith! This learning process is work and labor; choosing to rely upon God’s Way instead of Our Way! (Heb.4:9-10)
That’s what Faith is! Resting upon God’s Promise not our efforts.
There will always be giants in the land,
Fear, Doubt, and Unbelief; like a Christmas lawn decoration of Frosty the Snowman - full of air! The ‘pin’ of Faith will dissolve the big snowman, and you will walk all over that giant!
As a teenager David dropped Goliath with a stone thrown from his sling of Faith!
Caleb. saw the giants of Canaan as “Frosty”as full of air, they were easy to overcome.(v.30).
Listen up Warrior! There is No Weapon of Fear, Doubt, or Unbelief that comes against you that can prosper when you Standfast and Rest Upon the Promises of God! Ooooh Rah!
“No weapon formed against you shall prosper,
And every tongue which rises against you in judgment
You shall condemn.
This is the heritage of the servants of the LORD,
And their righteousness is from Me,”
Says the LORD.”(Isa.54:17)
Stand your ground Warrior! Rest in God’s Promise To Do What He Says He Will Do, and HONOR Him with your Faith and Trust In Him! Ooooh Rah!
Warrior at your side,
