Two different view points

Two different view points

Twelve spies enter into the Promised Land, yet they come back with two different views. One view is they can take the land; the other view, filled with fear, is they can’t. The latter is the view of a grasshopper. Read on.
How do you view who you are? Are you a grasshopper or a child of God?
 30 Then Caleb silenced the people before Moses and said, “We should go up and take possession of the land, for we can certainly do it.”
 31 But the men who had gone up with him said, “We can’t attack those people; they are stronger than we are.” 32 And they spread among the Israelites a bad report about the land they had explored. They said, “The land we explored devours those living in it. All the people we saw there are of great size. 33 We saw the Nephilim there (the descendants of Anak come from the Nephilim). We seemed like grasshoppers in our own eyes, and we looked the same to them.” Numbers 13:30-35
Here is how Caleb viewed God and the situation:
8 If the LORD is pleased with us, he will lead us into that land, a land flowing with milk and honey, and will give it to us. 9 Only do not rebel against the LORD. And do not be afraid of the people of the land, because we will swallow them up. Their protection is gone, but the LORD is with us. Do not be afraid of them. Numbers 14:8-9
Caleb walked in the confidence of HIS Father God. You are a dearly beloved child of God, there is no battle or fight that is too large for God. God has promised that HE will never leave you or forsake you. 26 Then the word of the LORD came to Jeremiah: 27 “I am the LORD, the God of all mankind. Is anything too hard for me?” Jeremiah 32:26-27
For you did not receive a spirit that makes you a slave again to fear, but you received the Spirit of sonship (adopted child of God). And by him you cry, “Daddy, Father.” Romans 8:15
Are you a grasshopper or an adopted child of God? Know that your father loves you so much HE sent HIS ONLY Son to die for all of the world so you do not have to live in fear.
