I was thinking about the twelve spies who went in to check out the land for the Israelites (Numbers 13). Only Joshua and Caleb had faith that God would keep His promise and see them through. What the other ten spies said about the land was true: There were giants in the land and walled cities and many obstacles to overcome. The people allowed themselves to be scared to death - literally.
Caleb said, "Only do not rebel against the LORD. And do not fear the people of the
land, for they are bread for us. Their protection is removed from them,
and the LORD is with us; do not fear them.”
I can see that there are rough times ahead for us in America. But our enemies will be "bread" for us. Maybe they will be "carbs" that energize the Church to BE the Church.
Jesus said to them, “My food is to do the will of him who sent me and to accomplish his work."
Jesus has chosen us to be here during this time in history for a divine purpose. Let's not be consumed with fear, even though the trials are real and the disappointments great.
Jesus promised: "You did not choose me, but I chose you and appointed you to go and bear
fruit--fruit that will last. Then the Father will give you whatever you
ask in my name." John 15:16
