Numbers 14:9 – Only rebel not ye against the Lord, neither fear ye the people of the land; for they are bread for us: their defence is departed from them, and the Lord is with us: fear them not.

The Lord has given us all a promise of Canaan. Whether or not we will have a taste of it now or must wait until heaven, the land of milk and honey is promised to all who are His. Too often though, His flock resembles fearful, doubtful Israelites more than ransomed, righteous saints. A group too afraid to claim God’s promises and doubtful enough to long for a life of bondage.

Brothers and sisters, trust God and take Him at His word. The things he has promised to His children will surely come to pass, we need only believe. When obstacles block your path to Canaan in the coming days and weeks, adopt the mindset of God’s servant Joshua: “The Lord is with us. Fear… not.”
