Complaining Will Keep You Out Of The Promise Land 

It was a long, unexpected trek through the wilderness, the Israelites were within spitting distance of the promised land. Twelve spies were chosen to scout out the land. They returned describing a land of green pastures and rich fruit and produce. But ten of them said that conquering the land would be impossible, for they had also seen giants and fortified cities. 

Scripture says the people whined and complained. But two of the spies, Caleb and Joshua, reminded everyone that God had promised that land to them, so God would make it theirs if they trusted Him. The people wouldn’t listen and instead talked of killing Joshua and Caleb. God decided that because of their grumbling and complaining, a different, more trusting generation would inherit the land. Forty years later, God helped Israel claim the land under their new leader, Joshua, whose name means “God saves”. He grew to experience God’s saving power in many ways for his people. 

Today, we may be afraid of what lies ahead. People and circumstances loom like giants, and problems seem impossible to solve. But we have a choice. We can stay afraid, or we can trust God to walk with us. We can do that because we belong to Yahshua, whose name means “God saves”. He was given that name because He would save His people from their sins and from the evil giants of life and circumstance that want to take us out. Do you trust the one who saves? 

‘The Lord is with us. Do not be afraid of them’ (Numbers 14:9).

Let’s Pray 

Yahweh, when we face enormous problems and scary opponents, Father help us to call on you, the one who saves. In Jesus’ name, Amen.
