Numbers‬ ‭13:26-33‬ ‭MSG‬‬:    “They presented themselves before Moses and Aaron and the whole congregation of the People of Israel in the Wilderness of Paran at Kadesh. They reported to the whole congregation and showed them the fruit of the land. Then they told the story of their trip: They presented themselves before Moses and Aaron and the whole congregation of the People of Israel in the Wilderness of Paran at Kadesh. They reported to the whole congregation and showed them the fruit of the land. Then they told the story of their trip: “We went to the land to which you sent us and, oh! It does flow with milk and honey! Just look at this fruit! The only thing is that the people who live there are fierce, their cities are huge and well fortified. Worse yet, we saw descendants of the giant Anak. Amalekites are spread out in the Negev; Hittites, Jebusites, and Amorites hold the hill country; and the Canaanites are established on the Mediterranean Sea and along the Jordan.”
Caleb interrupted, called for silence before Moses and said, “Let’s go up and take the land—now. We can do it.” But the others said, “We can’t attack those people; they’re way stronger than we are.” They spread scary rumors among the People of Israel. They said, “We scouted out the land from one end to the other—it’s a land that swallows people whole. Everybody we saw was huge. Why, we even saw the Nephilim giants (the Anak giants come from the Nephilim). Alongside them we felt like grasshoppers. And they looked down on us as if we were grasshoppers.””

How many times has this happened to you?  

How many times has God given you a promise through a vision or a word from someone that you know speaks His Word truthfully and accurately only to have people who surround you…some “Christians” no less tell you that it isn’t going to happen?  

How many times have these same people or the “world” instead of supporting you in the promise that God has given you instead try to instill fear in you or try to have you follow after a false or substitute promise created in their mind (or even a promise that THEY have been given) in instead of what God has told you?

My friends this happens all of the time (I know that it has for me) and is a tried and true tactic of satan because it quite often works for him to make the believer quit and/or distrust God.

This trick from satan will Not work if the individual truly trusts God to do what He has said He will do and is willing to look past the current day “Anak’s” (“giants” of trouble) that are standing in your way of God’s promise to you and look to God to keep His promise which He has ALWAYS on record to do.

This is for someone specific today!!!!

You have allowed God’s promise for your life to be dimmed to a point that you can no longer see the vision that He gave you so you think that “it’s not going to happen”.

Yet I have something that God put into my heart for you today dear friend so I write this to you that you only feel this way because you are wholly focused on the “Anak” that stands in the path on your road to the “promise” INSTEAD of the Holy God who can and will destroy that giant at a whim if you will only learn to look past them and look forward to Him.

He never promised you that the journey to the promise would be easy…only that it would be worth it and that the ultimate reward would be that the promise would be kept and He wanted me to remind you that all along He has kept up His part of the bargain as He always does.

He knows that you love Him dearly but still much like the Israelites in the desert you have taken your eyes off of Him through grumbling, lack of faith, pride, unbelief, and listening to others (also your flesh and the devil) instead of God (also…even to other “church” people who try to counsel you but don’t even have control of their own lives) and this…NOT HIM…is holding you from His promise for your life!

YET….DON’T you dare despair or be down that you have allied yourself to be distracted…condemnation is NOT what this message is about.

God has given me this message to you to show you what has transpired and how to get back on track….here it is!!

Repent to God right now where you sit, ask for forgiveness for allowing yourself to be distracted, and ask Him to instill and work a spirit like Caleb, son of Jeppunuh (and Joshua, son of Nun…but Caleb was my favorite because he was “old” and still strong like me 😂) into your heart and trust God to do what He has promised you WITH the understanding that it may or may not look in the end what YOU think it should look like but that it will be what God has promised for HIS purposes for your life.

He love YOU!!!  

He gave me this message specifically for someone to receive and you know who you are!

He also intends that others be inspired or re-inspired of the “promise” that He has given them so that they can be “un-distracted” by their “Anaks” and return back to their road and to their journey towards His promise for their lives and He has today used YOU and Me to do it!!! How awesome is that?!!!

Be blessed and lets in unison praise Jesus for His kept promises staying loyal to us even through our failing hearts!

Thank you Jesus for loving us and keeping your promise to us!! Amen!!
