RESPONDING IN FAITH TO GOD’S WORD!
There we saw the giants (the descendants of Anak came from the giants); and we were like grasshoppers in our own sight, and so we were in their sight (Numbers 13:33).
Every Christian should learn to respond positively to God’s Word in life. The Word of God is your weapon against life’s challenges and obstacles. Whenever you fail to respond to God’s Word, you become a victim to life’s circumstances and Satan. The Bible tells us in the opening text that we saw the giants; and we were like grasshoppers in our own sight, and so we were in their sight. What a faithless and evil report in life? Of course, every Christian should endeavor to take note of the fact that God indeed wants him to always respond in faith to His Word in life. Hence whenever a Christian learns to respond positively to God’s Word in life by faith, he absolutely receives divine grace for spiritual growth in life forever.
When you read the entire chapter in the book of Numbers 14, you will discover the consequences of the evil report brought by the ten spies and the havoc it created in the camp of the Israelites in life. The reason was simply because they failed to respond in faith to God’s Word in life. While the ten spies were speaking from the human perspective, Joshua and Caleb were speaking from God’s perspective by faith in life (Numbers 14:6-9). Therefore, whoever operates in faithlessness is eternally bound to crash in life. A life that will respond positively to God’s Word by faith is absolutely a life that will be richly blessed by God in life forever.
A Christian should learn to respond to issues of life’s challenges and situations by faith through the Word of God in life. That is the reason why the Bible says in 2 Corinthians 4:18, “While we do not look at the things which are seen, but at the things which are not seen. For the things which are seen are temporary, but the things which are not seen are eternal.” In fact, whenever a Christian learns to respond to God’s Word by faith, he definitely experiences the supernatural in life. Unless you respond to God’s Word by faith, you cannot be victorious in life. Therefore, a life that fails to respond to God’s Word by faith is absolutely a life that can never move forward in life forever.
Daily Tip: A Christian should learn to always respond to God’s Word by faith in order to overcome life’s challenges and obstacles in life forever. Shalom!
Golden Text: But without faith it is impossible to please Him, for he who comes to God must believe that He is, and that He is a rewarder of those who diligently seek Him (Hebrews 11:6).
