In warefare, if the enemy is trying to blend in and invade opposition’s territory, what is the one thing that enemy does not want the opposition to realize too soon? The enemy doesn’t want to be exposed too soon. Then their opponent will have the upper hand.
My prayer for us, in this season, is for every enemy of God to be revealed. May the enemies in our lives be unmasked, prematurely, and exposed. May we, as God’s warriors, stand strong in the face of the enemy. The territory is already ours, we just have walk in faith and believe what God said.
Saints, there is nothing worse than missing your season out of fear.
The Message (MSG)
26-27 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:
27-29 “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.”
30 Caleb interrupted, called for silence before Moses and said, “Let’s go up and take the land—now. We can do it.”
31-33 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.”
