Key Verse: So they gave out to the sons of Israel a bad report of the land which they had spied out, saying, “The land through which we have gone, in spying it out, is a land that devours its inhabitants…” Numbers 13:32
Obviously there was no man-eating fish in the lake. But fear of the unknown or what seems intimidating, often causes us to imagine a reality that isn’t real. Frightened, we often forget what is true. We can forget that God is with us. We can forget the promises of His Word. We can forget that the power of the Holy Spirit is greater than the “reality” of the world. And as we begin to share our worries with others around us, we spread fear instead of hope.
Prayer: Lord Jesus, give me the eyes to see what You see and the courage to lean into those things that intimidate me. I know You are with me and I trust that Your power is greater than anything the world might throw at me. Amen.
