Numbers 13:17, 25, 27-31, 33
17 And Moses sent them to spy out the land of Canaan, . . .
25 And they returned from searching of the land after forty days.
27 And they told him, and said, We came unto the land whither thou sentest us, and surely it floweth with milk and honey; and this is the fruit of it.
28 Nevertheless the people be strong that dwell in the land, and the cities are walled, and very great: and moreover we saw the children of Anak there.
29 The Amalekites dwell in the land of the south: and the Hittites, and the Jebusites, and the Amorites, dwell in the mountains: and the Canaanites dwell by the sea, and by the coast of Jordan.
30 And Caleb stilled the people before Moses, and said, Let us go up at once, and possess it; for we are well able to overcome it.
31 But the men that went up with him said, We be not able to go up against the people; for they are stronger than we.
33 And there we saw the giants,
Yes, they saw the giants, but Caleb and Joshua saw God!
Those who doubt say, “We be not able to go up.”
Those who believe say, “Let us go up at once and possess it,
for we are well able.”
Giants stand for great difficulties;
and giants are stalking everywhere.
They are in our families, in our churches,
in our social life, in our own hearts;
and we must overcome them or they will eat us up,
as these men of old said of the giants of Canaan.
The men of faith said,
“They are bread for us; we will eat them up.”
In other words, “We will be stronger by overcoming them than if there had been no giants to overcome.”
. . . Let us have the spirit of faith that these men of faith had, and see God, and He will take care of the difficulties. Selected.
See God . . .Today
