Giants and Grapes

Today I am assign to speak to the people that God has sent out and they have spied out their land of Canaan. You are one of the 12 spies and in your spirit and with your faith you have SEEN the land flowing with milk and honey. You have seen the big giants but as well you have seen the big grapes. In this season of your life you need to have made up your mind that no giant seen or unseen can STOP what God is doing in your life. You are Jesus redeemed and Holy Ghost filled and all of heaven and its angels have your back. There may people you love and you want them to support you and instead they oppose you. Just know that their validation and approval is not required and their support is not necessary. Ephesians 6:12 (AMP) For we are not wrestling with flesh and blood [contending only with physical opponents], but against the despotisms, against the powers, against [the master spirits who are] the world rulers of this present darkness, against the spirit forces of wickedness in the heavenly (supernatural) sphere. You know there is a YES in your future when the NO in your past keep trying to stop you. We are promised by Jesus in John 7:38 He who believes in Me [who cleaves to and trusts in and relies on Me] as the Scripture has said, From his innermost being shall flow [continuously] springs and rivers of living water. In this season of possession we must fill ourselves with the Word of God. We must believe in fullness the power and authority that is available to us believers in Jesus Christ. We must continue in the truth that HIS is the name above name. Don't let the fact that you can't see how He is going to do it nullify the fact that He has already DONE it.
In Numbers 13 v. 2 The Lord is telling Moses to send out 12 leaders to spy out the land of Canaan which He has already given them. I believe that God wanted them to NOT focus on the people but on the Promised Land. Later on starting at v. 27 they say that the land is indeed good, flowing with milk and honey. But more than the they are consumed with despair over the protection of the city and the strong people. Never mind the truth that they were just in the city unnoticed and undetected for 40 days and came away even with some fruit from the land. All but two of the men felt there was no way they could conquer the land. Those 2 men were Joshua and Caleb. They knew the truth that those people may have been giants but they were no match for God. God has some choice words for the people after they spend some time grumbling and complaining about the fact of once again having to face opposition. Numbers 14:30 has God saying to the people Surely none shall come into the land in which I swore to make you dwell, except Caleb son Jephunneh and Joshua son of Nun. We should be like Caleb with a different spirit knowing that God is WITH us and FOR us. We are assured that in Christ the promises of God are yea and amen. It is then that you don't focus on the little giants instead you see only the big grapes
Isn't it something that even after leaving Egypt and their time in the wilderness thus far the people still had to face giants in the land of Canaan. It goes back to a previous devotion about forgetting the former things in order to have the perception of the new. They were focused on the giant Pharaoh back in Egypt not FORGETTING still how God has delivered them from him. This morning my prayer is that we take notice of the grapes and not of the giants. Again like Caleb decree in your life today I should go up and take possession of the land, for I can certainly do it. Be Blessed, Rumania
