If the Lord is pleased with us, he will lead us into that land, a land flowing with milk and honey, and will give it to us. —Numbers 14:8 NIV
Twelve Israelites went into the Promised Land to survey it and bring back intelligence to the people. All twelve agreed that it was good land, but ten of the men said it would be impossible for the Israelites to conquer it. Only two—Joshua and Caleb—said that God would enable the Israelites to take the land.
Eyes of fear focus on difficulties and underestimate your abilities.
Eyes of faith look to God and see his sufficiency.
Which kind of eyes do you have?
Maybe God is asking you to take a step of faith in some areas on your journey to improve your health. Perhaps he wants you to try the ten-day detox or the forty-day meal plan, or maybe he’s asking you to try a new kind of movement or a new mindset, and instead it feels like you’re facing powerful enemies.
But if it really is God asking you to take that step of faith, he will provide the strength to overcome. All you need to do is provide the faith to take the step. When you do that, he promises to show up with strength, with love, with encouragement to overcome every obstacle.
Food for Thought: With God’s help, you can have the courage to step out in faith toward all the goals you long to move toward.
