Where Do You Stand?


Surely none of the men that came up out of Egypt, from twenty years old and upward, shall see the land which I sware unto Abraham, unto Isaac, and unto Jacob; because they have not wholly followed me: Save Caleb the son of Jephunneh the Kenezite, and Joshua the son of Nun: for they have wholly followed the LORD.
Numbers 32:11-12 KJV
Out of all of the people who left Egypt, only two entered the promised land.  Only two received the promise.  Only two saw the reward of faith and faithfulness.

Only two.

Two.

The rest of the Israelites who left Egypt tested God, angered God, doubted God.

Our lives and walk with God will regularly test our faith.  Doubt calls out to us in the midst of trials.  Where do we stand when it really matters?  We have been delivered.  We know Who gets the credit for that.  Why then do we falter in our faith?

That same faltering.  The double-mindedness is what still causes so many of God's people to miss their destiny.  They were all supposed to cross the Jordan.  They were all supposed to make it!

Where do you stand?

Do you plan on making it over the Jordan?  Or are you content to die in the wilderness?

I am hoping you said 'no' to my second question.  So I'll just encourage you.  You can do it.  You can trust God.  You can exercise your faith when it matters.  That same faith can defeat doubt and fear.



Do it.

Believe.

Trust.

Enter your promised land.

Step in.

Go!
