The Power of a Godly Perspective

Numbers 13:1-2 NKJ “And the Lord spoke to Moses, saying, “Send men to spy out the land of Canaan, which I am giving to the children of Israel; from each tribe of their fathers you shall send a man, everyone a leader among them.”


How do you view yourself and your adversities? God wants you to live a victorious life than you could ever imagine. But it will all depend on your mentality. In Numbers 13, Moses sent twelve spies over to the Promised Land, and even though they all saw the same things, they came back with very different perspectives. Joshua and Caleb returned optimistic and excited for what was to come but the other ten spies came back and complained (Numbers 13:26-33). They did not see the grapes, milk, and honey in the land. All they saw were the giants. They saw themselves as victims, but Joshua and Caleb saw themselves as victors. Joshua and Caleb were optimistic and excited about the Promised Land. They said, “Certainly, we can conquer it!” The other ten spies saw obstacles, but Joshua and Caleb saw opportunities. The other ten spies had a slave mentality, but Joshua and Caleb had a sonship mentality. The other ten spies were comparing themselves to the giants, not comparing their God to the giants. God did not create you to be intimidated by adversity. He said you are more than a conqueror! Your God is bigger than any giant.  God uses every circumstance we go through in life to show us His strength and power. God created you to live an abundant life filled with joy and peace. It is not His plan for you to walk around stressed and worried all the time. He wants you to enjoy your life. God has some promises of purpose, favor, salvation, healing, prosperity, and blessing waiting for you. But you must see every situation in your life from God’s perspective every day. See every day as the day that the Lord has made, and choose to rejoice and be glad in it!
