What Do You See? 2
“The Lord is my light and my salvation; whom shall I fear? The Lord is the stronghold of my life; of whom shall I be afraid?” Psalm 27:1
It is the feeling of hopelessness and helplessness that causes people to see themselves as unworthy of God’s grace. When we are lost in a life filled with pressure, falsehood, selfishness, and sin, we lose sight of God’s love and power for us. But when we have genuine faith in him, we can find strength in our weaknesses and see the light in the darkness.
Moses sent men to spy on Canaan land to discover the hidden treasure of God’s kingdom before Israelites enter the land. After spying, all men reported that Canaan land flowed with “milk and honey.” However, under the same circumstances, all men have different impressions of their worthiness. Some people see themselves as grasshoppers in their own eyes, while Caleb and others who see opportunity and God’s grace believe that they are worthy of God’s protection.
Numbers 13:33 says, “We saw the Nephilim there (the descendants of Anak come from the Nephilim). We seemed like grasshoppers in our own eyes, and we looked the same to them.”
There is a common misconception among believers who believe in God and his promises. Some people believe that God is bigger than their problem, while others believe that the problem is bigger than their God even when they’ve prayed. Brethren, it does not matter who you are; your impression of your life will determine the way you live your life. Our profession determines the quality of our possession.
Our daily victory is based on our faith. Our hope in God determines how we live our lives. When obstacles stand between us and our dreams, we must not see ourselves as grasshoppers in the desert. Instead, we should see ourselves as giants in the field of righteousness with a purpose. There is always a possible answer to every problem when you trust God. Psalm 34:4 says, “I sought the Lord, and he answered me and delivered me from all my fears.”
1. Oh Lord, increase my faith with your word and enlarge my coast.
2. Psalm 118:24: This is the day that the Lord has made; I will rejoice and be glad in it in Jesus’ name.
