Today’s Scattered Seeds

As I’m going about my week, my thoughts keep circling back to Numbers Chapter 13, where Moses sends out 12 men to explore the land of Canaan. Moses had questions for them: What was the land like? What were the people like? Were they strong or weak? Were there few or many? Was the city fortified? Was the soil good? As they planned to invade the land, they needed to know what lay ahead.

After 40 days, the 12 men returned to report what they saw. While the land was flowing with milk and honey, it was also met with difficulty. And so, instead of putting their faith in the power of God, ten of them foolishly chose to rely on the power of man.

Two of them, on the other hand looked forward with faith and anticipation. They believed in the power of God, and knew that with Him on their side, nothing could stand in their way.

The apostle John writes, “Greater is he that is in you, than he that is in the world.”

Much like the twelve men in this story, we all have decisions to make when it comes to our future. We all have to decide if we’re walking in faith or walking in fear.

A road paved with possibility; a journey unknown… Will we face this new year with fear? Or, by faith in the power of God, will we face it with courage and hope?
