TOPIC: Caleb’s Victorious Faith (I) (Mountain Of Fire and Miracle Ministries, MFM Daily Devotional 18 April 2021)
BIBLE IN ONE YEAR: Psalm 121, 123-125, 128-130
FIRE SCRIPTURE: Numbers 13:23-33
23 And they came unto the brook of Eshcol, and cut down from thence a branch with one cluster of grapes, and they bare it between two upon a staff; and they brought of the pomegranates, and of the figs.
24 The place was called the brook Eshcol, because of the cluster of grapes which the children of Israel cut down from thence.
25 And they returned from searching of the land after forty days.
26 And they went and came to Moses, and to Aaron, and to all the congregation of the children of Israel, unto the wilderness of Paran, to Kadesh; and brought back word unto them, and unto all the congregation, and shewed them the fruit of the land.
27 And they told him, and said, We came unto the land whither thou sentest us, and surely it floweth with milk and honey; and this is the fruit of it.
28 Nevertheless the people be strong that dwell in the land, and the cities are walled, and very great: and moreover we saw the children of Anak there.
29 The Amalekites dwell in the land of the south: and the Hittites, and the Jebusites, and the Amorites, dwell in the mountains: and the Canaanites dwell by the sea, and by the coast of Jordan.
30 And Caleb stilled the people before Moses, and said, Let us go up at once, and possess it; for we are well able to overcome it.
31 But the men that went up with him said, We be not able to go up against the people; for they are stronger than we.
32 And they brought up an evil report of the land which they had searched unto the children of Israel, saying, The land, through which we have gone to search it, is a land that eateth up the inhabitants thereof; and all the people that we saw in it are men of a great stature.
33 And there we saw the giants, the sons of Anak, which come of the giants: and we were in our own sight as grasshoppers, and so we were in their sight.
MEMORY VERSE: “Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen. For by it the elders obtained a good report.” – Hebrews 11:1
Nothing meaningful can happen in your life if faith is absent.
PRAISE WORSHIP: Take a worship song as led by the Holy Spirit
PROPHETIC WORD FOR TODAY:
BELIEVE THE IMPOSSIBLE AND YOU WILL GET THE MIRACULOUS, IN THE NAME OF JESUS.
Faith is seeing what is not there as if it is very visible for all to see.
The twelve spies returned from an espionage mission to the land of Canaan. They brought back reports to Moses and the people of Israel. The people were eager to hear the good news. However, what they got was not what they expected. The report of ten of the twelve spies had two dimensions to it.
God’s past faithfulness, leading them out of Egypt personally had not won their loyalty. They did not trust in God and His promises as regards their future, hence there was evil report (Numbers 13:32-33). The people of Israel sank into dependency and wept the whole night through.
Do you believe like Joshua and Caleb? It can, at times, seem like that in our Christian lives as well. We give up our old life to follow Jesus with high hopes of a better life. But then, our enemy, the sin in our life, looms up very large and threatening, seemingly impossible to overcome and we begin to say within us that serving our Saviour costs so much.
Caleb spoke out, he even rent his clothes because of the people’s unbelief. God even testified to that. “But my servant Caleb, because he had another spirit with him, and hath followed me fully, him will I bring into the land whereinto he went; and his seed shall possess it” (Numbers 14:24).
Victorious faith is seeing the promises of God in action. Has God said it? He will definitely bring it to pass. The “another spirit” that God attributed to Caleb can be described as the “it can be done spirit”. No matter what you see now, no matter who is involved, when God steps in, it can be done. The spirit of victorious faith in Caleb made him to speak with boldness, not minding that majority of his colleagues in the espionage gave a different report.
Victorious faith will give you victory before the battle and sink a well before thirst comes. Are you bold enough to hold on to the word of God? I encourage you to believe God’s word and it shall come to pass.
- Spirit of confusion, depart from the camp of my life, in the name of Jesus.
- Powers that stopped my colleagues, you cannot stop me, die, in the name of Jesus.
- Power to possess my possession, fall upon me now by fire, in the name of Jesus.
- Spirit of discouragement, I am not your candidate, release me and die, in the name of Jesus.
- My Father, put the head of my Goliath in my hands, in the name of Jesus.
- Any power standing on my way of testimony, die, in the name of Jesus.
- Strangers occupying my land of blessings, clear away and die, in the name of Jesus.
