The other 10 Israel spies: 7 lessons we learn from their mistake



While the Israelites were on their way to Canaan, the land they had been promised, God instructed Moses in Numbers 13 when they were at the Wilderness of Paran at Kadesh to "send men to spy out the land of Canaan, which I am giving to the children of Israel..."

Moses, in his usual manner, obeyed and "sent them from the Wilderness of Paran according to the command of the Lord, all of them who were heads of the children of Israel," (v 3); with the instructions, "Go up this way into the South, and go up to the mountains, and see what the land is like: whether the people who dwell in it are strong or weak, few or many; whether the land they dwell in is good or bad; whether the cities they inhabit are like camps or strongholds; whether the land is rich or poor; and whether there are forests there or not. Be of good courage. And bring some of the fruit of the land." (vs 17-20).

We all have personal struggles. I have mine. You've got yours. But there could be a difference to how we combat 'em struggles - who we allow help us.

Your struggle will overwhelm you if you don't invite the Holy Spirit into it and hand the reins over to Him. Your struggle will break you if you hold on to it, but it can't break Him.

A heartfelt letter to Jesus, My Everything


Image source: allfreestock.com

I will start by saying thank you. I know that's a phrase you hear a lot, and I mean every letter of it.
Thank you for not giving up on me even when I had given up on myself, and almost stopped trying.
Thank you for pulling out of my mess, cleansing me with your precious blood and presenting me perfect and blameless to the world.
Thank you for rekindling hope, passion and enthusiasm in my heart.
Thank you for helping me trust and place my faith in you wholeheartedly.
Thank you for being the source of my strength, my confidence, my worth, my meaning, my joy, my peace, my hope, my help, my purpose, my life... my everything.

#SSVBlogNuggets: What do you believe?



"He touched their eyes and said, "Become what you believe. It happened. They saw." - Matthew 9:29 (MSG)

We have always read this opening verse of Scripture in the King James Version (KJV) which has it as,
"Then touched He their eyes, saying, According to your faith be it unto you. And their eyes were opened..."
But The Message Bible's translation hit me right between the eyes, it reads: "Become what you believe"!

Yay, April is here! A good time to take stock? I think so

A happy new month to you all!
Wow! It’s April already? You mean we’re past the first quarter of 2016? Hmm, time flies indeed.

Do you remember when 2016 looked like a planet away? I do.
Do you also remember when you were writing down your goals, hopes, expectations, desires and projects for 2016, and you were earnestly praying to God to make the year a good one? I do. Vividly, even. It’s still fresh in my mind.
Now, we’re firmly in that 2016, passed the first three months and staring squarely at the remaining nine of the same 2016.
