Study Material: Numbers 13:30-31
30 Then Caleb quieted the people before Moses, and said, “Let us go up at once and take possession, for we are well able to overcome it”
31 But the men who had gone up with him said, “We are not able to go up against the people, for they are stronger than we”.
Isn’t it amazing how differently we can see things from many perspectives? What we say about what we see is determined by many factors including age, past experience, and beliefs. A trained professional may likely judge a matter differently from a layman. The same is sometimes true for an adult and a kid. However, in order for us to possess our possessions and hold claim to our miracles, we must see things the way God sees them.
God desires that we all see things as He does irrespective of our differences in age and experience. This can only be possible through the eyes of faith which we acquire as we walk faithfully with the Lord. In contrast to the giants that the other ten spies saw, Caleb and Joshua saw the good land of Canaan. They proclaimed “the land we passed through to spy out is an exceedingly good land” (Numbers 14:7). The eyes of faith that made the difference here! Through those eyes of faith and positive confession, Caleb and Joshua entered and possessed the land of Canaan while the others perished in the wilderness.
We truly need the eyes of faith as we journey through this race of life on earth. As we desire to fully possess our possessions in Christ Jesus, let us also desire to see life circumstances through the eyes of faith. We must overcome unbelief, doubts, hopelessness, and anxiety if we want to receive our miracle. Our miracle requires us to look beyond our situation to see our impossible. A mountain is only a bump when viewed through the eyes of faith.
Take Home lesson: Through the eyes of faith, we can see and possess what others cannot. Miracles are for those who believe; and those who believe see through the eyes of faith.
Homework: Ask the Lord for eyes of faith to see and possess the impossibilities.
