Confident in God's Promises
God wants us confident in the truth that, through him, all things are possible!
Every day of your life, you have a choice:
You can focus on the bigness of the giants of the problems that stand before you, or ...
You can focus on the bigness of the one, true God who is pouring his strength into you.
One of my favorite saying is “Your Focus Determines Your Finish. I have also learned “Your focus will determine your behavior, and it will influence your faith.”
When the Israelites first approached the borders of Canaan, Moses sent scouts into the Promised Land to assess the situation. Ten of the scouts came back with reports that focused on the giants in the land, men so big and powerful the scouts feared they could not be defeated.
However, two of the scouts remained focused on the promise from God that he would hand the land over to the Israelites. One of those scouts, Caleb, silenced the others when he said, “We should go up and take possession of the land, for we can certainly do it” (Numbers 13:30b NIV).
He was focused on the magnitude of God, not the magnitude of any giant challenges ahead. Today we may see many giants that challenge our faith — giants of time and energy, finances resources, and relationships, fear and faithlessness.
God wants us to be confident that he’s pouring His strength into us so you can do whatever it takes to defeat these giants. God says we can take possession of an abundant life because He is with us.
By seeing his hand sweep away the personal giants in your life, you’ll be even more confident that you can do all things through him who strengthens you (Philippians 4:13).
My Challenge for us today is to focus and be confident in God’s promise’s in our life be
determined to live confidently daily in those promises!
