Moses the man of God in Kadesh-barnea concerning you and me. I was forty years old when Moses the servant of the LORD sent me from Kadesh-barnea to spy out the land, and I brought him word again as it was in my heart. But my brothers who went up with me made the heart of the people melt; yet I wholly followed the LORD my God. -Joshua 14:6-8 ESV
Caleb, was not willing to settle- are you? However, because Caleb believed God, he was NOW willing to SETTLE the land! After 45 years of walking by Faith, after so many disappointments and setbacks- CALEB still burned; his first love was still aflame. The promises of God did not wane, did not die away; after 45 years of wandering in the wilderness, the PROMISE of God was still in his heart. It was still Caleb’s OBSESSION. He was ready to go into Canaan, He was willing to take his possession and he was ready to SETTLE his land!
Leader, you can be a CALEB or you can be like the majority-the other 10. If your Operating system is SELF or FLESH, then, like the 10- you will be! A FOS (Flesh Operating System) will always believe what your eyes see, what your ears hear and what the changing emotions of the moment tell you…OR…you can believe the PROMISES of God! God told Moses of HIS VASTNESS; Wherever you set foot, that land will be yours. Your frontiers will stretch from the wilderness in the south to Lebanon in the north, and from the Euphrates River in the east to the Mediterranean Sea in the west. (Dt 11:24)
Conduit, the promises of God are in the WORD of God. I promise you what I promised Moses: ‘Wherever you set foot, you will be on land I have given you. (Joshua 1:3) If we want to PLAY BIG for GOD then we need a GOS (God Operating System). When our (OS)operating system is GOD centered, GOD focused and GOD intentional- it changes the report! Faith comes by hearing- hearing the WORD of GOD! Today, know God’s report and BELIEVE GOD! Quit leaving His blessings on the table, for your lack of ACTION, lack of TRUST, your-lack of FAITH! The TIME IS NOW, to ACT AS IF- you believe! God is looking for men and women of GREAT FAITH!
