The people refused to enter the pleasant land, for they wouldn’t believe his promise to care for them.
Psalms 106:24 (NLT)

There are sad stories, but this is one of the saddest. After years of slavery, Moses liberated the children of God. However, because of their disobedience they wandered in the wilderness for forty years. Finally, they were on the border of the Promised Land and God told them to send out twelve spies into the land. When they came back, ten of the spies gave a negative report saying it was impossible to overtake the giants that lived in the Land. Joshua and Caleb said that they should trust God to give them victory. Sadly, the people ended up refusing to go into the land. Why? Because they were scared? At first glance it seems so, but today’s verse shares the sad truth. The real reason they did not enter the promise land was they doubted God. They doubted if He cared; even worse, whether He was able to care for them. How many opportunities have you missed? How many times have you let fear stop you from following God? How many times have you doubted whether God cared for your situation? Worse, how many times have you doubted that He would or could care for you? Today, repent of your unbelief. Put your faith in God and let Him lead you into the land He has for you.

Dear Father, forgive me for my crippling doubts. Help me to know You more so I will trust You in everything You ask me to do. In Jesus’ name.

About Ronald

I am a Christian who deeply believes in God and the purposes He has put us on earth for. I started in ministry when I was 20 years old. I have been involved in both evangelism and compassion ministires. I deeply believe in our mission to help those in need. I believe however,that the church has missed our calling. We have not been effective in loving others as we would love ourselves. We have not been using our Spiritual Gifts to make a difference in this world. We have not mobilized to be the salt and light in the world. The goal of this web site is to help those interested to use their Spiritual Gifts in order to fulfill the mission Christ has given us to love the world.
