Text: Numbers 14:26-39

Key Verse: “Even those men that did bring up the evil report upon the land, died by the plague before the LORD” (Numbers 14:37).


Robert Schuller, a writer, pointed out in one of his books, that “you may not be able to control the times, but you can compose your response. You can turn your pain into profanity or into poetry. The choice is up to you. You may not have chosen your tough time, but you can choose how you will react to it.” Man, most times, is the architect of his fortunes or misfortunes. The Bible says that as a man thinketh in his heart so is he.

Those who say, “I can do all things through Christ which strenghteneth me” have always made it to the top. Cowards and fault-finders never made it. Never say to your boss, “the task is impossible, I can’t do it”. The wisest thing to do is to keep quiet and try your best. When he sees your efforts and the impossibility of the task, he is likely to recall you; he will be glad you obeyed him in the first place. Today, many people see failure even before they begin a task. How we perceive a task determines the outcome. Today, we see the story of ten spies who chose to see things with carnal eyes. They decided to respond negatively to a potential challenge; polluted the minds of others and incited them into murmuring against their leader and against God. Had they joined Caleb and Joshua (part of the spies) to confess positively their ability to overrun Canaan, God would have confirmed their words.

Many believers unnecessarily get into problem because of their negative reactions to issues. They easily dismiss instructions from leaders, and also incite others to disobey instructions from their superiors. Such attitudes lead to rebellion and divisions in the church. And since God is not an Author of confusion, He does not condone such flagrant exhibition of unruly behavior. To escape God’s wrath, such acts of rebellion must be speedily repented of and forgiveness sincerely sought.

Thought for the day: It is wise to use the tongue to build, not to destroy.
