Scripture: Numbers 13: 21,22, 27-33, 14:36-38
Moses sent two leaders from each tribe to spy out the land. Joshua and Caleb brought back a good report. The other ten believed the giants were more than they could handle. Numbers 14:36-38 records God’s response when it says, “Now the men whom Moses sent to spy out the land, who returned and made all the congregation complain against him by bringing a bad report of the land, those very men who brought the evil report about the land, died by the plague before the LORD. But Joshua the son of Nun and Caleb the son of Jephunneh remained alive, of the men who went to spy out the land.” God terminated the ten men who brought back a report saying they could not go into the land. What does that say concerning destiny? Whenever we say no to God’s ordained destiny because it involves more risk than we assess prudent to take, we potentially qualify to forfeit our call. The ten forfeited their assignment. Joshua and Caleb fulfilled theirs but had to wait for a generation to die off. On what are we waiting?
