For the 2nd night this verse has been given to us:
Num 13:33 we were like grasshoppers in our own sight, and so we were in their sight.
This is from two different speakers that attend two different churches.
The verse is from the men that did not believe they could take the Promised Land that God had led them to.
When I think of a grasshopper my mind sees this small, virtually harmless insect; harmless because they don’t bite or sting humans. Imagine if they did!
However the Israelites missed the important characteristic of grasshoppers – in swarms they can take over the land.
Indeed it seems at times that Christians are like grasshoppers in this secular world. Therefore we don’t act. We sit. We get ran over by the world!
But Israel wasn’t grasshoppers and neither are we!
We are the people of a Holy God that has commanded us to go and take the land; to go and spread the Gospel, making disciples, and baptizing in the name of Jesus!
We need to be as grasshoppers and swarm the land in the name of Jesus!
Abba, I want to move forward into the land and face those giants today in the name of Jesus!! YES&AMEN
