" PREVAILING FAITH "
by David Wilkerson
In Numbers 13 and 14, we find the language and definitions of true
faith and unbelief. The ten spies who had gone up into the land had
returned with a report of what they had seen. "We went to the land
where you sent us. It truly flows with milk and honey, and this is
its fruit. Nevertheless the people who dwell in the land are strong;
the cities are fortified and very large" (Numbers 13:27-28). So the
report was both positive and negative.
The people panicked and cried out in fear and unbelief, "We are
not able to go up against the people, for they are stronger than
we" (see 13:31). But Caleb, a quiet voice of faith, had just the
opposite approach: "Let us go up at once and take possession,
for we are well able to overcome it" (13:30).
The whole congregation joined in, "Let´s go back to Egypt and
captivity. We can´t make it to the Promised Land. There are too
many strong enemies" (14:1-4). But again, faith speaks through
Joshua and Caleb: "The land we passed through to spy out is an
exceedingly good land ... [The Lord] will bring us into this land
and give it to us, a land which flows with milk and honey" (14:7-8).
God wants to know what is in your heart as a true believer. Is it
fear of giants and a desire to go back to Egypt? He wants a people
who will use faith to tear down everything that keeps them from
the fullness of Jesus.
The enemy has no power to stop God´s people from attaining what
he has for them. Satan may be using a giant of trouble against
you right now - not to keep you down but to keep you out. All
hell is raging against you to keep you from moving into the fullness
of Christ, to a place of rest, a life of confidence and a walk of
peace under his lordship.
Let your faith prevail and proclaim, "I will not fear what man can
do. My enemies have no power for God is with me. I´m going in
to what he has for me!"
