Deuteronomy 1:22 New International Version (NIV)
22 Then all of you came to me and said, “Let us send men ahead to spy out the land for us and bring back a report about the route we are to take and the towns we will come to.”
The scouts had been sent into the land to determine where they should enter. But, when the scouts came back, they were overcome with all the obstacles they had to hurdle to get the Promised Land. God would give the Israelites the power to conquer the land. God gives us the power to overcome obstacles in our lives today. Do you get filled with fear? Do you let the difficulties control your life? Follow God regardless of how you feel and what obstacles seem to block you. Demonstrate and practice courage and faith to overcome and succeed.
