Have you began planning for your blessing? I recall reading Numbers 13, and watching the words unfold from the page as Moses begin to delegate leaders of tribes positioning them for their assignments as God had desired that they would be called to spy out the land.
The positioning reminded me of a person praying, receiving guidance from God and that person being lead as and instrument into the places and territory God wanted him/her to see for the next level that they would embark upon. However these men saw the view of the land differently when they arrived to the area they were to bring information back on. The bible denotes that most of these men saw through their earthly eyes, potential (flesh) and their human abilities, but Caleb saw through God’s potential supernatural, driven by faith to take the land that was preserved form the Israelites. Calebs report was much different from the other men. Caleb saw that the Israelites where well able to possess the land and he set his mind on possessing the land as his confession, which is what he brought back to Moses.
Many may have heard this story and some may not have heard this story. There is and ongoing plot of inspiration here because there is a blessing of milk and Honey, which was promised to the Israelites earlier on in the bible. Due to the fact the blessing was stated earlier in the bible, this is a way that God sets His work in order, giving us the process He uses to let us know the promise is coming concerning the words God gave in reference to the milk and honey flowing in the lives of the Israelites. God spoke the promise of the Land of Milk and Honey to Moses in Exodus 3:17.
Numbers 13 God sets his camp in order through Moses to begin spying the land of Milk and Honey out.
Exodus 3:17 And I have promised to bring you up out of your misery in Egypt into the land of the Canaanites, Hittites, Amorites, Perizzites, Hivites and Jebusites–a land flowing with milk and honey.’
My question to you is have you prepared for the milk and honey? Have you worked at learning what your going to do to maintain the milk and honey you have been praying for? If not there is more work to be done. You have been praying for that stray child and he comes home, what will you do? You have been praying for more members to come and join the work of your church or business, what will you do with them? Do you have a system? You have been praying for that adulterous wife/husband to come back, but what will you do with them when they come back (milk and honey).
Go up to the land flowing with milk and honey. But I will not go with you, because you are a stiff-necked people and I might destroy you on the way.”
Numbers 13 And they returned from searching of the land after forty days.
26 And they went and came to Moses, and to Aaron, and to all the congregation of the children of Israel, unto the wilderness of Paran, to Kadesh; and brought back word unto them, and unto all the congregation, and shewed them the fruit of the land.
27 And they told him, and said, We came unto the land whither thou sentest us, and surely it floweth with milk and honey; and this is the fruit of it.
28 Nevertheless the people be strong that dwell in the land, and the cities are walled, and very great: and moreover we saw the children of Anak there.
29 The Amalekites dwell in the land of the south: and the Hittites, and the Jebusites, and the Amorites, dwell in the mountains: and the Canaanites dwell by the sea, and by the coast of Jordan.
30 And Caleb stilled the people before Moses, and said, Let us go up at once, and possess it; for we are well able to overcome it.
31 But the men that went up with him said, We be not able to go up against the people; for they are stronger than we.
32 And they brought up an evil report of the land which they had searched unto the children of Israel, saying, The land, through which we have gone to search it, is a land that eateth up the inhabitants thereof; and all the people that we saw in it are men of a great stature.
Your report can never differ from that of the word of the Lord as we find the leaders who were appointed by Moses concluding. Even when our eyes seem to see defeat we must look at the word of God and say this is not relative to the word of God, which means there is a possibility there is a spirit of confusion and a spirit of deception here. Caleb had a totally different view which meant these guys were seeing two different things. In this case we ask our selves what is the report of the Lord… Go to the word. The report should always line up with what the Lord says or has already said.
Therefore there is no if ands or buts when the milk and honey is going to flow the fact of the matter is if you do no know how to sustain what you have been paring for learn what it takes. The other thing is when you have prayed, the bible says stand and see the salvation of the Lord. The salvation of the Lord is a given therefore when we stand we expect our victory, because freedom and liberation comes through Gods anointing. To sum this all up, your eyes can only see what you internally believe, because the men were intimidated by the size of the men they saw when the spied the land out, there emotion told them they where not able to have what God had already given them. Do you feel what you have been praying for is to hard? Add the joy of the Lord and allow the spirit to rise in you, let the spirit stir up the gift so that you become inspired and every wall, strong hold, and interfering spirit be bond and sent back to the pits of hell today in Jesus name! That’s right have faith in the word and see things courageous and bold like Caleb. God has plans of good for you so hold on because He is revealing more on the matter in Jesus name.
