Giants in the Land

Read Numbers 13:17-29

This was their report: "We arrived in the land you sent us to see, and it is indeed a magnificent country - a land flowing with milk and honey. Here is some fruit we have brought as proof. But the people living there are powerful, and their cities are fortified and very large; and what's more, we saw Anakim giants there! The Amalekites live in the south, while in the hill country there are the Hittites, Jebusites, and Amorites; down along the coast of the Mediterranean Sea and in the Jordan River valley are the Canaanites." Numbers 13: 27-29 (TLB)

When the spies Moses sent to the land of Canaan returned and gave their report, they had both good and bad news. They reported that the land truly flowed with milk and honey, and they brought fruit back with them. However, they also reported that the people living there were powerful, the cities were fortified and very large, and they saw descendants of Anak there. The descendants of Anak were giants. They are described in Deuteronomy 9:2: "These people are large and tall - they are the Anakim. You know and have heard what people say: 'Who can stand up to the Anakim?'" (CEB)

Today we face our own giants. although they look different from those described in Canaan, they instill fear in our lives. These fears can cause us to freeze up and stop trying to achieve our goals. But as giants appear in our lives, seemingly blocking the path toward our goals, we should not fear them. God is with us every step of the way and will fulfill every promise God has made to us.

Prayer: Loving Father, thank you for keeping your promise to be with us today and every day, in Jesus' name. Amen.
