Moses sent twelve men to spy out the land of Canaan. Ten of the twelve spies were afraid of the large men that lived there. Two of the spies had a totally different opinion. “And Joshua the son of Nun and Caleb the son of Jephunneh, who were among those who had spied out the land, tore their clothes and said to all the congregation of the people of Israel, ‘The land, which we passed through to spy it out, is an exceedingly good land. If the LORD delights in us, he will bring us into this land and give it to us, a land that flows with milk and honey. Only do not rebel against the LORD. And do not fear the people of the land, for they are bread for us. Their protection is removed from them, and the LORD is with us; do not fear them.’” (Numbers 14:6-9) We should have the same attitude as Joshua and Caleb. If we are living according to God’s word, He will be with us and protect us.
