The report of the ten spies is an example of faith in reverse. Even when you doubt, you are believing something. You are believing in defeat. You are believing the wrong thing. You will get what you believe.

Look at the good report of Joshua and Caleb. They trusted in the Lord and their hearts were filled with faith that God was able to bring them into the land that He had promised them. Two times they admonished the people not to fear.

What was the result of their report of faith, their good report? They were the only two men of their generation to enter the Promised Land.

You can have whatever you say and believe.

Was it the giants in the land that defeated God’s people that day? NO! They didn’t even face the giants in the land. It was the giants of fear and unbelief that defeated God’s people that day.

It is not the physical giants in life that defeat you. It is not the storms of life that defeat you. If you are defeated, it is doubt, unbelief and fear that has defeated you. It is wrong thinking, wrong believing and wrong speaking that defeats. Nothing else can stop the plan of God for your life. If you can only believe and trust in His word and His faithfulness.
