It was early one morning, I was headed to my office to catch up on some work. Music was
playing on my media player. As one song came to an end and another began to play, it
captured my attention. It was a song I have listened to many times, but today, God began to
show me something in the simple, yet powerful, words of this song.
I shared this song with many of you before. It is called, Giants.
One part exploded in my spirit. It said, “I see giants in the land…I see promise. I see promise.”
I pulled out my bible and re-read the story in Numbers 13.
God had led His people to their Promised Land. It was time for them to enter in. We all know
the story. They did not enter in because they were afraid of the giants in the land. The Bible
says they didn’t enter in because of unbelief.
Numbers 13:1 teaches us that it was GOD who told Moses to send men in to spy out the land.
God knew they would see the fruitfulness of the land. He also knew they would see the giants.
His hope was that they would believe what He had said more than what they saw. Knowing
they would see the giants, why did He send them in to spy out the land?
I believe one reason is the promise He made to Moses. We find this promise in Joshua 1:3.
I have given you every place where the sole of your foot will tread, just as I promised to Moses.
God knew their feet needed to stand upon what He had promised them. If we are not willing to
take a stand for it, we may never have it. Therefore, He sent them in to place their feet upon
what He said was theirs. Not to be intimidated by the giants in the land.
This morning as I listened to the words of the song, I realized a profound truth…if we are seeing
giants…we are seeing promise. We have come to the borders of our Promised Land. What we
do at this point is up to us.
Will we do as the children of Israel and cry, “Oh the giants are too big, we can’t fight them, we
are no match for them, let’s go back.”
Or will we be like Joshua and Caleb and declare, “The land we passed through to spy out is an
exceedingly good land. If the Lord delights in us, then He will bring us into this land and give it to
us, ‘a land which flows with milk and honey.’ Only do not rebel against the Lord, nor fear the
people of the land, for they are our bread; their protection has departed from them, and the
Lord is with us. Do not fear them.” Numbers 1:7-9
If you are battling something in your life, I wonder. Could it be there are giants in your land? If
so, you have entered into the perimeters of your promise manifested.
Personally, I have purposed in my heart to possess the promise of laying hands on the sick and
seeing them recover. I have decided I will walk fully in the word of God concerning healing and
wholeness. During my life, I have faced the giants of this promise several times? Now, I
understand, if I am seeing giants in my land…I AM SEEING PROMISE!
That excites me!
Today, I want to ask you a question…are you seeing giants in the land?
If so, my friend, you are standing within the perimeters of your promise. Refuse to focus on the
giants, do not fear them. Place your eyes on Jesus and your promise. He is well able to cause
you to possess your promise – He has already given you the land.
Some see giants.
Some…see promise. May we be one of those, those who see the promise and possess it.
Meditate on this:
Do not be afraid. Stand firm and you will see the deliverance the LORD will bring you today.
