This is your B moment. Your moment to be still…to be fed by the Word of God…to be grateful.
Scripture reference: Matthew 11:23 (NLT)
Today I am encouraging you to embed God’s promises deep within your heart.
Sometimes we might become discouraged by what we see in the moment and talk ourselves out of believing in God’s promises to us. In fact, this is exactly what happened to the Israelites when they were on their way to the Promised Land.
God instructed Moses to send twelve tribal leaders to explore Canaan, otherwise known as the Promised Land so that they could come back and give Moses a full report on what the land looked like. The twelve leaders came back with a glowing report. They said the land was magnificent and that it truly was overflowing with milk and honey.
However, the leaders were also terribly frightened of the residents of the land. They thought the city was advanced and well-fortified with giant, strong people who could overtake them at any time. In their minds, they could not believe there was any way of conquering Canaan.
Because of their fear, the leaders began to doubt God’s ability to fulfill His promise. They doubted Him and wanted to return to Egypt, a place they knew well. The situation is almost unthinkable because they had just witnessed God parting the Red Sea for them. They saw what He was capable of, but they still doubted Him. They didn’t keep God’s promise to them embedded deep within their hearts.
So, the next time you are trusting in God’s promises but see something that causes doubt to creep in, remember these words, “All that’s required is that you really believe and do not doubt in your heart.” Mark 11:23 (NLT)
