“And they brought up an evil report of the land which they had searched unto the children of Israel, saying, The Land, through which we have gone to search it, is a land that eateth up the inhabitants thereof; and all the people that we saw in it are men of a great stature. 33. And there we saw the giants, the sons of Anak, which come of the giants: and we were in our own sight as grasshoppers, and so we were in their sight.” Numbers 13:32-33
Moses, the servant of God sent twelve (12) men, each from the twelve tribes of Israel. The search took them forty days. They were to search out the land of Canaan, (The Promised Land) and know the condition of the people and the place. Numbers 13:17-20.
Suppose God ministered to you directly towards the end of year 2017, that year 2018 is your year of peace, progress, prosperity, health and the fulfilment of long standing promise you have been trusting Him for. As a result of all these direct revelation from God, you came into year 2018 with a lot of excitement and expectations. But suddenly, something happen in your country that brought about uncertainty of the fulfilment of all those promises. Some challenges are already showing up in the family and in your office this first month of the year threatening your Mind about the revealed word of God to you. Whose report will you set your MIND to believe? The report of your current challenges or the report of the Lord? Joshua and Caleb mind-sets were set on the report of the Lord. Numbers 14:6-9
People give report about someone, something or situation based on their Mind-Set and perception about it. Your make-up affects your Mind-set, and your mind-set is a true reflection of you. The ten other men that went to spy the land with Joshua and Caleb, brought evil reports about the land. They expressed fear based on their Mind-sets that is yet to be transformed through faith in the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob. Their mind-sets would not allow them to embrace the promise of Canaan as their possession. They saw negativities more than possibilities.
Why set your mind on the curses from your neighbour and people when you know you cannot be curse as a redeemed child of God? Numbers 22:9-12
Why set your mind on wrong foundation? You have been told that there are satanic foundations working against your progress in life and that has been your focus and prayer every day of your life. Let your Mind-set be on Christ foundation. His foundation will set you free. Focus on Christ principles and practice them by grace. 1st Corins 3:10
Why set your mind on false Dreams instead of the Dream/Purpose of God for your life? Jeremiah 29:11
Why set your mind on the lies of the devil? When your Mind-set is on the lies of the devil, you will manifest his lies. John 8:44
Why set your mind on evil inheritance? If you believe you have inherited evil from your fore-fathers, you will continue to manifest it. Colossians 1:13-14
Why set your mind on failures, retrogression and disappointments in life?
Why set your mind on False Experiences Appearing Real?
Why set your mind on the past that will never come back?
Why set your mind on the giants in the land when He that lives in you is Greater than he that is in the world?
Why set your mind on defeat when Jeremiah 1:17-19 is your portion?
The other ten spies that went with Joshua and Caleb to spy the land, brought evil report because their Minds could not believe that God has given them the land, and has spoken good concerning them through His servant Moses. Numbers 10:29. To possess what belongs to you, your mind MUST be ready to receive it. Your transformed mind Must have it before arrival. They discouraged the people from a discouraged MIND. Don’t be a victim of discouraged minds this year. Separate yourself from people going nowhere this year. They see negativity in everything. They call you to give you negative news. They are critics of what is good. They don’t believe what you are doing will work and they want to discourage you from doing it. Some people’s Mind have been corrupted through envy and they will do everything within their power to influence you to follow and believe their evil report. RUN FOR YOUR LIFE FOR THEY DON’T HAVE YOUR INTEREST AT HEART.
I pray for you today, that your mind will not dwell on evil report. You will not be one of those that will discourage others from possessing their possession. You will enjoy the ministry of encouragers that will help you to fulfil destiny. Your Mind-set will be on the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob whose promises cannot fail in Jesus name, amen.
The kingdom of God is the kingdom of the soul. The soul consist of your emotion, mind and will. God wants to control your soul. Surrender your soul to Jesus today.
