Fear, What the Lord Promised Will Come to Pass

“Only rebel not ye against the Lord, neither fear ye the people of the land; for they are bread for us: their defence is departed from them, and the Lord is with us: fear them not.” Numbers 14:9 As I read this verse, I heard the Lord tell me you only need to remain steadfast in Me. I marveled as I read the verses before this one. Here you have the children of Israel who were brought out of Egypt by the mighty hand of God. He has parted the sea and given them manna to eat and still they say, “1 And all the congregation lifted up their voice, and cried; and the people wept that night. 2 And all the children of Israel murmured against Moses and against Aaron: and the whole congregation said unto them, Would God that we had died in the land of Egypt! or would God we had died in this wilderness! 3 And wherefore hath the Lord brought us unto this land, to fall by the sword, that our wives and our children should be a prey? were it not better for us to return into Egypt? 4 And they said one to another, Let us make a captain, and let us return into Egypt.” How quickly they had forgotten God’s promises and how close they were to them. Joshua and Caleb spoke up and their words fell on deaf ears, “6 And Joshua the son of Nun, and Caleb the son of Jephunneh, which were of them that searched the land, rent their clothes: 7 And they spake unto all the company of the children of Israel, saying, The land, which we passed through to search it, is an exceeding good land.8 If the Lord delight in us, then he will bring us into this land, and give it us; a land which floweth with milk and honey. 9 Only rebel not ye against the Lord, neither fear ye the people of the land; for they are bread for us: their defence is departed from them, and the Lord is with us: fear them not. 10 But all the congregation bade stone them with stones. And the glory of the Lord appeared in the tabernacle of the congregation before all the children of Israel.” All they had to do was remain steadfast in the promise of the Lord. Friends, there is no fear when we are walking in His promises. Whatever He has promised you, it WILL happen. Don’t doubt it, you only need to believe in Him and what He has told you. 💛 ~ Chelle, #f8ithgal
