Are you a grasshopper or a Giant?
“Every battle is won or lost in the arena of your mind.”
In the book of Numbers, the Israelites refused to take possession of the land that God prepared for them because they saw themselves as grasshoppers, small and weak. “We can’t attack those people; they are stronger than we are….The land we explored devours those living it. All the people we saw there are of great size.” Numbers 13:31-32. As a man think, so he is, and the Israelites thought of themselves as grasshoppers, even though they repeatedly witnessed the power and might of God. Because the Israelites thought of themselves as weak, like grasshoppers, their opponents shared the same opinion, “We seemed like grasshoppers in our own eyes, and we looked the same to them.” Numbers 13:33
What are you waiting on? You are not a grasshopper. If you are a child of God, then you are a Giant, and you have power, anointing, and the mind of Christ. You have what you need to succeed already planted inside of you.
What are you afraid of? The only people who fail are those who don’t do anything. If you try things, and they don’t work out, at least you tried. You will have no regrets. “The Lord is my light and my salvation, whom shall I fear? The Lord is the stronghold of my life, of whom shall I be afraid?” Psalm 27:1
There is no reason that you cannot be physically, emotionally, mentally, and financially wealthy and prosperous. God promised in Jeremiah 29:11, Deuteronomy 28, and many other scriptures that we, His children…those believing that Jesus died on the cross to save us…, would be successful, peaceful, and joyful. All He asks us to do is to obey His commands, forgive, give, tithe, trust in Him, have faith in Him, live in the Spirit and not in the flesh, and love others.
Know who you are! God is backing you. There are no limitations. Know and believe that your endeavors are successful. Open your mind to what success is. It is not just monetary. Don’t be like the Israelites who never made it to the promised land; instead, their children, bold and ready, took possession of the land. The original Israelites did not have faith (except for Caleb and Joshua). Be a Giant…have giant thoughts. Don’t be a grasshopper, always afraid of Giants, looking for meager handouts, taking the lowest, always waiting on something to happen. Be a Giant and make things happen. If you do your part, God will add His super to your natural.
“Delight yourself in the Lord and He will give you the desires of your heart.” Psalm 37:4
