Statement of Faith

And Caleb stilled the people before Moses, and said, Let us go up at once, and possess it; for we are well able to overcome it. Numbers 13:30

And Caleb stilled the people before Moses, and said, Let us go up at once, and possess it; for we are well able to overcome it. Numbers 13:30     Life is a battle and only the courageous will definitely come out stronger.      In a brief  Commentary of  Matthew Henry, he said: We may wonder that the people of Israel staid forty days for the return of their spies, when they were ready to enter Canaan, under all the assurances of success they could have from the Divine power, and the miracles that had hitherto attended them. But they distrusted God's power and promise. How much we stand in our own light by our unbelief!     At length the messengers returned; but the greater part discouraged the people from going forward to Canaan. Justly are the Israelites left to this temptation, for putting confidence in the judgment of men, when they had the word of God to trust in. Though they had found the land as good as God had said, yet they would not believe it to be as sure as he had said, but despaired of having it, though Eternal Truth had engaged it to them.      This was the representation of the evil spies. Caleb, however, encouraged them to go forward, though seconded by Joshua only. He does not say, Let us go up and conquer it; but, Let us go and possess it. Difficulties that are in the way of salvation, dwindle and vanish before a lively, active faith in the power and promise of God.      All things are possible, if they are promised, to him that believes; but carnal sense and carnal professors are not to be trusted.      Unbelief overlooks the promises and power of God, magnifies every danger and difficulty, and fills the heart with discouragement. May the Lord help us to believe! we shall then find all things possible.      You, what you the statement of your faith when you are faced with difficult challenges that seen to 'swallow'  you up?   If we can have a firm courage and faith that God expects us to put on at all times, we will be overcomers in all thing and at all time without hinderance.

You, what is the statement of your faith when you are faced with difficult challenges that seem to 'swallow'  you up?

If we can have a firm courage and faith that God expects us to put on at all times, we will  overcome in all thing and at all time without hindrance.
