Depends On The Report

Everyone has their own opinion and way of seeing things, as the saying goes some see a glass half full while others see it as half empty. When Caleb and Joshua who were part of twelve that were sent to view the promised land their report was different from the others. Ten saw a land full of giants who were stronger than them, but Caleb and Joshua’s report was one very positive and with God would be able to overcome them. ( Numbers 13:26-33 ). 26 And they went and came to Moses, and to Aaron, and to all the congregation of the children of Israel, unto the wilderness of Paran, to Kadesh; and brought back word unto them, and unto all the congregation, and shewed them the fruit of the land. 27 And they told him, and said, We came unto the land whither thou sentest us, and surely it floweth with milk and honey; and this [is] the fruit of it. 28 Nevertheless the people [be] strong that dwell in the land, and the cities [are] walled, [and] very great: and moreover we saw the children of Anak there. 29 The Amalekites dwell in the land of the south: and the Hittites, and the Jebusites, and the Amorites, dwell in the mountains: and the Canaanites dwell by the sea, and by the coast of Jordan. 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. 31 But the men that went up with him said, We be not able to go up against the people; for they [are] stronger than we. 32 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.

If we listen to a wrong report then we too could miss what God has for us! There will always be nay sayers, but if God be for us who can be against us. All Gods promises in Christ are not always nay ( no ) but yea ( yes )! ( 2 Corinthians 1:17-22 ).
