Today Reminder - 26 December 2012 (Different)

A reminder for today
But my servant Caleb has a different attitude than the others have. He has remained loyal to me, so I will bring him into the land he explored. His descendants will possess their full share of that land. (Numbers 14:24)

Different, don’t you want to be different? Once again the Israelites have turned away from God and in this they angered God. So instead of entering the Promised Land, God punishes their faithlessness by letting them wonder in the wilderness for forty years. You see God wanted to destroy them there and then, but Moses interceded for them and pleaded with the Lord to spare them, yet the Lord was tired of their ways. God said that none of them will enter the Promised Land. Only their children will see it and with the exception of Caleb and Joshua who did not turn their backs against the Lord but remained faithful.

My dear friend, instead of fearing the giants and losing faith, Joshua and Caleb stood up and argued with the Israelite leaders. They were different. They did not follow the direction of those with little faith, but instead they knew who God is and trusted Him like they should, knowing God will come through for them as He promised.

God will not leave you or forget you. He is and will always deliver you from whatever it is you may face. Come with me today as we will be different and not follow the direction of the lost, but instead follow the direction of God. Let’s stand out and be different as we live our lives trusting our Lord with unbroken faith and diligence.

Have an awesome day, dear friend of Jesus.
