WHAT THE MINORITY SAID, WHAT THE MAJORITY SAID AND WHAT GOD SAID!
One. GOD SAID: "The land of Canaan which I give unto the Children of Israel" Numbers 13:2. "Every place whereon the soles of your feet shall tread shall be yours . there shall be no man able to stand before you" - Deuteronomy 11:24-25, Joshua 1:3.
Two. TEN SPIES SAID: "We be not able to go up against the people, for they are stronger than we" Numbers 13:31. "We saw the giants . we were in our own sight as grasshoppers" - Numbers 13:33.
Three. TWO SPIES SAID: "Let us go up at once, and possess it . the Lord is with us, fear them not" - Numbers 13:30; 14:9.
Four. It is amazing! Twelve men walked side by side, saw the same country, witnessed the same conditions. All gave a glowing report of what they saw. But ten men had a negative, fearful attitude. Two had a confident, faith attitude. Ten voted for defeat and failure. Two voted for success and victory. A right and wrong attitude is what prevailed.
Five. How about you? "God has given you all things that pertain to life and godliness" 2 Peter 1:5. "He has blessed you with all spiritual blessings in heavenly places in Christ" Ephesians 1:3. "God is the giver of every good and perfect gift" James 1:17. "God delights to give you richly all things to enjoy" 1Timothy 6:17. The Bible declares "All things are yours, and you are Christ's" - 1 Corinthians 3:21.
Six. Are you praising God for these wonderful gifts which are yours? Cease glorifying your defeats, your lack, your sickness, and begin to glorify God in your victories, your supply, your health. It is high time to convert your excuses into testimonies!
Seven. On which ballot are you voting? For victory or defeat? For success or failure? Boldly affirm the scriptures that assure of conquest in all spiritual battles and you'll experience them. Be hesitant and reluctant about your provisions in Christ and you'll be defeated.
Eight. The bolder your confession of faith, the greater will be your victories. Praise God for all things that are yours. Not "I wish I was blessed," but "I am blessed with all spiritual blessings in Christ Jesus!" Hallelujah, it is so!
Nine. Confess your riches in Christ, then possess your possessions!
