MEMORISE: 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.”
READ: Numbers 13:26-31 : 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. 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.
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. 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. 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. 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.
If you truly want to have a big testimony, then you are indirectly
inviting a mountain. The best a little problem can deliver to you is a
small testimony. A man who is healed of headache will have a small
testimony compared to a man who is healed of cancer. But even that is
small compared to the man who died and resurrected after God’s
intervention. This season, every big problem facing you will produce big
On the other hand, the size of your mountain is proportional to the
size of your destiny. The bigger the mountain you are confronted with,
the greater your destiny is. The longer the period the mountain remains,
the more enduring your glory will be. If God is leading you to a great
promised land, expect giants on your way. In Numbers 13:26-33, the spies
that Moses sent to spy out the land of Canaan returned with their
report. After confirming that the land flows with milk and honey, verse
“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
This clearly shows that giant problems would most likely occupy a
land flowing with milk and honey. When your destiny is big, your
mountains will be big too. When Satan sensed that David was going to be
king, he brought a giant to face him. Why? Satan wanted to rob David of
his destiny by bringing a mountain in the form of a giant before him.
Every giant the devil has brought before you shall fall in Jesus name.
In the same vein, when the Lord Jesus was to go through major
temptations at very crucial stages of His life – starting of His
ministry and preparation for the Cross, Satan did not send his demons
but went to tempt Him himself. Even today, when it comes to a very
important issue that will affect both kingdoms seriously, Satan still
personally tempts God’s bona fide servants. When your mountain is big,
it is likely you are a spiritual heavy weight champion in God’s Kingdom.
Be encouraged if you are facing mountains, you are in a privileged
position to prove the power of your God.
Encountering big problems should not discourage you but encourage you that you have a big destiny ahead of you
