Key Scripture: Ephesians 3:20-21
The first thing God shows you is the what, then the how, then the when. The How is mostly the opposite way of how you think it should be. We always need to trust God with the When, because His timing is perfect and always right on time.
Once we have our God given vision, and can trust Him in the what, how, and when, then we must ask Who? Who will fight the battles alongside us and enjoy the victories alongside us?
‘Then they came to the Valley of Eshcol, and there cut down a branch with one cluster of grapes; they carried it between two of them on a pole. They also brought some of the pomegranates and figs. ‘ Numbers 13:23
‘Then they told him, and said: “We went to the land where you sent us. It truly flows with milk and honey, and this is its fruit. Nevertheless the people who dwell in the land are strong; the cities are fortified and very large; moreover we saw the descendants of Anak there. ‘ Numbers 13:27-28
We cannot believe the Grasshopper Myth. The Grasshopper Myth is when you falsely believe your problem or vision is too big for you and God.
‘Then Caleb quieted the people before Moses, and said, “Let us go up at once and take possession, for we are well able to overcome it.” But the men who had gone up with him said, “We are not able to go up against the people, for they are stronger than we.” And they gave the children of Israel a bad report of the land which they had spied out, saying, “The land through which we have gone as spies is a land that devours its inhabitants, and all the people whom we saw in it are men of great stature. There we saw the giants ( the descendants of Anak came from the giants); and we were like grasshoppers in our own sight, and so we were in their sight.”’ Numbers 13:30-33
Now is not the time to sit on the sidelines, now is the time to join the fight and then enjoy the victory. The Victory or Defeat of a God Size Vision will greatly be determined by the reports we give when people ask!
