You Got to See IT Right

(Numbers 13:33)  And there we saw the Nephilim there (the sons of Anak, who come of the Nephilim) and we were in our own sight as grasshoppers, and so we were in their sight.”

When you carry forward with you the reproach of different things that you have struggled with or currently struggle with, it will always keep you from realizing your righteousness in Christ. Always. Always. When you see your life through the lens of self, it’s very small. That’s what the spies came back and said. They had totally lost sight of God’s reputation, because they were so concerned about their own. Numbers 13:33 says that they gave the man of God, Moses this report. They said, “We saw the Nephilim there…” The Nephilim were giants. It might represent anything in your life that’s too powerful for you and your own strength. It might represent your fear, or your insecurity. That chronic thing keeps creeping into your life, taking you down. It doesn’t have to be a physical giant or a physical enemy.

In fact, the Bible says, “We wrestle not against flesh and blood”. There’s a good chance that your Nephilim has a different name. “‘And you to saw the Giants. And they seemed like grasshoppers in your own eyes..”.. but wait, why are you comparing yourself to the Giants? You are suppose to be comparing your giants to your God.  I would like to pray for you today that God would remind you of His reputation. He’s never lost a battle. He’s never met a need that He couldn’t meet.
