The spies were sent in to scope out Canaan.

Two very different reports came back.

The majority of the people reported danger and probable defeat. They told of the giants and large number of inhabitants. They painted a picture of fear and dread to the Israelites.

Joshua and Caleb, on the other hand, came back talking of the wonder of the land. The supply of flowing milk and honey. The grapes that were so large that it took men to carry them. The vision they gave was given eagerly, spoken in encouragement, hope and satisfaction.

All men were looking in the same place. But they came away with vastly different perspectives.

The difference?

Focus.

Are you focused on Christ? His promises? The will He has for your life?

Or have you allowed yourself to become overwhelmed with fear and discouragement because what you are allowing yourself to see isn’t of the Lord?

God says “I will guide thee with mine eye.”

Try looking at your situation through the eyes of the Lord. He is always working things to your good.
