314 – Determined to be Faith-Filled
August 23, 1988
We went to the library. We did our school work. Friends came over to pray. Pastor George Davis met with Dan.
Numbers 13 There were giants in the land. And those who were afraid and grumbled could not enter the land. Only Joshua and Caleb had the faith. My God does not like or bless unbelief.
Numbers 14 Moses intercedes: “Lord, everyone knows that YOU have been leading and guiding these people—if you let them die—and do not bring them into the land You have promised them, everyone will know. Display Your strength. Display Your mercy and forgiveness.”
I identified with everything I was reading daily:
That we were being obedient in going out. That we were therefore going to be safe and protected and blessed. That we would have provision because God was going to take care of us. That God would display His strength, His mercy, and His forgiveness. That we would not die but live! I needed all of this encouragement.
