Numbers 13:26-33 (NKJV)
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…there we saw the giants…and we were like grasshoppers in our own sight, and so we were in their sight.”
The “Kemp translation” of a land flowing with milk and honey is a land flowing with homemade ice cream and Krispy Kreme donuts!
Bottom line, whether you read it as “ice cream”, “milk and honey”, or something else, what it means is God’s best for you.
However, the one thing that will keep God’s best away from you is “giants.”
What are giants? A “giant” is anything that is big in your life.
A giant doesn’t have to be evil. Many of the giants (those big things, important things, time-consuming things) in our lives are actually good things, even things that are applauded and celebrated by society and the church.
But nevertheless, if they become so big in your life that they keep you away from God’s best then they must be cut down to size.
- The ONE THING for today: What are the big things in your life right now? Are they connected to God’s best for your life or are they blocking you from receiving or going after God’s best?
