Bible Verse for Today
The Lord said to Abram after Lot had parted from him, “Look around from where you are, to the north and south, to the east and west. All the land that you see I will give to you and your offspring forever.” (Genesis 13:14-15)
God told Abraham to “look” and Abraham did as God commanded. Abraham didn’t ask God if it is possible to get all the lands thereby focusing on just one place like Lot did (Genesis 13:10), he was satisfied with little, he didn’t see himself as a man that is meant for greatness. After Abraham looked, God then blessed him, God made him a blessing.
The Israelites sent spies to land and came back with a bad report (Numbers 13:33) “And there we saw the giants, the sons of Anak, which come of the giants: and we were in our own sight as grasshoppers, and so we were in their sight.”
The spies had forgotten that God is the one that will fight for them and not by their own power.
What you see yourself as is what you are. Stop seeing yourself as small, see yourself as greatness, and do good works.
