"We are Well Able".

In Numbers 13:30 (KJV) we read what Caleb reported to Moses about the land of Canaan. He said: "Let us go up at once and possess it; for we are well able to overcome it". However, in verse 31 we read what 10 of the other spies said: "we be not able to go up against the people; for they are stronger than we".

This is very interesting because they had all seen the same giants; the latter group were filled with fear but Caleb and also Joshua saw things differently. Caleb was making a declaration of faith (trusting God to give them the victory) but the other group just went by what they saw in the natural. As you may know this delayed taking possession of Canaan for 40 year!

Caleb was not denying the strength of the giants but he put God into the equation and this produced faith. He actually had to exercise faith AND patience during his 40-year wait (Heb 6:12, 10:36). In 2 Corinthians 5:7 it says we walk by faith not by what we see; that's what faith is all about. If you are facing giant sized problems in your life today then make a declaration like Caleb did and believe that through Christ you are more than a conqueror (Rom 8:37).
