God said He would give the Israelites a new land. So Moses sent twelve men to look at the land.
When the twelve men returned, they said it was a very good land. The men showed Moses some of the fruit from the land. But ten of the men said that the people living there were very big and powerful. These men said (verse 31), ?We can?t fight those people! They are much stronger than we are.?
These ten men forgot how God had brought them out of Egypt. They forgot how God had parted the water of the Red Sea. They did not believe that God could help them conquer the new land.
But two of the men, Joshua and Caleb, remembered how God had helped them in the past. In verse 30, Caleb said, ?We should go up and take that land for ourselves. We can easily take that land.?
When we face difficulties, we sometimes forget how God has helped us in the past. We need to remember that we can do awesome things with God?s help.
