What do you see?

“…we saw the giants, the sons of Anak…and we were in our own sight as grasshoppers…” Num 13:33 KJV [italics & emphasis mine]

where we stand determines what we see” goes the old-adage, and what we see determines our choice of action and consequently destiny. A convicted killer responding to a journalist as to why he killed said that people hated, be-little and despised him. While this answer may have come from a complex psychological paradox of the human mind, the bottom line is, he acted based on what he saw in his mind-and so do we all the time.

WHAT DO YOU SEE? WHERE DO YOU STAND when you see what you see? The stubborn Hebrews in the text above chose to stand in the natural and allowed the natural to determine their belief and hence their action [needless to say thousands died on that day]. If we are to overcome our life challenges, we need to see ourselves the way God sees us-no less no more; and God sees as “…chosen generation, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, His own special people…” [1 Pet 2:9 NKJV]
