ACCELERATING YOUR DREAM

CHANGE - CHANGE - CHANGE

We all know it has to come THROUGH everyone of us in order to "Accelerate The Vision" -- INCREASE!

CHANGE WHAT?

NUMBERS 13:1-33

We have to CHANGE our "Mindset" FIRST ....

It’s Real Easy To Listen To What We Need To Do Taught To Us ....

It’s real easy to sit around & talk about what we need to do ....

It’s Real Easy To Even Know What We Individually Need To Change In Our Lives In Order To Give The Time & Resources To Accelerate The Vision .....

IT IS AN ENTIRELY DIFFERENT MATTER TO DO IT!

All the guys who went to SPY out the land were LEADERS OF ISRAEL ...

LEADERS have influence -- everything rises & falls on LEADERSHIP -- INFLUENCE ....

Our "Influence" is going to flow out of what we "REALLY" think, feel & personally are willing "TO DO" ....

SO -- What influences our influence ....

1] HOW WE SEE WHAT WE SEE

Numbers 13:28 (NKJV)

Nevertheless the people who dwell in the land are strong; the cities are fortified and very large; moreover we saw the descendants of Anak there.

NEVERTHELESS -- "This is our conclusion." - "This is what I think" - "This is MY opinion"

THIS IS ALWAYS THE LANGUAGE OF UNBELIEF -- we saw; we are not able; we are not as strong as they -- the conclusion of the natural man who walks by sight instead of faith.

People are strong - TODAY - whats the use, people are so caught up in their own lives, too busy for church & God

Cities are fortified and very large - TODAY - how do we reach so many with so few of us

Giants live there - TODAY - obstacles of we’re so busy, it’s going to cost money

THE LANGUAGE OF FAITH IS ALWAYS OPTIMISTIC .... Joshua & Caleb agreed with what they saw but disagreed with what they said concerning their "INABILITY" to Possess The Land God Prophetically Promised ...

They Saw the same thing but with a different set of eyes .... "FAITH EYES"

Numbers 14:7-9 (NKJV)

and they spoke to all the congregation of the children of Israel, saying: "The land we passed through to spy out is an exceedingly good land. If the Lord delights in us, then He will bring us into this land and give it to us, ‘a land which flows with milk and honey.’ Only do not rebel against the Lord, nor fear the people of the land, for they are our bread; their protection has departed from them, and the Lord is with us. Do not fear them."

We Are Well Able

The Lord Will Bring Us Into The Land, And Give It To Us

The Giants Are Bread For Us; They Are Defenseless; The Lord Is With Us; Do Not Fear

IN OTHER WORDS ....

PEOPLE ARE STRONG -- BUT -- God is pleased with us, HE will move on the people as we meet them

CITIES ARE FORTIFIED -- BUT -- Let go of your fear / God will give us the entrance into the city

GIANTS LIVE THERE -- BUT -- They hold our provision, promised blessings so let go of our own rebel attitudes & obey God beyond our own "Well Built Personal Zones"

This Story Is Proof Positive That We Can Lose Out On The Vision God Promises Thru Fear & Rebellion To Going After It ....

DEUTERONOMY 1:20-38

Look -- If They Had Obeyed God & Moses & Not Demanded The Spies Be Sent In First To Make Sure God Is Right -- Here’s What Could Have Been Theirs ....
