But God Is Good!

When God Calls Us Out Into the Unknown 

  1. We must clearly __________________________.

The Lord said to Moses, “Send some men to explore the land of Canaan, which I am giving to the Israelites. From each ancestral tribe send one of its leaders.”  – Numbers 13:1 (NIV)

Hearing from God involves:

  1. Aligning with Scripture
  2. Discovering your S.H.A.P.E.
  3. Getting insight from godly counselors
  4. Prayer

 

2. We have two choices

A. Focus on __________ – “Life Is Messy”

But the men who had gone up with him said, “We can’t attack those people; they are stronger than we are.” And they spread among the Israelites a bad report about the land they had explored. They said, “The land we explored devours those living in it. All the people we saw there are of great size. We saw the Nephilim there (the descendants of Anak come from the Nephilim). We seemed like grasshoppers in our own eyes, and we looked the same to them.” -Numbers 13:31-33 (NIV)

Fear ______________ reality and ____________________the negative. 

B.Walk by ____________ – “But God Is Good!”

Joshua son of Nun and Caleb son of Jephunneh, who were among those who had explored the land, tore their clothes and said to the entire Israelite assembly, “The land we passed through and explored is exceedingly good.  If the Lord is pleased with us, he will lead us into that land, a land flowing with milk and honey, and will give it to us. Only do not rebel against the Lord. And do not be afraid of the people of the land, because we will devour them. Their protection is gone, but the Lord is with us. Do not be afraid of them.” – Numbers 14:6-9 (NIV)

Faith: trust that if God is in it, He will ______________________!

MAKING IT PERSONAL
