Numbers 14:36-38, And the men, which Moses sent to search the land, who returned, and made all the congregation to murmur against him, by bringing up a slander upon a land. Even those men that did bring up the evil report upon the land, died by the plague before the Lord. But Joshua the son of Nun, and Caleb the son of Jephunneh with were of the men that went to search the land, lived still.
Many of us get close to people to find out whats going on in their lives. Why do we do this and why do we allow people to use us for this type of spying? The only spy I want to be is for God, God used two groups of people to spy out the land, the first group brought back a negative report and Caleb and Joshua brought back a good report. Why was that?
The difference was the way Caleb and Joshua looked at the situation and they weren’t trying to make someone look bad and start rumors causing people to grumble against you, they believe what they saw and that the land of milk of honey was obtainable by listening to and trusting our heavenly Father.
Don’t be afraid when people snoop remember those who did this against God and Joshua and Caleb never saw the promise land and died in plague so keep snooping if you are able to handle thee decree of God.
Forever His Servant,
