What You See Is What You Get
And there we saw the giants the sons of Anak, which come of the giants: and we were in our own sight as grasshoppers, and so we were in their sight (Numbers 13:33).
God instructed Moses to send men to Canaan to search the land God had given them. When they got there, they saw the greatness of the land, the grapes were so large, it took two people to carry them, they brought back to the camp pomegranates and figs, but they also brought back to the camp a fearful report. Although God had promised them the land, He didn’t say they didn’t have to fight for what was theirs. Ten of the men saw themselves as grasshoppers and what they saw in themselves they influenced others to think likewise.
Their negative report brought fear to the camp; two men, Joshua and Caleb saw themselves as children of God, soldiers in the army of God, more than conquers. Ten men turned the positive faith of the children of Israel to negative faith. Negative faith will work the same way positive faith does. They believe they were defeated, they placed their trust in the giants rather than placing their trust in God.
When you’re having faith in God for something, it’s not good to be around people that will look at your circumstance more than they will look at God if you hang around them long enough, you to will begin to have their faith. As Christians, we have mountaintop experiences and we have valley experiences, when we’re in the valley, don’t deny where you are, but see yourself coming out of the valley. If you’re sick, see yourself healed, the same Word that saved you will heal you. If you’re bound by an addiction or a bad habit, see yourself being delivered. What you see is what you will receive whether it’s positive or negative.
When a thought comes to your mind that does not line up with what the Word of God says, you need to dismiss it, get your Bible and read to yourself what God’s says, and keep in mind, God’s Word has authority, as you say what you see in the Word of God, He will perform His Word, it will never return to Him void. See what the Word of God says about you, and not what Satan speak to you. See yourself as a child of God, see yourself blessed and favored of God, see yourself being submissive to the Word of God, see yourself as more than a conquer, see yourself as a soldier of God, see yourself being a winner and not being defeated in any area of your life or being.
