“The people refused to enter the pleasant land, for they wouldn’t believe His promise to care for them. Instead, they grumbled in their tents and refused to obey the Lord.” – Psalm 106:24-25 (NLT)

People say that seeing is believing – once you see something’s for real, then you’ll believe it. However, there’s another side to believing and that’s believing without seeing, a.k.a. faith.

In the passage above, God wanted to give the Israelites the Promised Land, a land filled with all kinds of good things for them to enjoy. However, while in the wilderness, they refused to enter that pleasant land because they didn’t believe God would be true to His word to take care of them. They couldn’t yet see God fulfilling His promise. So, instead of obeying Him and following Him into this Promised Land, they got angry, whined, and complained.

Do you believe God has something great for your life? Do you believe He is good and loves you so much that He wants to bless you outrageously? Maybe your life experiences, family, or friends have told you otherwise. However, I’m here to tell you that God does love you a lot and He has a lifetime of His blessings for you.

I'm not saying God will make your life a piece of cake and if you believe, all your troubles will go away. We’ll inevitably face hard times throughout life, but it's actually in our hard times that God teaches, grows and matures us the most.

So, here’s what I’m asking: Are you claiming all of God's promises for your life? If you have a hard time believing or obeying God, ask Him to help you. He will, and He’ll bring you into the land He has promised for you – a place in which you know Him more personally, He provides for all your needs and then some, and you find more joy, love, and meaning in your life than you can imagine!

Have a beautiful weekend!
