Have you ever felt like a grasshopper in a situation? Have you looked at what has been promised to you but feel like there are too many giants in your way to get what’s promised? We’ve probably all been there at one time or another, maybe you’re there now. It’s in times like these we need to get an attitude, just like Caleb.

After exploring the land they found it was a land full of plenty and promise. They knew if they could just take the land then life would be easy in that land, however, the giants were intimidating. The majority of the spies were negative; they didn’t have the confidence that they could defeat the giants. Caleb, however, had an attitude. It was a conquering attitude. “But Caleb reassured the people as they stood before Moses. Let us go up at once and possess it, he said, for we are well able to conquer it!”

When it comes to conquering and possessing it takes someone with an attitude. Someone who won’t be afraid of the giants. I want to encourage you this week, get an attitude! Don’t let the giants stop you from what God has promised you. You’ve got a land flowing with milk and honey if you can defeat the giants. Don’t disqualify yourself by saying you can’t do it, or you’re not qualified, you’re not smart enough, you don’t have enough money, get an attitude! Go up and possess your land, with the Lord’s help, you’re well able to conquer any giant that would even think of getting in your way.

Giant fearers will never get anywhere. If you want to get somewhere you can’t expect that there will never be any giants in your way. Will people be negative towards what you’re doing? Will they think you’re crazy? I can guarantee you some will, but that’s okay because you’ve got a conquering attitude and you will possess what’s been promised to you. Don’t lose out because of fear, get an attitude and step out and take the land!
