Numbers 13:32 (KJV): And they brought up an evil report of the land which they had searched unto the children of Israel, saying, The land, through which we have gone to search it, is a land that eateth up the inhabitants thereof; and all the people that we saw in it are men of a great stature.
In our theme scripture, God called the feedback of the spies an evil report. Although these men were right in their observations, they were not necessarily TRUE.
Many people seek for evidence in order to approve something as true. This is a recipe for deception because we live in a world where there is alot of evidence of things that are not true.
It was a fact that the walls of the city were great; it was a fact that great giants lived there BUT was it true that they could not defeat its inhabitants? No.
Truth is not necessarily what you see with your eyes or what is reasonably accurate. Truth is the person of God.
Every time you see truth, you behold God and the testimony of His Word.
This is what Joshua and Caleb beheld. They did not see great walls, they saw the God who penetrates any barrier. They did not see the sons of Anak, they saw the God who slays giants.
Behold truth. Behold God. Hallelujah!

Truth is not necessarily what you see with your eyes or what is reasonably accurate. Truth is the person of God. Every time you see truth, you behold God and the testimony of His Word.
PRAYER: Loving father, I am grateful for your Word. It is the foundation of my victory, my source of strength and the affirmation on which I stand. I look at life through the eyes of the Word and behold truth every day. Nothing in this world can shake me because my walk is one of faith. Regardless of what is around me, I have created my world by the power of your Word and I see its realities manifest every day. In Jesus’ name. Amen.
