The Journey with Ron Moore


Fear Not | Joshua 2:24 | Devotional

Joshua 2:24 They said to Joshua, "The LORD has surely given the whole land into our hands; all the people are melting in fear because of us."

Years prior to our passage today, Moses sent twelve spies to scope out the Promised Land. Two of the spies, Caleb and Joshua, came back and said, “Let’s take it! God will give it to us!” But the other ten said, “Not so fast. It is a great land but it is occupied with giants! We felt like grasshoppers compared to them.” The people gave into the fear, grumbled against God, and, as a result of their faithlessness, were sentenced to die in the desert.

Now, almost four decades later, things have changed. Joshua, Moses’ successor, sent his own team of spies into the land. After the report from Moses’ spies the Israelites were terrified of the people in the Promised Land. Now, the people in the Promised Land are “melting in fear” because of the Israelites.

When you are ready to step out in faith, God will provide all you need. The faithless will be vocal in their grumbling and emotional in their fear but in the end will die in their spiritual desert. But the faithful will take hold of God’s plan and enjoy the spiritual elation of experiencing God do amazing things. You just have to decide how you want to live— faithless or faithful?

Father, we don’t want to die in our personal spiritual desert and miss the great promises you have for us. Help us to step into your plan and give us strength and courage to continue follow you in faith. In Jesus name. Amen.
