"These are all warning markers-DANGER -in our history book, written down so that we don't repeat their mistakes. Our positions in the story are parallel-they at the beginning, we at the end - and we are just as capable of messing it up as they were. Don't be so naive and self-confident. You're not exempt..." I Cor. 10:11-12 (The Message Bible). Just like these multitudes of Israelites that left Egypt (bondage) for Canaan (God's fullness, completeness and blessings), you as a Christian and believer in Jesus Christ are embarking on a similar spiritual journey. God has offered a Canaan Land opportunity to you as an individual, but the opposition to your seizing it can be threatening and formidable. What are the oppositions that God has allowed in your path? Maybe it is health issues, loss of relationships, joblessness, financial hardship, business failure or some other severe trials? Are there things that have you trapped in bitterness and discouragement? Then the story in this book may really apply to where you are right now with God. You may be getting ready to have your door opened to enter into your Promised Land. However, you are well aware of the giants and Canaanites with heavily fortified cities that you will be coming against if this door opens up for you. Will you affirm the giants and Canaanites with heavily fortified cities, like the generation that perished or the promise and faith of Joshua and Caleb?
