Are you afraid of leaving the place you’ve always been? This was the mindset of the Israelites – especially after spying out the Land Promised to them. When Moses sent the 12 men to spy out the land, the reports brought back by 10 of them were discouraging – strong cities, and giants! (thus the illustratively huge bed on the platform behind Pastor Mike!)
To enter into the Freedom God has for us, we need 3 things:
1) to know about our Past,
2) have People to support and encourage us,
3) and the Perspective of God’s faithfulness.
Additionally, we need to, as David did, strengthen ourselves in the Lord – our relationship with God must be first!
Pastor Mike also shares a personal struggle that God is carrying him through.
