Numbers 13:30 Then Caleb quieted the people before Moses, and said, "Let us go up at once and take possession, for we are well able to overcome it."
As believers in Christ Jesus, we are "well able" to overcome any obstacle that is placed before us through the power of the Holy Spirit that lives within us. Do you really believe? Jesus often said, "be it unto you according to your faith". If we see the excess pounds on our bodies as the mountain before us and believe that what Jesus says is true, we can speak to the mountain and it will be gone! (Mark 11:23) What's holding us back from being the successful people that God has created us to be? Sometimes it's fear of failure; or the comfort that we find in our friendships with food; or lack of self-discipline. All of these are simply "giants" in our land of success. God told the Israelites in Deuteronomy 9:1-3 that they knew about the giants in their Promised Land and how big they were, but that He was going before them to cause them to be successful in overcoming the giants. It's the same with us today, friends, God has gone before us into this day to cause us to be successful. Now, go forth, in the power of His Spirit, to victory!
