They reported to Moses, “We went into the land where you sent us. Indeed it is flowing with milk and honey, and here is some of its fruit.
Numbers 13:27 (CSB)

When your outnumbered stop…

1.         Looking at your obstacles

However, the people living in the land are strong, and the cities are large and fortified. We also saw the descendants of Anak there.
Numbers 13:28 (CSB)

2.         Listening to the majority

But the men who had gone up with him responded, “We can’t attack the people because they are stronger than we are!” 32 So they gave a negative report to the Israelites about the land they had scouted: “The land we passed through to explore is one that devours its inhabitants, and all the people we saw in it are men of great size. 33 We even saw the Nephilim there—the descendants of Anak come from the Nephilim! To ourselves we seemed like grasshoppers, and we must have seemed the same to them.”
Numbers 13:31-33 (CSB)

GOD IS FOR ME

What then shall we say to these things? If God is for us, who can be against us?
Romans 8:31 (ESV)

GOD IS IN ME

Christ in you, the hope of glory.
Colossians 1:27 (ESV)

GOD IS WITH ME

The LORD is with me; I will not be afraid.
Psalm 118:6 (NIV)

3.         Living in the past

Then the whole community broke into loud cries, and the people wept that night. 2 All the Israelites complained about Moses and Aaron, and the whole community told them, “If only we had died in the land of Egypt, or if only we had died in this wilderness! 3 Why is the Lord bringing us into this land to die by the sword? Our wives and children will become plunder. Wouldn’t it be better for us to go back to Egypt?” 4 So they said to one another, “Let’s appoint a leader and go back to Egypt.”
Numbers 14:1-4 (CSB)
