A healing perspective

"God is love," I John 4:8. we are assured. Yet this truth becomes evident only as we let God guide every phase of our lives. Human reasoning, by its very nature, is based on a limited outlook and tends to distrust God's plan of abundant good for His children.

This was illustrated in the attitude of the spies sent out by Moses. When they returned from a forty-day search throughout the land of Canaan they told him, "We came unto the land whither thou sentest us, and surely it floweth with milk and honey; and this is the fruit of it." Num. 13:27. (Among other fruits, they had brought back a cluster of grapes so heavy that two men were necessary to carry it!) In view of this promising report, did the children of Israel go and possess the land of Canaan then, as they apparently could have done?

Looking back? Or pressing forward?
