Dig Deeper

  • Read Numbers 13:26-33
  • In your opinion, what does it mean that the spies found the land exactly as God described it?
  • In the land of Egypt, the spies had been slaves.  In your opinion, are they still thinking like slaves when they give their report?  Why or why not?
  • Why do you think Caleb was able to see the same things the other spies saw and have a different reaction?  What does this teach you about your daily mindset?
  • Read Numbers 14:1-4
  • Notice how people’s fears make them nostalgic for the past.  Do you really think they would be happier as slaves in Egypt?  Why did they think this way?
  • Notice they want to change leadership.  In your experience, when does changing leadership help and when does it hurt?  Why?
  • Read Numbers 14:5-9
  • Notice how Moses, Aaron, Caleb and Joshua all plead with the people.  Has God put you in someone’s life to encourage them to see God’s promise past their fears?
  • Notice how the spies thought the land devoured the people, but Caleb and Joshua say they can devour the people.  What spiritual exercises can you do that will make you better able to trust God?
  • What is God laying before you right now that is an opportunity for you to take?
