John 3:16 "For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life. For God did not send his Son into the world to condemn the world, but to save the world through him."

David Wilkerson Today
by David Wilkerson
[May 19, 1931 - April 27, 2011]
Joshua and Caleb were among the twelve spies sent to spy out the Promised Land.
They didn't shed tears, bemoaning the conditions they had found. Rather, they
rejoiced after searching out the land and came back full of hope, faith and
Do you know Christians like this? They are always rejoicing. You know they are
enduring awful trials, yet they seem to know how to get hold of God in the
midst of their situation.
What about you? Are you always down, always complaining? Perhaps your personal
problems or family situations have possessed you and eaten up your soul.
Beloved, no matter what you are going through, you are precious to God. If you
come to Him with a repentant heart and a hungry soul, He will give you His

Joshua and Caleb had a revelation of their value in God's eyes and they knew
Israel was special to the Lord. That was the key to their hopeful, victorious
spirit. Joshua said, "If the Lord delight in us, then he will bring us into
this land, and give it us" (Numbers 14:8). In other words, "Because He delights
in us, we are as good as in the land already."
This is the same revelation David had: "He brought me out and delivered me
because He delighted in me." Likewise, every victorious Christian today has
this same revelation of the loving heavenly Father: "We can't fail! All our
enemies are meat for us, because we are precious to the Lord. He delights in
Let me reveal to you the great mercy of God in the preaching of Joshua and
Caleb. Israel had spent the night in rebellion, wallowing in unbelief, weeping
as though God had forsaken them, and finally appointing a captain to lead them
back to Egypt. Yet the Lord sent Joshua and Caleb to them and they told the
people, "In spite of your night of confusion — in spite of all your misery
and complaining — God delights in you. He will lead you forward. Fear not,
for you are precious to Him" (see Numbers 14:9).
