I didn't have a good plan. I had planned out every other detail of that trip, but this was me being spontaneous. I'm glad I did, because I have never had the chance to go back and visit yet. I wish I had a better plan. Sometimes we can have bad plans and God works despite them and sometimes we have wonderful plans and nothing works out. Sometimes our plans are just puny!
In Numbers 13 the spies are sent to Canaan. The land is great, everything that God has promised it should be. Joshua and Caleb agree that the risk is worth the reward. However, the other 10 can only focus on one aspect. They look like grasshoppers in their own site next to the Nephilim and even to the Nephilim they look this way. Nephilim were known from a specific area and were basically Giants.
In order to take this land they would have to go up against men 10 times their size that could crush them easily. So really you can defeat Pharaoh and the entire Egyptian empire. You can walk on dry ground through the parted Red Sea. You can watch food fall from the sky and water gush from rocks. They had heard the stories of an entire world being flooded, languages changing, not to mention the unique way that a Hebrew found his way as a great commander within the Egyptian empire.
But their plan is puny and they cannot see past a few giants. They cannot see God and can't trust in his power. And so they stir up the report and let it spread throughout all the Israelites and effectively killing the plan to enter the promised land all together. They would wander around until they would all die except for Joshua and Caleb.
They gave up milk and honey and great land due to a puny plan and a great lack of faith
