All who wander are not lost
Wandering around is not a sign you are lost. In your heart, you probably know where God wants you to go. God has given us goals. God has been clear what they are. It is not an issue that we are clueless.
We need to be bold. Knowing where to go doesn’t mean we will get there. We have to start the journey. We have to be committed to getting to the destination. We have to have faith and resolve to get there.
Jesus gives us faith and courage.
Let’s head on up to the promised land. God has given it to us. God has a goal for us. Our destination is the promised land. It is ours for the taking.
- Be brave.
- Be bold.
- God is with us.
All who wander are not lost. Israel knew how to get to the promised land. They didn’t have the courage to go.
Then Caleb quieted the people in the presence of Moses and said, “Let’s go up now and take possession of the land because we can certainly conquer it!” But the men who had gone up with him responded, “We can’t attack the people because they are stronger than we are!” 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. 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.” | Christian Standard Bible. (2020).

Consider this outcome. This is serious. May God give us the courage we need through His Holy Spirit. May boldness be ours. May we enter the promised land.
So the men Moses sent to scout out the land, and who returned and incited the entire community to complain about him by spreading a negative report about the land—those men who spread the negative report about the land were struck down by Yahweh. Only Joshua son of Nun and Caleb son of Jephunneh remained alive of those men who went to scout out the land. | Christian Standard Bible. (2020). (Numbers 14:36–38).
