Don't become a victim of the Grasshopper Mentality.
30 Then Caleb silenced the people before Moses and said,
We are often stuck in the wilderness not lack of resource, poor education or grace but for grasshopper mentality.
People with Grasshopper Mentality:
They focus on the power of the people.
They focus on the problems instead of possibilities.
They prevent other people for making progress.
Having a feeling of inferiority which causes you to perceive everything that happens in your life as a reflection of what you cannot do or what you cannot be.
Having a small view of yourself.
A grasshopper mentality is the death of dreams and goals, and usually prevents people from having big dreams and plans for the future. The way to overcome it is to read and listen to positive instead of negative, every day. Step outside of your comfort zone.
Do you see Giants? Here's a daily devotional written by Poh Fang Chia,Our Daily Bread.
The Small Giant (The Lord . . . will deliver me. —1 Samuel 17:37). The towering enemy strides into the Valley of Elah. He stands 9 feet tall, and his coat of armor, made of many small bronze plates, glimmers in the sunlight. The shaft of his spear is wrapped with cords so it can spin through the air and be thrown with greater distance and accuracy. Goliath looks invincible.
But David knows better. While Goliath may look like a giant and act like a giant, in contrast to the living God he is small. David has a right view of God and therefore a right view of the circumstances. He sees Goliath as one who is defying the armies of the living God. He confidently appears before Goliath in his shepherd’s clothes, armed with only his staff, five stones, and a sling. His confidence is not in what he has but in who is with him (v.45).
What “Goliath” are you facing right now? It may be an impossible situation at work, a financial difficulty, or a broken relationship. With God all things are small in comparison. Nothing is too big for Him. The words of the hymn writer Charles Wesley remind us: “Faith, mighty faith, the promise sees, and looks to that alone; laughs at impossibilities, and cries it shall be done.” God is able to deliver you if that’s His desire, and He may do so in ways you don’t expect.
Don't tell God how big your giants are. Tell your giants how big your God is.
