You Will Look At the Future with Eyes of Fear or Eyes of Faith (4 of 4)
Series: Faith for the Future
This morning I want to invite your attention to Numbers 13:27-33, the Old Testament book of Numbers. And today we want to talk about “Faith For The Future”. This is the fourth in a series of messages on faith for the future and today we are going to look at how we see the future.

We are going to see from the story in Numbers 13 the difference in looking at the same situation, the same set of circumstances with the eyes of fear or looking at those same set of circumstances with the eyes of faith. And we are going to see the results of each of those.
