Joshua 1:9
“Have I not commanded you? Be strong and courageous. Do not be frightened, and do not be dismayed, for the Lord your God is with you wherever you go.”

 One day Monkey called all the animals in the forest to the great oak tree. “I’m sure you’ll all agree,” said Monkey to the crowd, “monkeys are the greatest when it comes to tree climbing, but frogs are so small and slimy, they are terrible at climbing trees.” He then challenged all the frogs to race up the oak. The first one to the top will be declared king of the forest. Monkey had confidence all the frogs would fail to make it to the top of the tree. The humble group assembled at the base of the tree and began to climb its mighty trunk. “They’ll never make it,” shouted Monkey! “No, they won’t,” called fox, “they’re all to small and slimy.” Eventually all the other animals joined in, mocking the frogs and discouraging them in their exploit.

 
One by one the little frogs began to fall to the ground. Some had hardly taken and few steps when the ridicule of the crowd so discouraged them that they simply gave up. Eventually, there were only four brave frogs left climbing the great oak tree. By now they were halfway up its trunk. The jeers and scorns of the crowd continued, “They’ll never make it! They’re too small! They’re too weak, too slimy!” On it went until eventually two of the remaining frogs just gave up and slid down the tree trunk. The remaining two battled and battled against the steep effort of the climb and the intense discouragement from below. Almost at the top one of the last two frogs stopped. “That’s it, he’s finished,” yelled Monkey! With that, the little frog gave up and allowed himself to slip down to the earth below. Only one little frog remained. He kept going, step by step, slow but steady. “You’ll never make it,” called someone below. The crowd joined in calling for his failure. Finally, the brave little guy victoriously reached the top of the tree. He’d made it, despite the ridicule and discouragement. The crowd was silent. No one believed he’d make it. Some asked, how did he do it? Why did he succeed, and the others fail? Owl answered, “Because he is deaf.”
 
A short time after leaving Egypt, the Israelites came to the border of Canaan. The Lord said to Moses, “Send men to spy out the land of Canaan, which I am giving to the people of Israel.” So, Moses sent out 12 spies, one from each tribe of Israel. They returned with the report, “The land is a land that flows with milk and honey, and this is its fruit. But, all the people that we saw in it are of great height. We seemed like grasshoppers in their sight.” Only two spies gave a positive report, “Let us go up at once and occupy it, for we are well able to overcome it.” Caleb and Joshua were the only two men of that entire generation who eventually entered the Promised Land to eat of its fruit.
 
If you’re facing a great climb today hear this: you will make it! Be deaf to the discouragements and negative words around you. Listen only to God’s Word. God said to Joshua, “Be strong and courageous. Do not be frightened, and do not be dismayed, for the Lord your God is with you wherever you go.” Your God is with you. Do not allow popular opinion to undermine God’s plans for you. He is your source and your resource. You will make it! And, when you pass through the waters, he will be with you, they shall not overwhelm you. When you walk through fire you shall not be burned, and the flame shall not consume you. For he is the Lord your God. 
 
God-tracking is remaining positive in God’s power, to the end
 
READ ALL ABOUT IT 
Numbers 13
Joshua 1:7-9
Isaiah 43:1-2
 
DON’T GIVE UP, LOOK UP & PRAY
 
I choose to not give up but look up and climb this tree with confidence that you who promised are faithful, and you will do it.
 
“Dear Lord, I feel so discouraged and demotivated today. Those around me have criticised me and mocked me. Their words of discouragement have begun to undermine my sense of your call on my life. Lord, I’m sorry for listening to popular opinion. Today I choose to not give up but look up, and climb this tree with confidence that you who promised are faithful, and you will do it. Holy Spirit, you are my source and resource. You are my energy, my stamina and my inspiration. Therefore, I close my ears to jeers of the crowd and fix my eyes on you, Jesus. Amen.”
