How soon do we forget how great God is? God takes us out of Egypt without a scratch, does miracles in the desert, but when things get scary, we shrink back, as he tells us to move forward to conquer the land. “Didn’t you see those giants Lord? We can’t overcome them!” Where is Caleb when we come up against the whispers of the enemy? Today, I am your Caleb! Do not hesitate, move in and conquer the land that God has set before you.
One interesting thing I noticed as I was reading the account of the spies sent into the promised land, they were all leaders of their tribes. Instead of being strong and courageous, they were scared, even though God was the one who told them to go. When you feel weak, and can not do it on your own, give it to God, and let him be your strength. Just imagine the doors that will be opened because God is the one delivering you. Besides, you don’t want God giving your promise to someone else, do you?
Listen to this: But Caleb quieted the people before Moses and said, “Let us go up at once and occupy it, for we are well able to overcome it.” Numbers 13:30
Don’t listen to this: Then the men who had gone up with him said, “We are not able to go up against the people, for they are stronger than we are.” Numbers 13:31
