"Now then, just as the Lord promised, he has kept me alive for forty-five years since the time he said this to Moses, while Israel moved about in the desert. So here I am today, eighty-five years old! I am still as strong today as the day Moses sent me out; I'm just as vigorous to go out to battle now as I was then. Now give me this hill country that the Lord promised me that day."
Insight: Caleb was one of two spies who, forty-five years earlier, believed God would deliver on His promises while the rest of his peers trusted their own understanding and gave in to fear over faith. God honored Caleb's faith & made him a promise that He kept forty-five years later. When God makes a promise, He always delivers. And He gives us the strength we need to make it to that day.
Prayer: God, help me to have a spirit like Caleb - trusting You when everything or everyone seems to say otherwise. Thank you that You always keep Your promises and You sustain us until that day.
