I shall drive them out.
Caleb’s faith…one of the two spies that encouraged the Hebrews to take the promised land. Forty-five years later, at 85 finally is promised his inheritance in the promised land.
” I am this day fourscore and five years old.
As yet I am as strong this day as I was in the day that Moses sent me: as my strength was then, even so is my strength now, for war, both to go out, and to come in.
Now therefore give me this mountain, whereof the Lord spake in that day; for thou heardest in that day how the Anakims were there, and that the cities were great and fenced: if so be the Lord will be with me, then I shall be able to drive them out, as the Lord said.”
This is faith: At 85 going to do the Lords bidding. “I shall be able to drive them out, as the Lord said.”
Still strong, able to fight, willing to fight.
” I wholly followed the Lord my God.”
If we would learn to wholly follow the Lord, we could be doing great exploits, seeing the miracles, signs and wonders following us.
What is it that holds you back? There must be something hindering us in only believing. Something that gets in the way of simple child like faith.
” Except ye be converted, and become as little children, “
We need to trust like our children trust….just relie on the Father.
Lord, help me to trust in You.
