And Caleb stilled the people before Moses, and said, Let us go up at once, and possess it; for we are well able to overcome it.
Numbers 13:30 KJV
It is not a surprise that someone else saw a different thing in the midst of the evil majority report. Someone or something must have affected his perception of the land of promise. That perception is the stuff great pioneers are made up of. This is how Jeremiah puts that: ” Blessed is the man that trusteth in the LORD, and whose hope the LORD is( 17:7 ). David expressed the same sentiments in Psalm 9:10; 118:8. Jesus did same in Mk.5:36. Forty years after, Caleb told Joshua the steadiness of his faith in this words: ”
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 (Josh14:10-11). You can’t blame the man. Faith keeps renewing your youth like the eagles. 1 These.5:24 sums up what happened to Caleb. May your trust in God also produce results beyond ordinary expectations. Its not what others see. Its what you see. Make a choice for your generation.
