Bible Reading: Numbers 14:6-9
Joshua son of Nun and Caleb son of Jephunneh, who were among those who had explored the land, tore their clothes and said to the entire Israelite assembly, “The land we passed through and explored is exceedingly good. If the Lord is pleased with us, he will lead us into that land, a land flowing with milk and honey, and will give it to us. Only do not rebel against the Lord. And do not be afraid of the people of the land, because we will devour them. Their protection is gone, but the Lord is with us. Do not be afraid of them.”
Thought for Reflection
Caleb knew that with God all things are possible and so if he calls us to do something we can trust him to provide the resources. He had to stand against fear, cynicism and lack of vision with those great words “the Lord is with us. Do not be afraid…” Is God calling us to stand against the fashionable view of what is possible? Do not be afraid!
Lord give me the vision of Caleb today so that in your strength and with your provision I can do anything you call me to.
