The story is told of a group of people in Kansas who after a long drought came together to pray for rain. As they met, they discovered only one young gal had brought an umbrella with her. (Source unknown). … More
God makes it clear to the Israelites that the whole generation which came up to Kadesh-barnea and turned back in unbelief will die (vv. 32-35). Only two men of the old generation will be permitted to enter the promised land. They are Joshua and Caleb (vv. 36-38). They were different than the other spies because they believed God and brought back an accurate and good report. Caleb walked up and down the land and claimed the land where the giants lived. “This is what I want,” he said, and God gave it to him for an inheritance. He says that Joshua will also go in (v. 38).
We should be asking our self what we want of God. If we think we can sit on the sidelines and get it we are wrong. There is a great deal said in the Scriptures about the Christian’s walk and very little said about the Christian’s sitting down. Joshua became the leader to succeed Moses because he was a man of experience and a man who wholly followed God. Faith was the essential thing.
If I want God’s blessing I must step out in faith for Him, not because I have to but because I want to. I think there is a very fine line between true faith and presumption like the Israelites had.
