Lately I have been reflecting on what I call “Joshua-Caleb faith.” There were twelve “tried and true” leaders selected from each tribe to scout out the land God had promised the people of Israel. The fruit of the land was robust – grapes, pomegranates, figs. It took two men to carry one cluster of grapes on a pole! Yet, when these twelve strong leaders returned and gave their report, after showing off the incredible fruit, ten of them focused on all the reasons they shouldn’t go into the land, even though God had told them He was giving the land to them. So, I ask myself, am I refusing to accept any gifts from God in my life – grace, forgiveness, provision, moving forward to receive a blessing He has in store? I am inspired by God’s words about Caleb, “he follows me passionately.” (Numbers 13-14).
