I love the fourteenth chapter where Caleb, Joshua’s fellow spy, who believed God and brought back a good report forty-five years before, doesn’t site his age or possibly frailty as a reason for not possessing what had been given to him by Moses. When by right he could have stepped back and let the young folks get the job done, Caleb fought along side the men of fighting age and conquered the land given to the tribe of Judea

Reading his words are thrilling and inspiring. My desire is that I follow after Caleb’s spirit and not die before I’m dead, that I continue to work at possessing what God has promised before the breath of life leaves my body and releases my spirit.

6 …Caleb son of Jephunneh the Kenizzite said to him, You know what the Lord said to Moses the man of God concerning me and you in Kadesh-barnea. 7 Forty-years old was I when Moses the servant of the Lord sent me from Kadesh-barnea to scout out the land. And I brought him a report as it was in my heart. 8 But my brethren who went up with me made the hearts of the people melt; yet I wholly followed the Lord my God.

9 And Moses swore on that day, surely the land on which your feet have walked shall be an inheritance to you and your children always, because you have wholly followed the Lord my God. 10 And now, behold, the Lord has kept me alive, as He said, these forty-five years since the Lord spoke this word to Moses, while the Israelites wandered in the wilderness; and now, behold, I am this day eighty-five years old.
11 Yet I am as strong today as I was the day Moses sent me; as my strength was then, so is my strength now for war and to go out and to come in. 12 So now give me this hill country of which the Lord spoke that day. (AMP)

Caleb’s words send chills down my spine! They are just awesome.
