Because my servant Caleb had a different spirit and follows me whole-heartedly, I will bring him into the land he went to, and his descendants will inherit it. Numbers 14:24. This is the old testament book which explains the journey of Israel people and the leader was Moses.
The secrets about following God whole-heartedly in the cmportal.in – daily devotional verse
The Lord spoke to Moses by saying send each man from the 12 tribes of Israel to spy the land of Canaan which will be given to the children of Israel. Joshua and Caleb were two of the 12 tribes. Caleb was a faithful man, and he is the son of Jephunneh and the tribe of Judah. Then Moses sent 12 spies of Israel to Canaan by saying them to see the land whether it is good or bad, fertile or unfertile, the people are strong or weak, few or many. And he also says to bring the fruits of that land.
The 40 days journey of 12 spies to the land of Canaan in bible verse for me today:
After 40 days they returned from the Cannan, and the 12 spies came to Moses and also the congregation of Israel and said the land flowing with milk and honey and showed the fruit of the land. The 10 spies said that we couldn’t possess it because the people are strong and the cities are great.
But Caleb and Joshua gave confidence to Israel people by saying surely we will go and possess it and we will overcome it. But the 10 spies gave an evil report about that land by saying they are strong and look like giants and we look like grasshoppers before them.
The ten spies evil report made the Israel people have no faith in God, and they grumbled him by saying you have brought us from Egypt to die here. Then God was angry with them. But Moses pleased God to forgive them. Then God said they would surely not see the promised land because they provoked me.
Strengths of Caleb to inherit the promised land in today’s verse of the day:
But God says about Caleb that he had another spirit and follow me whole-heartedly and he will only enter into the promised land and also his descendants will inherit it. He has a positive attitude towards God. His inner character was pleasant to God. he had another spirit means courageous, bold, noble, generous, strong.
In Deuteronomy 1:36 god says Caleb and his descendants will inherit the promised land because he completely followed the Lord.
He is a faithful man who trusted in God to fulfill the promises of God, but the remaining doubted the Lord because of their small faith.
Except for Joshua and Caleb, all the Israel people wandered for forty years, and after that, Caleb was 85 years old, but he is strong enough and able to fight with Anakites and inherit the promised land.
In Joshua 15:14 says that Caleb has confidence that God will fulfill the promises. He built up his confidence through faith in the Lord.
How to fulfill God’s promises in our life daily bible promise:
In Deuteronomy 6:5 says we need to love the Lord with all our hearts and with all our souls. We need to give our hearts to the Lord so that he will observe our ways.
In Ephesians 6:6 says that we need to do the will of God from our bottom of hearts.
We need to follow the Lord and his commandments.
