SUMMARY: Wholehearted devotion
OVERVIEW: Caleb waited patiently for his inheritance and was ready to claim it despite his age. Caleb has the faith and patience spoken of in Hebrews 6:12.
BIG IDEA: Live courageously, knowing that God is with you.
KEY VERSE: Joshua 14:9 (Caleb to Joshua)
So that day Moses solemnly promised me, “The land of Canaan on which you were just walking will be your grant of land and that of your descendants forever, because you wholeheartedly followed the Lord my God.”
IF GOD WROTE YOU A LETTER
I’m ready for you to see what life is like when you follow me wholeheartedly. Have you imagined how that might be? I have. I want to show you my blessing and my presence. I want you to say ‘yes’ to me regardless of what others think or how they respond. I want you to pour out your heart to me and live with an abandoned faith because of who I am. I want your vision for life to increase with age. I want your experience to grow exponentially because you witness more and more of my work and faithfulness.
Follow me today. And wake up tomorrow with your eyes wide and your heart ready to obey. May Caleb’s life inspire you to trust me more. Even in his old age, he was eager to go to battle and take what I promised. His bravado was not based on his strength but my character. Because I promised, he knew I would provide. Live with that kind of faith today.
Give yourself wholeheartedly to God. Submit to God and surrender your life, your fears, your hopes, and your dreams. And when you do, you can trust that God will provide.
