Stand & Be Counted

But My servant Caleb, because he has a different spirit in him and has followed Me fully, I will bring into the land where he went, and his descendants shall inherit it.    Numbers 14:24 NKJVS

What an awesome thing to have said about you! God calls you out by name and declares you faithful among all the masses!
Numbers 13-14 gives us this whole story and is amazing! It’s about twelve men sent out to “spy” the land God promised to give His people.

Out of the twelve, Caleb was a guy that would stand up and declare the promises of God despite all odds. Caleb had a mindset of – if God said it then that settled it. Now the odds were stacked against Caleb. The promise of God had obstacles that simply seemed immovable. There were doubters out of the twelve that rallied others against God’s plan. As a result, Caleb had to solidify three things:

Do I go with everyone else’s opinion?
Do I trust what God said?
Will I stand up for what I believe in?

Caleb trusted what God said and he stood up for what he believed in. His stance built a common ground where others followed. For example, Joshua ended up standing for God with him.

I know there are Caleb’s and Caleb-“ets” (godly sisters) out there in this world and you may be one of them!
