Caleb's trust in God came at a time when the nation was living in doubt. They were tired of their wanderings, yet unwilling to yield themselves to God. Standing on faith in the faithless was the mark of Calebs character. He was not afraid to separate from the crowd and stand for right.
Caleb was honored by God as the distribution of land occurred. Furthermore his name is recorded in scripture that every generation would know of his faith and his character. Joshua 14:14 records tha Caleb followed the Lord God of Israel wholeheartedly. What a testimony to have recorded!
Caleb stand out in scripture as one we could pattern our life of faith after. To be able to stand firm when the tides of opinion are against you and to speak truth when it is not popular is something we should aspire to as believers. I believe God offers a special blessing to those who do. Will you take the challenge to follow God wholeheartedly and leave your welfare in His hands?
May God richly bless you as you seek Him and as you serve Him.
