“I am still as strong today as the day Moses sent me out;
I’m just as vigorous to go out to battle now as I was then.
Now give me this hill country that the Lord promised me
Joshua 14:11, 12
Because Caleb had faith in God, he asked for the mountain God had
He didn’t ask for the mountain because he was strong enough.
Giants still lived there and they were much stronger than Caleb and his tribe.
Where is your faith at today?
There is a direct correlation between the faith we have and the type of
requests we make. We see this pattern all throughout scripture.
Caleb’s faith in God determined his request. Even at eighty-five years
of age, he believed he could defeat giants!
Faith in God gets us to be bolder and more radical in our requests.
It’s also interesting to note, that God promised Caleb, Hebron but giants lived
there. In his own strength, Caleb would not be able to possess what God
promised him. It’s only by faith he would be able to receive what God promised him.
And that’s true for us too. God wants us to trust in Him
completely. It’s only by faith in God that we can receive what God has for us.
So as I come to the end of the post, I want to challenge you to look at your faith.
If you are struggling with your faith ask God for help.
It’s time to ask Him for your “mountain”.
And no matter what giants stand in the way trust God to fight on your behalf
as you claim your mountain.
Bless you friends
