Standing Out From The Crowd
But because my servant Caleb has a different spirit and follows me wholeheartedly. I will bring him into the land he went to, and his descendants will inherit it.
Israel was faced with impossible odds when they looked at what was before them in the land of Cannan. God promised them the land and Caleb and Joshua saw the great potential it had for their families.
Caleb was not afraid because He trusted God at His word. He knew that God would protect them and bring them into the Promise Land, they just needed to believe.
Caleb stood out amongst the Israelites and did not follow their way of thinking, so they wanted to stone him. God intervened and showed His glory!
If you are in a situation where you are standing out from the crowd for Jesus just remember how God blessed Caleb. God is on your side!
Help us to remember that Your son Jesus stood out from the crowd and the world did not acknowledge Him. Give us the same kind of courage and trust that Caleb had when faced with unbelieving people. We can take You at Your Word and hold on to Your promises.
In Jesus Name,
