Caleb - A Faith that Wholly Followed the Lord His God

Caleb's faith is an encouragement to us all, but it was not built overnight. Caleb saw God do many miraculous things in the course of his lifetime. He knew when God said something, He was well able to perform it. So when God told Israel that the land of Canaan was theirs, Caleb had no problem believing that they were able to possess it, even though it had giants and walled cities. But Caleb's brethren were not of the same persuasion. And their unbelief caused Caleb to wait 40 extra years to possess Mount Hebron. And wait he did, but his faith remained strong and he possessed his mountain, and there was not a giant able to stand in his way because he wholly followed the Lord his God.
