As I’ve aged over the years, sometimes I lean towards being more cautious than courageous. In those moments, it’s encouraging to examine the story of Caleb.
At 40 years old, Caleb displayed great courage and desired to overtake the Promised Land—but he didn’t get that opportunity, due to the Israelite’s disobedience and fear.
Yet, at 85 years old, Caleb had another opportunity. Joshua was allocating portions of the Promised Land to the different tribes.
In Joshua 14:11, Caleb said, “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 that day.”
With God, courage has no boundaries. Press on to the end.
