Always True to His Word

They gave Moses this account: “We went into the land to which you sent us, and it does flow with milk and honey! Here is its fruit. But the people who live there are powerful, and the cities are fortified and very large”… Then Caleb silenced the people before Moses and said, “We should go up and take possession of the land, for we can certainly do it.”

(Numbers 13:27-28, 30 NIV)

Moses sent twelve spies to explore the land that God had promised to His people. While ten of the spies gave a negative report that frightened the people, the other two spies – Caleb and Joshua – gave a positive one. They believed that the land was theirs. Sadly, the people listened to the report of the ten spies, and thus forfeited entering the land. Although we shouldn’t be ignorant of certain facts, we should also not overlook what God has promised to do. Yes, powerful people did dwell in the Promised Land, but as Caleb and Joshua rightfully declared, with God’s help, they were able to take possession of it. Years later, Caleb, Joshua and their families witnessed the fulfillment of God’s promise because they trusted in God.

God always keeps His promises.
