Confident!

Re: Verse reading–Numbers 13:1-2, 17-33; Joshua 14:6-10 (day six)
“Now then, give me this hill country. . .perhaps the Lord will be with me, and I shall drive them (Anakim) out as the Lord has spoken.” (Joshua 14:12)  Does your experience with God in the past cause you to trust Him for the future?  Can you look back over life and see His faithfulness?  Can you translate this testimony into courage for the challenges ahead?  Caleb could.  45 years earlier, God promised him that he would survive the wilderness judgment.  Still alive , therefore proving the faithfulness of God, he is confident that 1) the land can be continued to be conquered ,even though “giants” are still menacingly present, and 2) he would get to participate in the victory (even though he was now a senior adult).  He says  “perhaps” more from humility than doubt.  He is still willing to risk!  Still willing for the adventure to continue! Has God’s faithfulness touched your heart?  Are you confident?
