Faith Conquers Giants

So now give me this hill country of which the Lord spoke on that day; for you heard on that day how the Anakim were there, with great fortified cities; it may be that the Lord will be with me, and I shall drive them out, as the Lord said. Joshua 14:12

After the inheritance was divided among different tribes and families, Caleb came to Joshua and reminded him of God’s promise He had made 40 years ago. Caleb and Joshua were two of the ten spies sent by God to Kadesh-Barnea who gave positive reports. Meanwhile, the remaining eight spies discouraged the people from going to the promised land because they had seen the sons of Anak (giants) living there. God promised Caleb the hill country that he asked for. Caleb was confident in fighting and driving the giants away because of his faith in God. He was already eighty-five years old. His strength, and above all his faith, remained the same as the day God had commissioned him to spy. Caleb had an unwavering faith, which is very inspiring and encouraging. God gave him the victory to drive the giants away and possess the land. The faith of Caleb reminds us that we can overcome anything as long as we seek, depend upon God, and claim His promises
