“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 13:30 NIV
Caleb and Joshua were the only two of the twelve who went to Canaan on a secret mission to check out the land, the people and the terrain who came back and said, “We can do this!” The other 10 came back and reported that the cities were too large and the people were like giants, ready to devour them. Even after God had parted the Red Sea so they could walk right through it, provided the manna from heaven, and never left them, the Israelites chose to listen to the majority view and turn away from what God commanded them.
As believers who earnestly seek God, we will find ourselves, from time to time, to be a minority voice. This does not make us wrong, but it does test our courage. God’s Word tells us to stay the course in faith, and in doing so you find yourself entering into His rest. Be at rest.🚦
