I followed the LORD my God fully. Joshua 14:8
Moses sent 12 leaders each from each tribe and Joshua to see the land of Cannan, which Lord promised as inheritance. People there where very strong, so the spies came back and gave very negative report. In man’s perspective correct, the whole nation got scared but “Then Caleb quieted the people before Moses and said, “We should by all means go up and take possession of it, for we will surely overcome it.” Num 13:30. How could He alone have hope and courage when rest all, were trembling “Nevertheless, my brethren that went up with me made the heart of the people melt: but I wholly followed the LORD my God.” Jos 14:8
The secret of strength to face adverse situation is the way we follow Jesus. Lord testified about Caleb, and that was his strength “But My servant Caleb, because he has had a different spirit and has followed Me fully” Deu 14:24. Do we fully follow, are we desperate for the fellowship of God. Are we passionate about obeying and fulfilling the purposes of God. Most of the times we get worried and shocked when situation go wrong. Remember if we follow God fully, in tough times we will not tremble but will be able to see the triumph of God.
Prayer: Lord, help me to follow you fully that I will see things through your eyes. My perspective will always be what you think. In Jesus name I pray. Amen.
