Have you ever been in a situation where you had faith to go through some seemingly extra strenuous stuff and others looked at you and said it doesn’t take all of that? Have people tried to dissuade you from going the strait and narrow path that God called you to for an easier path, but you decided to take the seemingly harder way anyway because God was there with you? It truly takes someone of another spirit to push pass the push back and walk strait on into the path and promises of God despite the challenges presented.
Caleb was of a different spirit. Why? Because he was willing to go through the hard things to get to the promise of God. Moses was commanded of the Lord to send out spies to scout the land of Canaan. Canaan was a land that God had promised to his people Israel whom he had just delivered out of the land of Egypt (Numbers 13).
A man from each tribe of Israel was chosen to go out and come back with a report to give unto Moses, and the people about the land. They were to report whether they thought the Hebrews could possess the land or not. Only one man came back with a positive report, stating that they indeed could possess the land. That man’s name was Caleb.
