God is concerned about community. If one man (human) out of the whole community does what is right – follows God wholeheartedly then only he will be blessed by God.
God keeps His promises. It might take time, but it will come true whether we believe it or not. It took 45 years for Caleb to receive God’s promise. He was 40 years old when the promise came, and now he’s 85 years old. You might think – Ahhh!!! But look at what Caleb says 9 So on that day Moses swore to me, ‘The land on which your feet have walked will be your inheritance and that of your children forever, because you have followed the LORD my God wholeheartedly.’
10 “Now then, just as the LORD promised, He has kept me alive for forty-five years since the time He said this to Moses, while Israel moved about in the wilderness. So here I am today, eighty-five years old! 11 I am still as strong today as the day Moses sent me out; I’m just as vigorous to go out to battle now as I was then.” Caleb is more than alive and doing well. He is strong and vigorous, full of energy – just the same as when he was when he was in his younger days. He is ready and able and wants to do what would seem impossible. He has the right frame of mind. He knows he can attain the goal, because God is with him, helping him, and God keeps His promises. And so it was.
So, no matter your age, God will keep His promises. He will give us physically what we need to accomplish our goal with success. We only need to trust Him and take Him at His Word. Age does not matter. It is faith that counts.
Thank You God for Your faithfulness in keeping all of Your promises. Grow us up in our faith in You, so that we can trust You no matter what “things” look like. Draw us to You our King. Help us by strengthening us to walk by faith and not by sight. Be blessed, glorified, and honored in our lives. Hallelujah! Praise Your Holy Name.
