Caleb had a spine to match his great heart. For God’s purposes that made all the difference. When the Israelites, after departing Egypt, were directed by God to cross the Jordan and posses the Promised Land they sent scouts ahead to check it out. Caleb’s friends returned from their mission believing the place to which God was calling them could not be conquered.
But Caleb, the man with an undivided heart and a strong spine, saw the situation differently. He called on the people to believe God’s promise and to be committed.
Sadly, the people were swayed by the majority opinion, but for his faithfulness, Calab was one of two men in his generation to see the Promised Land.
But because my servant Caleb has a different spirit
and follows me wholeheartedly, I will bring him into
the land he went to and his descendants will
inherit it. (NUMBERS 14:24)
Caleb found the new place God had called him to inherit. God is calling you to a new place. This new place can be conquered.
