S. O. A. P.
Here’s Your 90 second AM Devotional!
Now give me this hill country that the Lord promised me that day. You yourself heard then that the Anakites were there and their cities were large and fortified, but, the Lord helping me, I will drive them out just as he said.
This is the demand that Caleb gave to his old friend Joshua when he was 85 years old! At the age of 40, God had promised Caleb this particular property that was filled with giants. It took him 45 years to claim it, and he finally did. He also knew that he would have to take the giants out before he claimed his property. He believed that because God told him to do it he could, no matter how old he was.
This story is proof that “You’re Never TOO OLD To Defeat Some Giants!” In the very next chapter, after Joshua had given the promised land to Caleb, the scripture says he personally went in and took down the three top giants in the land. This led to his total conquering of his divine inheritance. It did not matter to Caleb that others perhaps thought he was TOO OLD to defeat giants. In his heart he knew he could. That’s all that mattered to him. I must tell you this AM, the same holds true for you. If you believe you can, you will. With God, all things are possible. Even when you’re OLD!
How thankful I am this AM that faith works no matter what age I am. But, I also know that I’ll have to work for faith to work. Caleb had kept himself in good physical shape to fight giants at such a seasoned age. Help me do the same. Amen
