Caleb and Joshua showed great faith in the midst of “giant” obstacles. When you are in the desert, you let the Devil tempt you to ask the wrong questions. “Who do you think you are dreaming like that? Who do you think you are putting yourself out there like that? What makes you think you can accomplish that? Well, if it was going to work, wouldn’t it have worked by now”? Those are desert questions. It’s when you’ve been used to not having enough or you’ve been used to somebody else oppressing you or something else oppressing you. Why did God bring me this far to leave me”? If you flip that question a little bit… “Why would God bring me this far to leave me right now”? That is a better question. Do you really think he saved you with his Son’s blood, but he’s not going to provide for your material needs? Do you really think God sent His Son and saw you through all of these dangers and toils and snares, and his grace is going away now? Why would God bring you this far to leave you? Why would he speak it if he didn’t mean it? Why would he do it if he wasn’t committed to it? He who began a good work in me is faithful to complete it.
