God was not amused when the Israelites complained at the Promised Land. He was upset because they did not trust Him and His promises. Caleb and Joshua silenced the people believing that God would help them get the land. The Lord finally decreed that the people would wander in the desert for an extra FORTY YEARS for unbelief and complaining!
For Caleb, the Lord said he would see the land because he had “a different spirit”. A different spirit is a spirit of faith. Faith causes you to be different from other people. Your success is different. Your family life is different. Your relationships are different. Everything is different because faith causes you to access all the resources of heaven. Have faith. Have a different spirit.
SCRIPTURE READING: Numbers 14:22-24, 38“not one of those who saw my glory and the signs I performed in Egypt and in the wilderness but who disobeyed me and tested me ten times – not one of them will ever see the land I promised on oath to their ancestors. No-one who has treated me with contempt will ever see it. 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. Of the men who went to explore the land, only Joshua son of Nun and Caleb son of Jephunneh survived.”
DEVOTION PRAYER: I am here to commit my life, Lord. To say I believe all that you have said in your word. I choose to have a different spirit. I choose to have a spirit of faith. In Jesus’ name!
