Wholehearted! Commitment to CHRIST is a daily calling.

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 was a “wholehearted” person. He and Joshua were part of a twelve-man reconnaissance team that explored the Promised Land and gave a report to Moses and the people. Caleb said, “We should go up and take possession of the land, for we can certainly do it” (Num. 13:30). But ten members of the team said they couldn’t possibly succeed. In spite of GOD’S promises, they saw only obstacles (vv. 31–33) 

Ten men caused the people to lose heart and grumble against GOD, which led to forty years of wandering in the desert. But Caleb never quit. The LORD said, “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” (14:24). Forty-five years later GOD honored His promise when Caleb, at the age of 85, received the city of Hebron “because he followed the LORD, the GOD of Israel, wholeheartedly” (Josh. 14:14).

Commitment to CHRIST is a daily calling.

Centuries later an expert in the law asked JESUS, “Which is the greatest commandment in the Law?” JESUS replied, “ ‘LOVE the LORD your GOD with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind.’ This is the first and greatest commandment” (Matt. 22:35–38).

Today Caleb is still inspiring us with his confidence in a GOD who deserves our wholehearted LOVE, reliance, and commitment.

LORD, may we LOVE You wholeheartedly today and follow You every day of our journey on this earth.

Commitment to CHRIST is a daily calling.

INSIGHT:

The ten spies found the Anakim a daunting challenge because they viewed them in comparison to themselves. Joshua and Caleb, however, viewed them in comparison to GOD. Many of life’s circumstances—health concerns, relationship struggles, financial setbacks—can either be viewed in comparison to our own frailties or in the light of our all-powerful GOD.
