Numbers 14:8-9 If the Lord is pleased with us, he will lead us into that land, a land flowing with milk and honey, and will give it to us. 9 Only do not rebel against the Lord. And do not be afraid of the people of the land, because we will swallow them up. Their protection is gone, but the Lord is with us. Do not be afraid of them.

What separated Joshua and Caleb from the rest of the group of explorers? Faith. The others had lost sight of all God had done for them, and didn’t trust that God would continue to take care of them.

He promises us a new earth. Do you trust Him enough to stand up for Him, or will you forsake Him. I pray that He is pleased with us, and He brings us into Heaven and the new earth, to live eternally in His presence.
