And here I am today, eighty-five years old! I’m as strong as I was the
day Moses sent me out. I’m as strong as ever in battle, whether coming
or going. So give me this hill country that God promised me. You yourself heard the report, that the Anakim were there with their great fortress cities. If God goes with me, I will drive them out, just as God said. Joshua 14:11-12
You’ve got to admire Caleb’s faith. Not only was he one of the only two spies to bring back a report to Moses saying "We can do it! God is with us! Let’s go for it!" – but here he is forty-five years later at the ripe old age of 85 – still keeping the faith. I hope and pray that my faith, my passion and my "spunk" for God only increases with age.
