Monday, November 6 – Joshua 14:6

Nov 5, 2023

Then the sons of Judah approached Joshua in Gilgal, and Caleb the son of Jephunneh the Kenizzite said to him, “You know the word which the Lord spoke to Moses the man of God on account of you and me in Kadesh-barnea.”

 

There are some things we know intuitively and well. We know how to brush our teeth, drive, and tie our shoes. These are tasks so natural to us that we don’t even have to think about how to do them, we just do them. We did not always know how to do those things, but we have learned how to do them almost automatically. In the process of learning these activities, we must move from a place of knowledge about a subject to the action of performing the task. Knowing we could get to our destination in a car without knowing how to drive would be useless. If we knew how to clean our teeth but did not regularly brush them, they would decay.

 

Caleb had made it a point to remember the Word of the Lord. He not only knew God was faithful to His promises, but He also actively held onto the promises of God. So many of us would say God is faithful and keeps His promises, but we do not know what He’s promised or actively hold on to His promises. What if we knew the promises of God so well that we could recall them automatically in times of stress and trouble? What if we immediately trusted in the middle of our anxiety that He is with us? What if we could not only recall that the Holy Spirit lives inside of us but also use the discernment He gives every day in the decisions we make? Our lives will change when we not only know God’s truth but also apply His Word to our lives, believing and holding to the truth of His promises.

 

  • What are some of the promises of God you know?
  • Why is it important to know and apply the promises of God in your life?
  • Pray and ask God to remind you of His promises today.
