Caleb was 40 when God sent him and 11 other spies to check out Canaan. Caleb and Joshua believed God could give them the land. The others spread a bad report and discouraged Israel. Caleb and Joshua spent the next 40 years in the wilderness waiting for that generation to pass away. Caleb did not get bitter. An old man of 85 years, Caleb still wants to possess the land Moses had promised to him. And he does. Our Bibles tell us Caleb followed the Lord wholeheartedly. For 45 years Caleb kept his heart on God patiently waiting. Amazing.
